Never mind South Africa 2010, the event
industry Football Day is coming home?to Elland Road today.
The Mash Media Football and Spa Day has
kicked off at the home of promoted Leeds United FC with 10 teams, including line
ups from Conference Leeds, NewcastleGateshead, Event UK and The NEC.
The teams are battling out on the pitch for
the coveted industry trophy. Their players (and the odd ringer no doubt) line up
with a sprinkling of old pros, including Peter Beardsley, Graham Roberts, Micky
Hazard and Steve Sedgeley.
Twenty female organisers have signed up for
the spa activity provided by Chevin Country Park Hotel and
Conference and events manager at Elland Road, Helen
Briden, says: “We’re really excited to welcome Mash Media and distinguished
guests to Elland
Road today. It comes at an exciting time with our
redevelopment plans beginning tomorrow.”
Leeds clinched promotion
to the Championship on the last day of the season and the ground is set to
undergo a major refurbishment.
Mash Media’s event industry Football Day has
previously been held at Coventry’s Ricoh Stadium,
West Ham United’s Upton Park and Chelsea FC’s Stamford Bridge.
