A free-to-attend football-themed event for kids and families will be pitching up in Bolton next month (April), offering kids and their families the opportunity to get closer to the action and enjoy a range of fun-filled activities.
Hosted by leading kids’ collectibles company Topps, the Swap and Play Tour will be stopping by at the Macron Stadium on Thursday 9 April 2015 between 11am and 4pm, with players on hand to meet fans during the day (player appearance and times are subject to change).
At the event, football fans, sticker fans and football trading card collectors can meet stars from Bolton Wanderers’ first team to grab an autograph, as well as having their picture taken with the real Barclays Premier League trophy.
Those who register their attendance at the event before Thursday 2 April 2015 will receive an exclusive Limited Edition Match Attax card, so there’s never been a better reason to put the free event in the diary.
Freebies, fun and games
There are tons of great activities for kids to get involved in. Match Attax collectors will be able to get their hands on their favourite players and the last few Match Attax cards and Premier League Stickers they need in the Swap Shop, as well as having the chance to take on fellow Match Attax fans at the action-packed game of super skill and awesome stats.
What’s more, visitors can get football freestyle tips from record-breaking super-star, Dan Magness, and enter exclusive football-tastic giveaways.
There will also be a Charity Tombola, where for a £1 donation to the NSPCC, collectors can bid to get their hands on amazing prizes such as signed merchandise, using swaps as currency.
Topps Ultimate Football Quiz!
Brand new for this year at the Swap and Play Tour is the Ultimate Football Quiz, created to find Britain's biggest football brain box!
To enter, fans team up with a family member or friend, one of whom must be between the ages of 6-14 years and the other over 15 years and register their team on www.toppsfootball.co.uk in advance. Teams then get swotting up on Barclays Premier League stats and facts before coming along to the event at Villa Park to put their brains to the test.
The winners from the day’s event will be invited to Villa Park Stadium, the home of Aston Villa Football Club in Birmingham, to compete in the Topps Ultimate Football Quiz Finals in front of the crowd at the Aston Villa vs West Ham game on 9 May 2015.
At the tour event, Topps is also inviting fans to play against other collectors to see who has what it takes to become the Match Attax Master in the Match Attax 2015 World Championships!
