At the Football Association’s official training facility on Tuesday (27 May), attendees had the chance to enter the ‘#LionsDen’ and take part in a series of activities, organised by agency TRO.

Vauxhall’s partner and sports radio station TalkSport broadcast live from the event with radio presenter Colin Murray.

Competition winners had the opportunity to watch the team train and meet Vauxhall and England football legends such as John Barnes and Matt Le Tissier, who were on hand to sign autographs and take part in a live Q&A, as well as have photos taken with the fans.

Football-themed activities that took place throughout the day included beat the goalie competitions, mini inflatable five-a-side football games, the opportunity to play a Fifa football video game on Xbox consoles and green screens where fans could have a picture printed of them holding the World Cup at Wembley and being a part of the England line-up.

Face painters and table tennis challenges with a Top Gear-style leader board were also arranged for the competition winners event.
