Going To Blackpool Away?

Wonga have got in touch to offer a RoM reader who is going to Blackpool away the opportunity to take part in the half-time fun. The club is looking for a brave red to take on a Blackpool supporter in the half-time Wonga Cash Dash, when the teams meet at Bloomfield Road on Saturday 4th December.

The Cash Dash is a race in two giant zorb balls, across the Bloomfield turf, between one home and one away supporter. The winner will be the fan who crosses the finishing line first, and will earn themselves £250. There will also a £250 donation to Blackpool’s Trinity Hospice.

If you’re interested in representing United, get in touch with Wonga.

And if you don’t know what a “zorb ball” is, here is Blackpool’s Ian Holloway demonstrating!

    Jaysus I would love the spondooliks, a neat little Xmas gift.
    I bet its Holloway in the Zorb ever time, he will be more practiced and faster, and he does roll with the flow and sometime speak balls.
    Who ever wins, do the decent thing and donate the prize money to a charitable cause……..Me . lol.
    I am tied up on the 4th, not literally! the cuffs are off.
    It would be great to see the lights in December, and stay in one of the many high class bed and snout near the north pier.

    Can we sneak Chicharito into the away Zorb, hopefully he won’t be incorrectly pulled back for offside.
