Notts County To Host Inaugural Football Rocks Tournament This Saturday

11 May 2015

Top musicians to test their footballing skills here at Meadow Lane to raise money for charity...

Jake Bugg, The Enemy, Saint Raymond and Reverend and The Makers are just some of the big name Rock Stars who will compete for the inaugural FOOTBALL ROCKS TROPHY to determine once and for all just which Band are the best Football Players in the land!
Jake Bugg and fellow Nottingham lads The Swiines have called their mates together for the day in aid of Jake’s Robin Hoodie Foundation and the British Heart Foundation. Eight teams, comprising members of over 16 bands, will compete at Meadow Lane during the day for the right to play off in the final and the chance to earn eternal bragging rights.
“I love football and the lads and I have a game wherever we can when on tour,” explained Jake Bugg. “Growing up watching Notts County play at Meadow Lane with my Grandad I can’t wait to play there with my mates in front of a good crowd and raise some money for such great causes.
“The team are organising a really great day and the atmosphere will be brilliant for all ages with plenty of surprise visits during the day, everyone’s being so generous with their time.”
Rory Black of The Swiines added: “We’ve arranged teams from all over the country and some real rivalry is already developing, teams are training and some really serious planning is going into the teams and tactics! 

“I know the clash between The Enemy, who are massive Coventry Supporters and very handy footballers, and Jake’s and our band being Notts County lads will be a feature.”
Gates open at 10:30am on the day, with the action getting underway from 11am and will culminate in the final match at 5pm. Tickets are only £10 + booking fee for adults with children (under 7s purchased with an adult ticket) only £1.
Buy your tickets on the cash turnstiles on matchday. 
Team Mascot and sponsorship packages are available and meet and greets, signing sessions, unique memorabilia and merchandise will be available on the day.
