Yorkshire based sports fans may have felt somewhat starved of action over the past 12 months, however, a string of charity events screening each England game at the forthcoming Euro’s is coming to the rescue.
The Magnificent 7 will see the Royal Armouries in Leeds transformed into a bona fide festival of football, with each game preceded by a stunning 3-course meal, special guest speakers, and top-drawer live entertainment, including acclaimed comedian Jed Stone. Some well-known faces from the world of sport will also be present, watch this space for further updates.
First-class footy action
With all the action beamed onto gigantic indoor screens, alongside pre- during and post-match analysis, there won’t be a bad seat in the house when it comes to viewing the first-class footy action. It’s the perfect event to celebrate a family reunion, birthday, corporate get together or simply football itself.
The event is named in honour of some of the world’s most iconic players who have worn the number 7 shirt for their country and club, as well as nodding towards the number of games England will play if things go their way.
As well as being the ultimate way to celebrate the electrifying Euro action, there will be a string of fundraising auctions to raise money for some charities close to sports fans' hearts. They include MDNA as a way of tribute to legendary Leeds Rhinos player Rob Burrows, the Alzheimer’s Society and Prostate Cancer UK.
Strict COVID-19 measures will be in place to protect guests and events staff, and VIP options including chauffeur services will be available for those looking to make their evening that little bit more memorable.
It all kicks off with the first event on Sunday 13th June, when England play Croatia at 2 pm, followed by England V Scotland on Friday 18th June at 8 pm and then England v Czech Republic on Tuesday 22nd June at 8 pm.
The exact dates and times of the following three matches will be announced when places are confirmed, with the show-stopping final set for Sunday 11th July at 8 pm. Whatever happens, one thing is for sure - football is back in a big way.
