Your Chance To Dine With Pirates & United Legends!

Manchester LegendsI do a lot of giveaways online, as many as I can to be honest, but it’s usually tickets or games or jerseys and stuff… This time around I’ve got some PROPER prizes for you lovely, lovely people.

As you may know, later this month (The 15th to be exact) a team of Manchester United legends will be locking horns with their counterparts from Orlando Pirates at Ellis Park Stadium as they attempt to roll back the years.

Some of the players, like the legendary Paul Scholes, won’t have to roll back too many, however blokes like Viv Anderson may have to do a tincy bit more training ahead of the encounter.

The confirmed list of United players so far is:
Paul Scholes, Lee Sharpe, Louis Saha, Viv Anderson (MBE) [He used to play for Sheffield Wednesday, so he’s my favourite], Jesper Blomqvist, Ronnie Jonson, Raimond van der Gouw, David May, Quinton Fortune, Lee Martin, Clayton Blackmore, Keith Gillespie, Russell Beardmore and Ben Thornley.

Pirates’s team announcement is, I’m told, imminent…

Anyway, back to the prize I have…

Earlier this week @RickyByNight won two very special tickets to the Gala Dinner that is being hosted at Sun City a few days before the game, where he’ll get to eat and meet some of the legends involved :)

Now, while I don’t have any more tickets for that event, I do have two tickets for the official Players Dinner at the beautiful Maslow Hotel in Johannesburg*, where the lucky winner will get a three-course meal at the hotel alongside Scholes and Co on Friday evening.

Just a little sidenote… These tickets are worth R2000. EACH!

Here are the details:

Right, I suppose you want to know how you can enter??

It’s simple, all you have to do is send me the following tweet:

“Oi, @YesWeCrann. I fancy that R2000 three-course meal @TheMaslowHotel with The #ManchesterLegends and @Orlando_Pirates legends! @fctours2014″

Easy peasy, lemon squeezy. The only rules are that you must use the #ManchesterLegends hashtag, and have to be following me. Winners will be announced on Monday afternoon.


Right, all that’s left for me to say is, GOOD LUCK! And remember, the more times you enter, the better your chances of winning.


*You don’t have to be from Jozi to win, but if you’re not then you have to organise getting here yourself. I can’t organise that for you, sorry!
