Five football fans are aiming to become the first group of people to visit the International football stadiums of England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales inside 24 hours
Five football fans are aiming to become the first group of people to visit the International football stadiums of England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales inside 24 hours when they take on the Four Stadium Challenge this month.
Simon Cox, Chris Curry, Anthony Foreman, Malcolm Blackburn and Phil Goulding will be leaving the Bobby Moore Statue on Wednesday 15th October at 19:00 and will head north to visit Hampden Park in Glasgow before taking the Ferry to Belfast to visit Windsor Park and then fly to the Millennium Stadium before returning to Wembley Stadium inside the 24 hour period.
The team will be travelling on four different methods of transport with a long journey north to Glasgow by road, ferry to Belfast, flight to Cardiff and train returning to Wembley.
The challenge, which is raising awareness of their nominated charity, Niamhs Next Step, has already raised over £700 for the charity who raise funds for research into Neuroblastoma, an aggressive form of childhood cancer.
Cox said "We are really looking forward to this challenge and we would like to thank everyone who has assisted with the planning as well as our sponsors who have enabled us to take on the challenge. It's going to be an interesting and exciting challenge as we take football stadium ground hopping to the International stage. I am delighted that both Chris and Anthony are taking on the challenge as Trustees of the charity as well as CONIFA Vice President Malcolm Blackburn who is flying in from the Isle of Man to join the team.
