Bring on the match ball

18 August 2016

Ever dreamed of carrying the match ball on to the pitch at The City Ground?

Well your dreams could become reality thanks to our principal partners at 888sport, who we’ve teamed up with to launch a fantastic matchday competition!

And that’s not all! Get chosen as our Fan888 for the day and you and three mates will not only get match tickets, you’ll also get to keep a signed ball, have your name printed at the end of the squad list in the matchday programme or teamsheet and much more!

We’ll choose a new Fan888 ahead of every home match this season starting with our game against Leeds United on Saturday 27 August.

For your chance to win, simply tweet a selfie of you or someone you know in a new Forest adidas shirt, using #Fan888NFFC, follow 888sport and we’ll pick the winner at random.

The ways of entering will change throughout the season so make sure you follow 888sport and Forest on social media to stay up to date!

Full details of the prize are:

- A City Ground stadium tour 
- A shirt with No 888 and name printed on the back presented by the head coach or kit man
- Walk-out on to the pitch carrying the match ball and place it on  the 888th Plinth
- Your name will be read out along with team line-up announcement
- Your photo will be taken pitchside
- You will be given four stand tickets to the game for you and your mates
- You will also be given a ball signed by the first-team squad
- And your name will be printed in the matchday programme and/or teamsheet
