Ride Football To Amsterdam 2016

13 January 2016

Last Chance To Sign Up and Represent The Seasiders

Join us and The Football League’s Official Charity Partner, Prostate Cancer UK, alongside former England internationals Terry Butcher and Viv Anderson on a once in a lifetime pedal-powered pilgrimage to Amsterdam, climaxing in a truly unforgettable night out in Dam Square.

You and your mates can join Blackpool today for the Football to Amsterdam 2016, a two-day cycle challenge where you can raise cash to beat prostate cancer.

There’s going to be windmills, there’s going to be Dutch beer, and there’s going to be a big celebration in de Dam. All you need to do is swap your football boots for a cycling jersey and pedal 145 miles to get there… easy right?

Last year the ride sold out and places are going fast. Don’t miss out: Book your place today.

Men United’s star signing, Terry Butcher, donned his Ipswich cycling jersey last year and enjoyed it so much he’s coming back for round two:

“It was harder than marking Maradona, I told reporters at the time. It was tough. 145 miles.  But with over 250 riders from across the football world the camaraderie was amazing and my quads have finally recovered enough for me to look forward to doing it all again next year.” – Terry Butcher, Men United.

The 2016 dates are 3-5 June, and there’ll be two start points – one from Barnsley FC, crossing the North Sea via Hull, and the other from the Olympic Park in London catching the Harwich ferry. Once we make it to the other side, we’ll all converge in Amsterdam on the Saturday night for a big party.

Registration fee is £149. Each rider will pledge to raise a minimum of £1,000 in sponsorship to help fight back against a disease that affects one in eight men in the UK.
