Play against the chairman!

8 April 2018

WAWAW #SWFC150 takes place this coming Wednesday, 11 April, and we have an added attraction to proceedings with the opportunity to play against the chairman on the Hillsborough pitch!

Mr Chansiri will be involved at the heart of the action throughout the day – and we are pleased to announce the chairman has made the cut for the squad when the SWFC Staff line up against the SWFC Fans!

Supporters were asked to submit their soccer skills via our official Facebook page to jockey for a place in the Fans Team, from which a talented squad has already been assembled.

We will be inviting more budding stars to contact the club and register for a chance to play!

Watch out on Monday for more details!

Elsewhere, this special event offers some fantastic opportunities for fans of all ages, including treasure hunts and Zorb Football on the pitch.

The junior Owls treasure hunt starts from 10.30am and once numbers are collated, we will respond with a time slot for arrival, which will be in 15-minute intervals between 10.30am and 12.30pm.

Juniors taking part, who must be 11 and under and accompanied by an adult, will arrive at South Stand reception and explore VIP areas of Hillsborough, taking part in great activities along the way.

Kids’ games will kick off the football fun from 11.00am, with over 100 slots available for youngsters to step onto the S6 turf and play.

Time slots are:

11.00am - 11.45am: 5/6/7s - 40 places
11.45am - 12.30pm: 8/9/10s - 40 places
12.30pm - 1.30pm: 11/12/13s - 40 places
1.00pm - 1.30pm: 14/15/16s - 12 places

The football finale bringing the event to a close is the SWFC Fans v SWFC Staff match, refereed by ex-Premier League referee Uriah Rennie….who is certain to ensure the game is played in the right spirit!

WAWAW #SWFC150 has something for all the family and we are looking forward to welcoming you all to Hillsborough on Wednesday!
