Premier League Trophy to visit Blundell Park on Saturday

We are excited to announce that the Premier League Trophy will be at Blundell Park on Saturday as part of a tour to celebrate the competition’s 30th anniversary.

The trophy was due to be with us for the game against Crewe Alexandra a fortnight ago but was postponed after the passing of Her late Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.

The Premier League have embarked on a whistle-stop tour around the country, visiting club’s where their funding has made a difference to the local community. Grimsby Town Sports & Education Trust received a grant of £19,000 from the Premier League to create the Family Fanzone which has earned the club national attention for its improved matchday experience.

Fans who would like to catch a glimpse of the iconic trophy can come to the ground between midday and 2.15pm on Saturday. The trophy will be set up between the Lower and the Fanzone and supporters will be asked to queue outside the Constitutional Corner gate before having the chance to have their photograph taken with English football’s top prize. After fans have had their photo opportunity, they will be asked to leave the open corner and enter the ground through their usual turnstiles from 1:30pm.

The trophy will also be in the Fanzone at half-time and in McMenemy’s for wristband holders from the final whistle until 6pm.

In addition, shortly before kick-off, we will also be announcing the person who we have chosen as Grimsby Town Sports and Education Trust’s ‘Community Captain’ in recognition of their outstanding contribution to the Club and the local community. The Community Captain is an accolade being given to more than 100 members of the public as part of the Premier League’s 30th-anniversary celebrations.

We look forward to seeing lots of photos online of supporters engaging with the Premier League Trophy during its first visit to Blundell Park. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #PL30atBP
