Corporate Hospitality and Football

PostPosted by The Purveyor » Thu Feb 07, 2013 10:04 pm

Some of you may know that I support Tottenham... Some of you may also know that, in a previous life, I had professional connections with the club. Well, in keeping with Forum rules and adhering to the 'Other Entertainment' part of the site, my "other entertainment" this weekend is that I have been offered two complimentary Corporate Hospitality tickets for Spurs v Newcastle in the Premier League on Saturday. Suited and booted; four-course meal; champagne reception... the works. Worth approx £400 each, I am right proper made up! :D :D :D

Which brings me on to the question I have never asked anyone on this forum: do you have a UK Association Football team you follow?

And yes, before anyone mentions it, I am fully aware that many footballers are overpaid prima donnas and that football is drowning in a sea of its own sick.

no! football and everything about it, its followers, their private lives and their wives and families lives bores me rigid. i genuinely would rather do almost anything else rather than watch listen to discuss or be involved in anything to do with it.

I like the game... and the social side with my mates. Everything else..? What you - and everyone else thinks! :roll:

If I knew liking football could get me champagne lunches I might have bothered, alas however, I never saw the appeal.
They found him wandering round Regent's Park with a cheap bottle of sherry...

And like a fool I mixed them and it strangled up my mind, and now people just get uglier and I have no sense of time...

apparently that's not just a UK problem. And I don't follow any sport, except the beach volleyball, which is almost extinct. :(

my former boss has a directors box at preston north end. every year he used to offer 2 tickets to the boxing day or new years day home match to one of the staff as a bonus, free drinks, fancy grub, comfy chairs great view etc etc, he drew my name from the hat one year and was quite taken aback when in told him i wasnt interested. he rattled off all the benefits but couldnt really answered when i said that all the free food and booze on earth wouldnt make up for being forced to watch a game of football.

The only sport I like is the shot putt.

Seriously, I go and watch my local non-league team, Belper Town. Real football - terraces, real ale, players who actually give a damn, that sort of thing.
