THE 2012-13 Premier League season may have come to an end but it’s still not too late for your child to lead a team out onto the hallowed turf at the Britannia Stadium as a matchday mascot.
Mascot packages are available for the Britannia Stadium Big Event sponsored by Listers and Q-Railing, which will see a Stoke City Legends line-up going head-to-head with the Livsmarter Allstars.
Steve Simonsen and Mark Stein have signed up to play for the Potters, while Coronation Street stars Alan Halsall, Chris Fountain and Ryan Thomas will be among the big names in the Livsmarter side … and your child could lead the teams out.
Mascot packages are available for youngsters aged between five and twelve and it promises to be a day they are unlikely to forget in a hurry.
The packages have proved popular throughout the 2012-13 campaign with children and parents alike:
"The whole mascot experience today has been unforgettable, not just for James – but also for myself and daddy!! We’ve enjoyed every second today and will be buzzing for some time. We’ll look back on today with very fond memories and will always remember James holding Peter Crouch’s hand!!" Sam Jones
"I want to say a big thank you to you and your team for Jodie’s experience as a mascot. Your team were all very friendly and you gave personal touches that made the day special for our whole family." Lyndsay Deacon
The Stoke-Livsmarter Allstars game is part of a fun-packed day for all the family which will also feature a performance by none other than JLS.
The world’s biggest boy band will treat those attending the Big Event to a selection of their greatest hits, having had five UK number ones since they emerged as runners-up on the television reality show The X-Factor.
After five years of phenomenal success, JLS recently announced they will be splitting up at the end of this year, creating a clamour for opportunities to see them perform before going their separate ways, which is certain to be the case in the Potteries.
Their appearance will round off a fantastic afternoon of entertainment, which also includes a dance competition and performances from a host of local bands.
