Boro take fans to La Manga

19 May 2010 11:07
MIDDLESBROUGH will be one of a handful of British teams in training next week and two of the club's fans could fly out to La Manga to warm up with the players, then sit back and watch them being put through their paces.

One lucky fan, and their guest, will fly from Newcastle Airport on Tuesday, May 25, and enjoy a two-night stay in four-star accommodation within walking distance of Boro's training base. They will then return to Newcastle on the evening of Thursday, May 27.

All meals during the stay in Spain will be paid for, along with return taxis from Murcia Airport to the accommodation in La Manga. The winner and their guest will be hosted by an MFC staff member during their stay.

Boro communications manager Dave Allan said: Our fans have given us super support throughout some difficult times and their backing will be ever more vital as we look to win promotion next season.

This unique competition is designed to show our fans how important they are to us and to let two of them see first hand the lengths Gordon Strachan is going to in a bid to ensure the players are fully prepared for the season ahead.

To enter the competition, fans need to answer a question on www.mfc.co.uk. The deadline for entries is 5pm tomorrow.
