We're delighted to announce that our annual Play on the Pitch event will take place at The Super 6 Stadium on Tuesday 30th April, with kick off at 6.30pm.
As with previous seasons, supporters wishing to play in the event can bid to play in their preferred position on either the home or away team.
The teams will be managed by members of the Pools’ management staff, while players will wear special one-off kits this year.
As ever, there will be a full ninety-minute fixture played on the pitch, before the teams head up for a post-match meal and analysis in the hospitality areas.
Bidding for each position in both teams begins at just £75, but again we’re offering supporters the chance to guarantee their position for £130.
By guaranteeing a payment of £130 for your chosen position, it is yours for the game – providing yours is the first bid for that place.
However, if you would prefer to try and grab a spot in one of the teams for a lower cost then all shirts will initially be up for auction starting at the usual £75.
Both teams (Home and Away) are numbered 1 – 11 as follows:
1 – Goalkeeper
2 – Right Back
3 – Left Back
4 – Central Midfield
5 – Centre Back
6 – Central Back
7 – Right Wing
8 – Central Midfield
9 – Striker
10 – Striker
11 – Left Wing
This ultimate Pools package will include:
* Full kit for each player, including name and number
* Full ninety-minute game on The Super 6 Stadium pitch
* Team Photo
* Copy of the game
* Post-match meal
* Post match analysis with the two Managers
Fans wishing to take part in the game can bid for one of the shirt numbers and the highest bidder at the deadline* of 5pm on Tuesday 2nd April will win that position in the team.
Email your bid to firstname.lastname@example.org, giving details of your name, address, age, contact telephone number and chosen team/position along with amount you wish to bid.
Once you've submitted your bid you will receive an email confirmation, plus another email if your bid has been beaten.
*Fans wishing to bid should be of appropriate fitness to participate in a full ninety-minute game and also over the age of 16.
