We have an exciting new competition for all football fans! Sir Bobby called our fund, The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, his last and greatest team. Now, you can support our work in finding more effective ways to detect and treat cancer by trying to pick his best team ON the pitch.
What is the competition?
Just £5 to enter, this fun competition could win you fantastic prizes from the Great Run Company, including a VIP 2023 Great North Run experience – with a helicopter ride to the finish line!
Running the GNR this year is Sir Bobby’s Team – made up of experienced sports journalists. They have put their heads together to come up with Sir Bobby’s ultimate starting line-up from players he led over time. To win this competition, all you have to do is guess their line up, using a 3 4 3 formation and a shortlist of players.
This shortlist has the blessing of Sir Bobby’s family who know that, with such limited numbers and such a wealth of talent to choose from, some extremely difficult decisions were taken in selecting players.
How to enter
Test your football knowledge and select your own Sir Bobby Team – goalkeeper, three defenders, four midfielders and three up front – and help support the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation in the process.Enter here
⚽️ Thanks to the Great North Run, first prize is an incredible 2023 VIP Great North Run experience for two including breakfast at the Hilton, meet and greet with notable runners at the start and winners at the finish, hospitality and transport, and a VIP helicopter ride from the start to the finish (full details in T&Cs).
⚽️ Our 20 runners up will also receive a very special prize thanks to the Great North Run – a superb technical t-shirt, production limited to just 20, the same design as worn by Sir Bobby’s Team on the run.
All entrants who accurately guess the chosen 11 players chosen by our football experts will be entered into a prize draw and a winner chosen at random.
If nobody selects all 11 players correctly, the entrants who accurately guessed 10 players will be entered into a prize draw, this process will continue until a winner and then 20 runner ups are chosen. The competition closes at 11.59pm on Monday 12 September.
Part of Newcastle Hospitals Charity, our Foundation funds a range of cutting-edge cancer treatments and innovative cancer support services including the clinical trials of new drugs.
