Premier League In A Day
Welcome to Premier League in a Day, a great charity event for Sport Relief organised by Anglian Home Improvements. Twenty different 5-a-side teams will aim to complete 380 Premier League fixtures in one single day. As I’m sure you can imagine this takes an enormous amount of organising and planning with matches starting early in the morning, and continuing well into the night. However all that effort goes toward the extremely worthwhile Sport Relief charity. We previously ran this event in 2012 and raised in excess of £20,000, all of which went to Sport Relief.
Current Event Standings
Check here for updates on the teams positions throughout the day.
Because the previous event was such a huge success in terms of raising money, and also extremely good fun and enjoyed by all who took part, Anglian have taken the decision to do it all again on Saturday March 15th 2014. This time the aim is to raise in excess of £25,000 so please give generously! To see what we have raised so far view our running total.
You can even keep an eye on the days events as we will be updating our league table at regular intervals throughout the day. Who knows maybe this could be a chance for your favourite team to win the league.
Please like and share our pages on Facebook and Twitter to help spread the word and raise even more money for Sport Relief.
F2 Skill School
Also making an appearance at Premier League in a Day this year are very special guests and freestyle football specialists the F2. A world record will be attempted at 12:00 pm. After that they will be running a skill school at 12:30 – 1:30 pm to give everyone the chance to learn a few things about football freestyling. It may even give the players a few strings to add to their bow for later in the day as well. If you would like to come along and watch then please do, you can find the address for the event in the ‘Get Involved’ section below. You might’ve recently seen a collaboration between the F2 and Anglian Home Improvements, where they recreated a parody of an old Nike World Cup advert. You can view that video here.
If you fancy helping out at the event we are looking for stewards to help the day run smoothly. We also need referees to volunteer some of their time, even if it’s just for a couple of hours it will be a huge help. If you can lend a hand please email us at [email protected].
Of course the biggest contribution we hope you will make is by donating to our Sport Relief page. You can even get your friends and family to donate as well if you like!
If you would like to come along on the day to show your support then please do! The address you need is:
The first game will be starting at 9:00 am and the last game will finish at 8:20 pm.
Official Footballing Trophies
We are delighted to be able to say that the official FA cup and Barclays Premier League trophy will also be making an appearance on the day. If you’ve ever dreamt of having your picture taken with these legendary items then this is your chance! The trophies will be available for photos with the general public between 2:00 – 3:30 pm. Just remember to bring your own cameras.
