The following article is a special announcement from the charity Right To Play for Soccerlens readers. Have a look, check out their website and if you’re interested in participating, there’s a possible competition taking place soon to win a berth on the RTP team for the RTP World Cup.
For anyone who’s daydreamed their way off the sofa and on to the pitch while watching Match of the Day, make space in your diaries. Stamford Bridge will be hosting the third annual Right To Play World Cup on 22nd May.
It`s an exclusive opportunity for you and 9 colleagues or friends to live out those playground football fantasies while supporting Chelsea FC`s global charity partner, Right To Play.
It promises to be a very special day. 16 teams will battle it out to be crowned Right To Play World Champions 2009. Each team will get their own exclusive Adidas strip to take home and be warmed up by an Olympic athlete, before taking to the pitch for a 5-a-side qualifying and 7- and 11-a-side knockout football competition.
As the day reaches a climax Chelsea Legends will return to the Bridge to play with the Cup and Plate finalists. All 16 teams will spend the evening in the Harris suite where they`ll enjoy dinner and a sports quiz hosted by a famous face from the world of football.
In previous years former Chelsea manager Avram Grant, ex England cricket captain Alec Stewart, the Welsh rugby 7`s team, Chelsea`s Ray Wilkins, ex England rugby union captain Phil Vickery, Sky Sports Mat Lorenzo, and Blues legends such as Peter ‘the cat` Bonneti, Ron ‘Chopper` Harris and many more familiar faces have come along to make the event just that little bit more special.
Stamford Bridge has been graced by generations of Chelsea legends and some of the finest players in football. Whether you want to stand on the sideline like Mourinho, slam in the goals like Peter Osgood, weave some magic like Gianfranco Zola, or get your revenge on the Blues by sinking one in the back of their net, then this could be your chance.
The Right To Play World Cup is a unique opportunity to play on the hallowed turf of one of the world’s biggest football clubs whilst supporting a global sport for development charity working in 23 countries across the globe. We believe that when children play, the world wins!
