Ever dreamed of emulating your football heroes and scoring at Wembley in front of over 70,000 fans? This dream will become a reality for three lucky fans as they step up to the penalty spot during half-time at the England v France international on Wednesday, 17th November 2010.
Warning, this ultimate Wembley experience, courtesy of the Wembley Stadium Tour is not for the faint hearted. Introduced to the crowd over the Wembley PA, each winner will take a nerve wracking walk to the penalty spot as they bid to join icons of the game by seeing the ball hit the back of the net and share the adulation of the England fans.
Open to the public for the first time ever, the promotion will see three contestants chosen at random to take part and show they’ve got what it takes. Fans first step on the journey to taking a penalty involves a simple registration to the Wembley newsletter by 3pm on 11th November www.wembleystadium.com/events/enewsletter
Each winner will receive a complimentary behind the scenes tour of Wembley as well as being able to invite a guest to enjoy the game and penalty shoot-out. The winner of the penalty shoot-out will also receive a new England kit and an anthem jacket courtesy of official supporters Umbro plus a product experience courtesy of Mars which includes two complimentary tickets for the next home England game, a signed England shirt and a couple of mars bars too.
Adam Burrage, Wembley Stadium Tour Manager, said: “Everyone has their greatest Wembley moment and the stadium tour gives you the chance to relive yours. This season we are excited to introduce the opportunity for fans to create their very own greatest Wembley moment by scoring at one of the World’s most famous stadiums.”
The Wembley Stadium tour invites visitors to re-live the greatest football triumphs at the home of football. Feel the tension and expectation as you talk tactics in the England changing room and experience the electricity in the air as you line up in the players tunnel, waiting for that moment when you push through the doors and step out onto the legendary stage.
During the 90 minute tour, visitors are also able to climb the 107 steps to the Royal Box and have their picture taken with the replica FA Cup Trophy. They can also catch a rare glimpse of iconic artefacts associated with Wembley Stadium’s unique heritage, including the 1966 World Cup crossbar, 1948 Olympic torch and Bobby Moore statue erected in his honour.
