Fan auction winner looking forward to Club Legends Cup tournament in July...12 LUCKY supporters have won the bidding to be part of their respective teams’ line-up at the Club Legends Cup tournament, which is taking place at the LG Arena on Saturday, July 12th 2014.
The recent auctions certainly captured the imagination and raised around £15,000 for Midlands’ blood cancer Charity, Cure Leukaemia.
Representing The Saddlers will be Matthew Robinson and Daniel Vayro, who will be given the full VIP treatment on the day as well as lining up alongside their heroes.
“I can’t wait,” said Daniel Vayro, whose preferred position is as a central defender. “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity; when something like this comes up, you have to go for it.
“I’ve always wanted to play for Walsall FC ever since I was a child and now I will be turning out for the club alongside some of my heroes. It’s going to be a great day!
“Jorge Leitao was a particular favourite of mine, so to be in the same team as him is amazing.
“I’ll have quite a few family and friends coming along to support me and the team and hopefully I won’t let them down.”
Tickets for the event are on sale now at £10 (adults) and £2 (under-16s) plus booking fees. They can be purchased by calling 0844-338 8000 or by clicking here...
All money raised from then event, which includes Aston Villa, Birmingham City, West Bromwich Albion, Wolves and Coventry City, will be donated to Cure Leukaemia.
There will be a whole host of events taking place at the LG Arena throughout the day with fun for all the family. There will also be a junior and girls’ tournament as well as the main event during the evening.
