Extra Time To win a Boro Player

A brilliant opportunity for any local charity - please spread the word to anyone involved in local charity fundraising.


Local charities and worthy causes are being given extra time to ‘win a Middlesbrough player’ and £2,000 through an exciting new community scheme.

Part of the Premier League’s flagship good causes programme, ‘Places for Players’ will see three Boro stars make personal appearances to help charities and community schemes raise awareness of their projects and create fundraising opportunities.

All 20 Premier League clubs are making three players available for charitable causes to ‘bid’ for this September.

To celebrate Boro’s community work throughout the year every year, any charity or community programme based in the UK can apply for a Boro star to highlight their work between Saturday September 15 and Saturday October 6.

Three winning applications will not only get a member of Gareth Southgate’s team for an afternoon but will also receive £2,000.

A further 20 runners-up will receive £2,000 for their charity or good cause.

Middlesbrough FC Communications Manager Dave Allan said: “This is a fabulous opportunity for local causes, community groups and charities to win one of our star players to boost their scheme.

“The winners will be those coming up with the most original ideas of how to utilise a Boro player – but, with 20 runners-up receiving £2,000 each, even those that don’t win one of the main prizes will be celebrating.”

But the message is clear – don’t delay. The deadline for applications, which had been today (Friday June 22) has now been extended until 5pm next Friday (June 29).

Application forms are available from,, by calling the Premier League Creating Chances Press Office on 0207 908 6592 or by emailing
