Following a sporting Olympic break, football is back with a bang! After an exhilarating finale to last season’s premier league, the new season is already hotting up and to celebrate in style Soccer Saturday’s main man Jeff Stelling is to hit the road flanked by Matt Le Tissier, Paul Merson, Phil Thompson, Charlie Nicholas plus cult favourite Chris Kamara for a fun filled night of hilarious football stories.
Following a sell-out show in Bournemouth hailed by Harry Redknapp as “The best night out for any football fan” Jeff and the boys will be hitting Birmingham’s NIA on Thursday 18 October.
Plans for the tour include the world’s biggest ever head to head football quiz, exciting and electrifying Q & A sessions, live and interactive games and activities, and hilarious panel debates. Footie fans can join Jeff, Kammy, Charlie, Thommo, Merse and Le Tiss as they entertain with football stories past and present. Audience members can also ask the panel anything they like from the world of football from new transfers and signings to premier league predictions and everything else in between.
Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in the world’s biggest ever football quiz anchored by Jeff Stelling. There will also be buzzer rounds with audience members invited on stage to help the pundits. Brave attendees can even try to catch Jeff out with obscure facts and figures. An Evening with Jeff Stelling is a unique opportunity for fans to become directly involved in the show!
Drunken nights, living with Gazza from Paul Merson, Bill Shankly’s famous insults told by Phil Thompson, playing in the Glasgow derby from the perspective of Charlie Nicholas and tales of running the gauntlet at Fratton Park and run-ins with referees from Matt le Tissier are some of the highlights from an evening of hilarious and insightful football anecdotes.
The last word of the night will always go to Paul Merson who will delight with a jaw-dropping anecdote of how NOT to manage a football club. And if you’ve never seen Chris Kamara sing you may be in for a treat!
Jeff Stelling commented;
“The feedback we’ve had from the tour so far has been amazing. Yes it is hard to control the boys but that’s what makes it so hilarious! The tour is overflowing with some of the funniest football anecdotes I have ever heard. I’m told that aside from match days, it’s the best night out for all football fans! “
