HOW IT WORKS?
The challenge is to cycle to 11 iconic football stadiums across London in one day, covering around 60 miles of London’s roads, in teams of up to 5 cyclists. At each stadium, teams will need to tweet a photograph of their team taken outside the stadium at a specific location. Each team will aim to raise a minimum of £500 (£100 per rider) to support FBB’s work with young people.
FBB wants to mobilise supporters and football fans from across London to come together and use the power of football to transform young people’s lives. By taking on this challenge and fundraising to support FBB, you will be contributing towards a better future for young people in London. It costs £400 per year to enroll a young person on our FBB Schools Programme – a full team participating in the FBB Stadium Challenge will directly cover this cost.
WHEN IS IT?
The FBB stadium challenge will commence at Trafalgar square, with riders leaving in waves from 8am on the 10th of September 2017.
WHAT STADIUMS ARE ON THE ROUTE?
We have chosen a selection of London’s stadiums from the Premier League (Chelsea, Arsenal, Crystal Palace, West Ham, Tottenham), Football League (Millwall, Fulham, QPR, Charlton) to non-league (Dulwich Hamlet & Clapton FC) to represent the full breadth of this city’s footballing greatness! Your team’s route? It is up to you to decide your own route, although we are happy to advise.
WHAT PRIZES CAN TEAMS WIN?
We want to ensure all participants have a safe and enjoyable experience by riding the challenge responsibly so it will not be a race to see who finishes fastest. We believe the distance in itself is challenge enough without adding a racing element. There will be special prizes for:
- Best Team Photo
- Best Team Video
- Highest Fundraising Team
- Team that completes most challenges along the route!
