Arsenal and England football legend Ian Wright is giving his Twitter followers a one-in-a-million chance to play at Wembley, thanks to England team sponsor Vauxhall.
Having hit one million followers, Wright promised to do something very special for his Twitter fans – he’s coming out of retirement for #OneMoreGame and his followers have the opportunity to line up beside him at the home of football.
He announced his comeback on Twitter on Tuesday and last night revealed that Vauxhall has secured Wembley as the venue for a game that will feature some of his followers and a few surprises.
Wright, whose Twitter bio reads “Twitter. Where strangers can become friends”, said: “I’ve watched all the FA Cup Finals from 1970 up to the present day, and Wembley is such a special stadium. I never dreamt that I would actually get to play and score there”.
“Because it all happened to me at Wembley, I wanted to have a game there and give my Twitter followers the chance to be a part of it.
“I can’t thank Vauxhall enough, they’ve given us the stadium – I’m feeling very emotional about the whole thing. I think it’s going to be a great day.”
The opponents have yet to be revealed, and Wright’s followers need to stay tuned to his timeline to find out how they can feature in the game. In the lead up to the game, his Twitter followers will also help to select the team name, badge and kit plus shirt giveaways and other surprises.
