This weekend marks a special moment for Peterborough United fans, as the illustrious FA Cup trophy will be present at the ABAX Stadium, for club supporters to get their hands on.
Fans can have a picture with the FA Cup on Sunday 30th October in the Posh Club Shop, between 12pm and 3pm. The Shop will be open from 10am until 4pm and club photographer Joe Dent will be in attendance to capture that special moment.
The occasion marks the build up to the FA Cup, 1st round, home tie the following week, with non-league side Chesham United, which takes place at the ABAX Stadium on Saturday 5th November
The football club have invited a number of local junior football teams to the event to have their picture taken with the iconic trophy, while club sponsors, Mick George Ltd will have mascot ‘Mick the Skip’ present, providing entertainment.
Jon Stump, Finance Director at Mick George Ltd commented: ‘’The start of the FA Cup is a landmark moment each season that I know supporters, players and management alike, look forward too. After an impressive win against local rivals recently, the club will be going into the match full of confidence looking for a good run in the cup.’’
Stump Continued: ‘’Earlier this year, we welcomed the F.A Cup at the Mick George Training Academy which was a proud moment for our business, to be associated with such an iconic sporting event. The opportunity provided many of the academy prospects the chance to play out their dreams and lift the trophy, something many of the best players in the world have never achieved. This time around the fans get the opportunity, which will be equally as memorable for them.’’
