The Dugout incorporates 1080p HD screens throughout, with a 70” hero screen positioned in the centre of the trailer. The Dugout can facilitate 10 x players at a time and also features our very own MC to commentate on the big matches of the day.

There will also be action on the fan zone big screen, giveaways, a DJ, match t shirts, competitions and plenty of fun as the crowd build up through to kick-off. 

There will be a competition on the fastest shot machine that will see four winners go through to take part in a penalty competition on the pitch during half time against Pete The Eagle.
