Football fans can look forward to an interactive experience at the Barclays Premier League (BPL) Trophy Tour which features an inflatable replica of the top of the BPL trophy leading into four themed domes:
The Changing Room
- A chance to see if you can kick a ball harder than Obafemi Martins.
- See if you can outstretch Petr Cech’s arms.
- Try on the goalkeeping gloves of Craig Gordon and Paul Robinson.
- See how you’d fit in a wall alongside four of the BPL's biggest defenders.
- Try to run faster than Theo Walcott.
- Experience the noise of the loudest fans in the League from Stoke City.
The Centre Circle
A replica centre circle where you can get the feel of what it’s like to be at a BPL match. Here you'll experience the noise and excitement of a match day before watching a film on all the teams and captains who have lifted the Trophy since the inaugural 1992/93 season.
The Trophy Room
The main exhibit, you'll see the official BPL Trophy encased in a special cabinet. You'll also learn more about how the Trophy was made and how it's restored to pristine condition for the day it gets presented to the champions.
Becoming the Third Lion
Here's a personal memento for you to take away from the tour. Through green screen technology, you'll be able to picture yourself lifting the BPL Trophy. You can choose to have the trophy ribbons and background in the colours of any one of the 20 current BPL clubs and get to download the memento from the BPL Trophy Tour website afterwards.
In addition to the tour, Man United fans will also have the opportunity to take part in another BPL event, the Champions 19 Experience, that recreates the story of the club's 19 league title wins. You'll also see historic Man United memorabilia and see what makes them the most successful modern-era English team.
Entry is free, but through pre-registration via www.bpltrophytour.com. Each tour will last approximately 30 minutes with a maximum of 30 people per session.
