Celebration of Excellence – This Friday!
Friends of Football have revealed an entertaining line-up of special guests for Friday’s Celebration of Excellence dinner in Auckland.
Professional comedian Andrew Clay – a football enthusiast himself – will get the night underway before MC and television commentator Andrew Dewhurst will help reveal winners in the annual football media awards.
A presentation will be made to Auckland City FC and after a sumptuous dinner, the New Zealand Footballer of the Year will be announced, with many past winners of the award present as guests.
Many of the 1982 World Cup heroes will be present to share in the sport’s tribute to All White legends Steve Sumner and Brian Turner, this year’s recipients of Friends of Football’s Medals of Excellence.
The evening, at the Auckland Grammar Old Boys’ Pavilion, Auckland, is shaping to be outstanding evening of entertainment, recognition of achievement and friendship.
Tickets are still available but should be booked quickly.
Tickets are $99 each, reduced to $84 for paid-up members of Friends of Football, or tables of eight can be booked for $680. They can be purchased from Friends of Football treasurer Barbara Cox by emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
