FA CupTrophy Tour comes to Burnley FC

Sarah Kendall from The FA Cup Sponsorship Office has contacted Vital Burnley asking if we could promote the FA Cup Trophy Tour coming soon to Turf Moor.Details are therefore provided below

CLARET FANS GET THE CHANCE TO MAKE THEIR OWN PIECE OF FA CUP HISTORY

The magic of The FA Cup will be coming to town on Monday 02 February 2009 as the all new FA Cup Trophy Tour comes to Turf Moor.

And hoping to get their hands on the Cup will be Claret players (tbc) who will join the tour to meet and greet fans.

The Football Association and lead FA Cup Sponsor, E.ON, have joined forces to launch this unique nationwide tour of The FA Cup aimed at giving young fans the chance to sample the history, heritage and magic of the world`s most famous domestic cup competition.

The Trophy Tour is a fully interactive experience, aimed at children between 7-11 and their families. It lasts approximately 30 minutes and leads visitors through a fun and engaging journey, reliving the most memorable goals, shock giant-killings and classic Cup Final triumphs from the past 128 years. Taking centre stage is the opportunity for visitors to walk in the footsteps of Wembley legends, by scoring the winning goal at Wembley in a virtual FA Cup Final, and then create their very own piece of history as they get to hold the actual FA Cup trophy. These magic FA Cup moments will be captured on film and made available for download from facuptrophytour.co.uk.

The website also hosts a great FA Cup competition, with monthly prizes to win tickets to an FA Cup Semi Final game, as well as the chance to win a place for a child to walk out and accompany The FA Cup onto the pitch at The FA Cup Final 2009.

Outside, visitors to the tour can get involved in the action by showing off their skills on the Tour`s mini football pitch. Those who want some competitive fun can try their hand at 'Power Kick`, a football game where the speed of their kick is measured against the professionals.

The FA Cup Trophy Tour powered by E.ON will open at 11am and close at 7pm. During term time, the morning session (11am - 3pm) will be open to local schools, before being made open to the general public. To gain entry to The FA Cup Trophy Tour powered by E.ON, visitors must pre-register via this link:
