Play football with your idol

Ever wondered what it’d be like to play football with one of your heroes or even better score an overhead kick from a cross they delivered? Thanks to Play With A Legend that wonder goal can become a reality – well if you can actually put it away!

Play With A Legend

The Play With A Legend concept was dreamt up by former Arsenal player Perry Groves and sports journalist Josh Landy who set about creating unique sporting experiences. Fans and their heroes are brought together to enjoy a game of football to mark special occasions like birthdays, stag-parties, corporate or charity events.

Play With A Legend has an extensive network of contacts in the sporting world and will organise the entire day from the player, kit, referee, ball and pitch. Depending on preference the games range from 5-a-side to 11-a-side at local grassroots venues or professional stadiums. Once you’ve had a run about you have a chance to have a laugh with your footballing idols over a couple of pints to ask about ‘that’ goal or moment that shaped part of your childhood.

With that in mind MyLocalPitch has put together a list of football venues that would be perfect for your very own legend match. Check out some of these London sports venues for hire whether you’re after smaller format games or full-size pitches and of course there will be a bar in close proximity. New River Sport and Fitness PowerLeague – Sunbury Power League – Enfield Old Actonians Prices are dependent on the legends involved and the location, so do get in touch with Play With A Legend to organise a day that you will never forget. In the meantime, get practising that bicycle kick.
