04.08.2016 - Local rivals go âHead to Head' and so can you
Mick George Ltd as official sponsors to both Peterborough United and Cambridge United Football Club has been busy in the close season revamping its ‘Challenge a Pro’ competition that they introduced last season.
As the new name suggests, ‘Head to Head Challenge’, will see the two local rivals battle it out against one another in a sequence of random encounters. However, the sponsor has spiced it up with both players and fans representing the respective clubs this time around.
The format will see two pros go ‘head to head’ with two fans doing likewise, combining results to see which City can claim bragging rights. Throughout the season, the challenges will be released via the club and sponsors web and social platforms, giving fellow supporters the chance to view, while guessing who they thought was victorious to claim prizes.
The challenge will take place at the Mick George Training Academy in Peterborough on the 8th September.
The list of challenges will include:
1. Table tennis
2. Crossbar Challenge
3. Skip challenge
4. Dizzy penalty shootout
6. Question of sport
7. Game of Pool
8. Cracker challenge
9. Mick George Inflatable Football Game
10. After 8 Challenge
Jon Stump, Finance Director at Mick George Ltd commented: ‘’It is rare that opportunities such as this arise for fans to go behind the scenes and get up close to their clubs players. As we witnessed last year, for those that experienced just that, it was a truly memorable occasion. It was also embraced by the players in a competitive, yet light hearted manner which made for some brilliant footage.
Stump Continued: ‘’We’re sure the developments that have been made this season will add a little extra competition. After all, no one like losing and especially not to your local rivals.’’
