Football fever heading to Brighton this weekend ahead of big summer in the Lioness camp


Families, sports clubs and football fans are invited to British Airways i360 terrace, Brighton Seafront this Saturday (28th May) to show their support for the England Women’s Senior Football Team, ahead of this summer’s tournament.

Thanks to Continental Tyres, Official Partner of the England Lionesses, those who go along can get tournament-ready with a free fan pack complete with Lioness mask and matchday clappers.

There will also be chances to win exclusive prizes in an exciting target shoot challenge, a fast-feet challenge and more.

The action-packed event is on from 10am until 4pm and marks the next stop of Continental Tyres’ ‘Grip the Nation’ tour – set to travel the country for the next two months and ignite football fever in England’s key tournament cities.

The Lionesses will contend their final group stage match against Norway at Brighton and Hove Community Stadium on 11th July and Saturday’s event will provide the perfect opportunity for fans to get into the football spirit.

Pete Robb, Marketing Director at Continental Tyres, said: “The Lionesses are heading into summer in fantastic shape, and we want people right across the country to rally behind them.

“There’s no better feeling than when football fever grips the nation – and moments like this also play an important part in inspiring young people to play the game.

“Saturday’s event promises to be great fun and we’re looking forward to a big turnout. Brighton – come and show your pride!”

A recent survey conducted by Continental Tyres found that watching a professional female athlete or team in action has inspired more than half of girls to take up a new sport.
