POSH First Game Entertainment
Only days to go until the new 2017 / 18 football league season kicks-off, and the excitement is there to see for everyone connected with the POSH, who will get their first run out against newly promoted Plymouth Argyle FC, at the ABAX Stadium this Saturday 6th August.
As ever, club sponsors Mick George Ltd has been busy freshening things up in the close season, and are hoping to make the fixture a memorable one.
A special fanzone will be installed adjacent to the ticket office on London Road, where an abundance of activities will be taking place for fans to entertain themselves prior to kick-off, and even the opportunity to take home some free memorabilia.
The Mick George Cheerleaders are likely to take centre stage, performing a host of new routines, as well as doing the rounds, on the hunt for willing ‘selfie’ takers, that will each receive a complimentary t-shirt with the entire Peterborough United FC fixture list on the reverse, and the logos of sponsors Mick George Ltd, BGL and Princebuild.
And that’s not all, further prizes will be up for grabs on the Mick George Inflatable Shootout, which has proven such a hit with the clubs younger fans, that the game’ will be an ever present at all home fixtures this campaign. As will mascot ‘Mick the Skip’, who will no doubt be in his usual high spirits.
With pre match entertainment negotiated, the half time interval has also undergone a bit of a revamp. The new look ‘Skip Challenge’; will see one POSH supporter go head to head with an away supporter in a multi-ball encounter. Cash prizes are up for grabs each fixture, for the competitor who successfully ‘chipped’ in to the skip the most, with a jackpot £500 available for the person who tops the leader board at the season’s finale. Sign up here, for your chance to attempt the skip challenge.
Jon Stump, Finance Director at Mick George Ltd commented: ‘’The first game of the season is always a landmark, especially for supporters who generally create an excellent atmosphere, after a sustained period without football in their lives over the summer. Our aim is to enhance that experience, with a few extra additions, which have in previous times, been well received.’'
