Events agency Chillisauce has teamed up with former Arsenal FC player Perry Groves to create a new teambuilding and incentive package that involves playing a game of football and socialising with former premiership and England footballers.
There are more than 50 football legends to choose from, including European Cup winner Teddy Sheringham, Arsenal stars Paul Merson and Ray Parlour, former England and West Ham player Tony Cottee, Liverpool’s Dietmar Hamann and Southampton’s Matt le Tissier.
Steve Perkins, head of corporate at Chillisauce, said: “We are constantly asked for unique ideas. If you are looking for a way to motivate a sales team, reward achievements or build relationships with clients, this once in a lifetime activity will give everyone something to talk about for the rest of the year. The response from participants so far has been amazing.”
Perry Groves said: “Being a professional footballer was the best job in the world and those of us that did it feel lucky and privileged as we know it’s something millions of people dream of doing for a living. I’ve always loved playing and I’m no different these days, so the opportunity to have a kick about with fans and tell them stories over a few drinks is something I really enjoy.”
The activity is available across the UK and venue choices can range from local Powerleague pitches to the biggest stadiums in the country. Chillisauce will take care of every part of the event, and prices start from £65 per person.
