We launched this challenge on the 3rd June and it’s gone mad so far!
Only yesterday we were able to announce www.kickitout.org as an official partner and have received messages from Peter Reid, England Ladies captain Casey Stoney and ex Villa player Shaun Teale stating they would like to get involved, with Peter Reid and Shaun Teale offering to come with us on part of the journey.
We have received public support from Neville Southall, Peter Shilton and Matt Lorenzo (Sky Sports presenter) and we are working on other professionals to join the campaign. We have also had a number of current professionals tweet it for us as well which has been fantastic.
Today has seen us receive e-mails from BBC, ITV and Sky Sports News who are looking to help promote the event, as well as BBC Willtshire, Heart FM and BFBS who are all interested in supporting this event, from advertisement on shows to interviews with team members.
The website is receiving a fair amount of traffic already and sponsorship is coming in. We have some fantastic contacts and clubs are coming forward with offers of support all the time.
Our vision is that we can give radio interviews as we travel to each individual area. Some of us have never been to some of the grounds so we are looking forward to visiting the grounds. We are contacting all the clubs we are visiting to see whether we can get everyone behind this. We have received offers of programme advertising, match day collections, website features and personal appearances from people from some of the clubs which is fantastic.
