My day at the Reebok stadium courtesy of Football fancast.com and 188bet.com.
I have been a follower of FFC for a year or two now and often get involved in some of the competitions, up until now I had not won anything so when I saw the opportunity to win premiership tickets I jumped at the chance.
I found out on Saturday morning (via email) that I had not only won tickets to Man city vs Bolton at the Reebok but I had won co-operate hospitality tickets for me and a friend.
Having never had hospitality I did not know what to expect, and to be honest, the experience was miles better than I could have imagined. First we went to the ground and picked up our tickets and were shown to our seats in the Platinum lounge, on the way up to the lounge I spotted Martin Tyler and realised the day was going to be fun. Once in our lounge we were offered a drink (free of charge up to £20 per person) and asked if we would like our starters. We then had a wonderful three course meal.
On each place-mat was a programme, teamsheet, betting sheet and a quiz. Whilst we ate and chatted a compare kept us amused with jokes and stories whilst a magician worked the room. All in all the pre match entertainment couldn’t be faulted.
On my way down to my seats I bumped into Harry Redknapp and Joe Jordan and had a bit of banter with them on the way to my seats. Being a lifelong spurs fan and season ticket holder this really was the highlight of my day.
The stars continued to appear including Patrick Viera and De Jong who were only a few yards behind us. The seats we had were situated just behind the Man city dug out and gave a real insight into Manchini’s tantrums and touch line demeanour. The game itself was a really entertaining one, topped off by a David Silva 1st goalscorer coming in at 7-1 for me. Happy Days!!!
After the game we heard from Brian Gunn the ex Norwich keeper who told stories of old and we also had the chance to meet the man of the match Gary Cahill, who I managed to pull aside for a photo and autograph.
All in all a fantastic experience and something I will remember for a long time. I am very grateful to the sponsors for the fantastic day out.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
