The famed Jules Rimet trophy, better known to many of us as the 1966 World Cup trophy, has been on a whirlwind tour of Manchester this week and we can confirm its next stop is the Etihad Stadium!
The trophy has been making its way around the city in celebration of Pickles, the dog who found the 1966 trophy after it had been stolen from an exhibition in London.
To share Pickles’ amazing story, while also showing support for our local Manchester Dogs’ Home, the National Football Museum have been ‘hiding’ the trophy in various locations all week long and now it’s your turn to find it at the Etihad Stadium.
Today, 26 March, the Jules Rimet trophy will be making its final stop at the home of the Blues before returning to the National Football Museum.
As part of its rare visit, we’re giving fans a chance to win a special family matchday package for Manchester City’s next Premier League home fixture v West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, 9 April, kick-off 12:30PM.
- Four matchday tickets for MCFC v WBA
- Four free passes for a pre-match stadium and club tour on Saturday, 9 April giving you a 60 minute look behind the scenes into what happens on a matchday at the Etihad Stadium
How do you win?
Come to the Etihad Stadium and locate the trophy between 11:00AM and 2:00PM today.
- Hint: it’s an iconic pre-match venue where both the Moonies and players can be spotted prior to kick-off.
- Get creative and snap your best shot with the trophy tweeting it to @MCFC and @FootballMuseum using #ThankYouPickles (The more the merrier, so feel free to get your favourite pet involved!)*
- Stay tuned to @MCFC, we’ll be tweeting the winner on Tuesday, 29 March and it could be you.
