Shaquille O'Neal is backing the Cobblers for the play offs

11 June 2020

Basketball Legend Shaquille O'Neal will be a Cobbler in the Crowd for the League 2 play off semi final against Cheltenham Town.

Shaq, widely regarded as one of the greatest players in basketball history, has thrown his support behind Northampton Town and the Cobbler in the Crowd scheme and his cut out will be included in the crowd as the Cobblers take on the Robins.

A picture of Shaq wearing his Cobblers scarf has been produced on a cut out and will be installed at the PTS Academy Stadium ahead of the game.

All supporters can arrange to be ‘virtually' inside the PTS Academy Stadium for the play off semi final first leg against Cheltenham Town as part of the Cobbler in the Crowd promotion.

As a Cobbler in the Crowd, supporters can arrange to have their own face in the stand or alternatively this would make a fantastic Father's Day gift, a birthday present for a loved one or even a tribute to someone no longer with us who used to enjoy Northampton Town games.
