COMMUNITIES URGED TO CLUB TOGETHER FOR GRASSROOTS FOOTBALL

Communities are being encouraged to club together to support local football teams, to give youngsters the chance to win a training session with ex-premier league superstars, Ryan Giggs and Nicky Butt.

The ‘Club Together’ initiative, created by Topps, publisher of Match Attax – the world’s best-selling football trading card game – has been launched to support grassroots football clubs, community squads, school teams and school classes nationwide.

Teachers and coaches from youth teams in the area are invited to register their squad online at www.toppsfootball.co.uk and ask players, fans, families and locals to ‘club together’ to collect unique codes printed inside the packets of the new Match Attax Extra 2015 trading cards.

Collectors simply enter the codes online against their nominated local team name to enable their chosen squad to work their way up the leader board to win a series of prizes, including a training session with Manchester United stars Ryan Giggs and Nicky Butt, a week-long adventure holiday at Kingswood Camps, plus team kits, training equipment and more.

Rod Pearson, Marketing Director at Topps, explains:

“Club Together offers a great incentive to get local residents, grassroots teams, community clubs, sports teams and Match Attax Extra collectors working together to support the footballing stars of the future.

“At Topps, we are dedicated to giving children the chance to benefit from our support and from the expertise of heroes and legends on the pitch. With such incredible prizes and opportunities available, there has never been a better time for local squads, school clubs and communities to team up to give passionate young footballers a chance to earn amazing experiences.”
