Some of you may remember the Sport Relief event that took place 2 years ago in Norwich – Premier League In A Day. It is a charity event where 20 teams, made up of Anglian Home Improvements employees, friends and family, play each other twice in less than 24 hours, replicating the full English Premier League season, each team representing a Premier League team. That is a total of 380 games!
The event is taking place at the Norfolk FA’s Football Development Centre in Norwich on March 17th, where 20 teams will represent all of the Premier League teams competing to win the league. Should they be successful they will have bragging rights over their friends and will have raised money for Sport Relief and awareness for the less fortunate, which makes it all the more worthwhile.
Two years ago this superb event raised just over £20,000 for Sport Relief, all thanks to the support of the teams that entered, the Premier League Clubs that got behind the event and the charity auction that was held at Anglian too. The Premier League trophy was one of the highlights of the tournament as members of the public and the teams participating got to have pictures taken with the legendary trophy. For some people I am sure that was a dream come true!
Over the weeks building up to this event, we will be blogging about who is representing each Premier League team, introducing you to the club captain, finding out where they are travelling from and what their professions are.
