Micah Richards hopes to add Olympic Gold to his long list of honours in just a few weeks’ time – but you could see him in action with Team GB’s football squad before the kick-off to London 2012.
Middlesbrough’s Riverside Stadium will host the only warm-up games that Team GB’s men’s and women’s football teams will play ahead of the forthcoming Olympics.
For the price of one ticket, fans can see the men’s team play Brazil’s Olympic side and the women’s line-up take on Sweden as the Riverside hosts a unique double-header on Friday July 20.
As one of three over-aged players included in the under-23 squad, City star Micah Richards is one of the big names in a men’s line-up brimming with talent. The squad also includes former City stars Craig Bellamy and Daniel Sturridge.
The July 20 feast of football starts at 4pm when Hope Powell’s women take on Sweden, before continuing at 7.45 when the men play Brazil.
This will be Brazil's last major tournament outing before they host the World Cup in 2014, so the squad is brimming with talent, including Neymar, Hulk and Alexandre Pato.
The remaining tickets are priced from £30 adults, £20 over-65s and £15 under-16s. Tickets are available online at www.mfc.co.uk or by calling 0844 499 1234. They are also available in person from the Middlesbrough FC ticket office at the Riverside Stadium.
There is a limit of six tickets per transaction. Tickets purchased online or by phone are subject to a booking fee of £1.50 per ticket.
Hospitality packages are also available from £79 +VAT per person by calling calling 01642 757657 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
