Sligo Rovers fans have a chance to travel to FAI Ford Cup Final in style.
Winner to also select a child to deliver the match ball at the final
Some lucky Sligo Rovers supporters will not have to worry about the burden
of making the 250 mile round trip to the Tallaght Stadium for their
club's FAI Ford Cup Final clash against Sporting Fingal on Sunday, November 22nd, as Ford, proud sponsors of the FAI Cup, will provide transport to selected winners as part of their 'Focus on the footy' campaign.
For every FAI Ford Cup round this year, Ford has come to the rescue of
fans around the country, eager to get along to support their club, by
transporting them there in style.
A Cobh Ramblers family were the selected winners for Round Two, with the
family transported to and from their game with local rivals Carrigaline.
50 Ballymun United supporters were the lucky Third Round winners, as Ford
provided a bus to transport the Dublin side's fans to Derry for their 300
mile round trip. Wexford Youths supporters were the lucky winners in Round
3; Dundalk fans were the winners in Round 4; a Waterford United family got
to travel to the RSC in style for the Quarter Final with St Pats, and Bray
fans were chauffeured to the Morton Stadium for their away clash with
Sporting Fingal for last month's semi final.
Ford are coming to the rescue once again, just in time for any Sligo
Rovers fans who would like to bring either their family, friends or even a
bus load of supporters to the eagerly anticipated final in comfort for the
clash with Sporting Fingal.
All fans have to do is email their name and address to
fordfootball [at] WHPR.ie and whether they want to travel with their family,
group of friends or bus load of supporters, and a reason why they should
be brought to the game by Ford.
Ford will look after the transport to and from the game by supplying a
Ford vehicle and chauffeur, and make sure every fan is fed and watered
with a pre match meal. There will be goody bags for every child, and one
child on the trip will have the unique opportunity to deliver the match
ball onto the pitch before kick-off.
"The initiative has worked extremely well for the FAI Ford Cup so far
this year" said Ford Ireland Managing Director Eddie Murphy. "For the
final, getting to Dublin could be quite difficult for some fans in Sligo, so this
way at least fans can stop worrying about the logistics and just
concentrate on the game itself."
So whether you want to focus on your friends and get a gang to an away
game, or focus on your family for your team's big home tie, just let Ford take care of all the logistics, so you can just focus on the Football.
Life without Rovers, it makes no sense...it's a heartache...nothing but a fools game. S.R.F.C.
