Result! – Fischer competition winners grace King Power stadium.

We might have mentioned it before, but the Fischer group is proud to be a sponsor of 2016 Premier League Champions, Leicester City. As fans of the mighty Foxes, there is rarely a dull moment. From near certain relegation, to the glory of winning the league. Reaching the Champions League quarterfinal, to sacking the most popular and successful manager in the Club’s history. And once again flirting with relegation before finally re-capturing winning form and staying-up. Phew!

Safe to say- the last few years have been rather hectic.

As part of our sponsorship, the kind folks down at LCFC invited us to play a match at King Power stadium. We obviously jumped at the chance and thought it would be a great idea to play against some of our customers. Cries of competition time echoed around the office, and thus a competition was born.

Our social media pages were buzzing as word spread. Messages began flooding in from budding Jamie Vardy’s and Riyad Mahrez’s desperate to emulate their heroes on the hallowed turf.

Reaction from the eventual winners ranged from dis-belief: ‘Is this a wind-up mate?’ -to language not fit for a family blog. One chap burst into tears of joy, while one winner drove from Southampton for the big match.

The day dawned hot and sunny as the teams lined up in the tunnel for kick-off. Players were treated to full use of the changing rooms and the all the facilities the professionals enjoy. Friends and family of the competition winners had packed the stands and made their support clear as the teams made their way to the centre circle.

It’s fair to say the match itself wasn’t one for the neutrals, but after a hard-fought yet friendly 90 minutes, the final score was…

With hand’s shook and congratulations exchanged the weary teams returned to the dressing rooms happy to have graced the home of the Premier League Champions. It was certainly a night to be remembered.
