Peterborough United will launch their brand new home kit on Sunday 5th July at a special event at Serpentine Green, Hampton.
The football club will be working closely with shirt sponsors Mick George to create a memorable two hours with plenty of entertainment for all of the family as well as the big reveal of the 2015-2016 Peterborough United home strip.
We will be joined on the day by Mr Posh, Peter Burrow, Mick the Skip, the Posh management team and representatives from the playing squad who will be modelling the new kit alongside a player from the under 9s, 12s and 15s Academy sides.
Mick George has also teamed up with the Peterborough Telegraph for a youngster to join the launch as a model with further details in forthcoming issues of the paper.
The entertainment gets underway at 11am at Serpentine Green (outside Boots) with the Mick George cheerleaders and there will be a question and answer session with first team manager Dave Robertson and assistant Grant McCann.
Our friends at GAME will be running a FIFA competition, there will be a speed kick cage in attendance and representatives from sponsors Princebuild and Vend Snax will be present. Young fans will also get the chance to win the new home strip in the Mick George ‘skip challenge’.
The entertainment will finish at 1pm with updates throughout the day on the club’s Twitter page @theposhdotcom and on the club’s website and YouTube channel.
Posh commercial manager Alex Harris said: ”We are looking forward to revealing our new kit to our supporters and are pleased that we are able to put on this event in partnership with our shirt sponsors Mick George. We believe this will be a nice curtain-raiser to the pre-season programme and hope to see many fans, young and old, at the launch.”
Jon Stump, Finance Director at Mick George said: “We’re really excited about the launch of the new Peterborough United home kit at Serpentine Green and we’ve got lots of things planned for fans during the day. Mick the Skip will be making a special appearance, the Mick George cheerleaders will be performing throughout the day and young fans will have the chance to win prizes on our mini sized ‘skip challenge.’
“Our involvement at the club has extended this season as we are now the official sponsors of the Peterborough United FC training ground. To celebrate the launch of the Mick George Training Academy we are giving four lucky fans the chance to go behind the scenes and have a tour of the facilities as well as watch the first team train.
"All you have to do to enter this competition is bring a bag of unwanted clothes to the Sue Ryder Donation Station, located in front of boots on Sunday 5th July. The staff and volunteers at Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall provide incredible care to people during the most difficult times and one bag of clothes can make a big difference.”
