Jon Stump, Finance Director at Mick George said:  “We are always looking for the chance to use our sponsorship partnership with the club to benefit supporters. The recent FIFA16 competition was well received so we were keen to extend the offering to the next level.

Stump continued: ‘’We’ve put a lot of thought into the various challenges which will test a different range of skills and techniques. The talk around the dressing room is that Liam is not taking any chances with this and is putting the extra hours in to make sure he is ready for the competition.”
