Friday 27th April saw the England Legends win 8-4 over the Scotland Legends in a one-off match played at Jebel Ali Centre for Excellence where Allsopp & Allsopp rose to the occasion as official England team sponsor.
In a game that would bring nostalgia to England and Scotland fans alike, Lewis Allsopp, Carl Allsopp, Robert Kempton and Darren Murphy of Allsopp & Allsopp were the envy of every aspiring footballer playing alongside England legends like Seth Johnson, Gavin McCann, Dale Gordon, Lee Hendrie, Paul Walsh when manager Ron Atkinson called them on.
Lewis Allsopp played: “I grew up watching these guys play football, they’re England legends and to play on their team was an amazing experience.”
Allsopp & Allsopp also supported the event organisers by attending the gala dinner at the Jebel Ali Golf Resort the previous evening, with Ron Atkinson, Jason McAteer and Colin Hendry sharing stories from their colourful careers.
Friday was a fantastic family day out, the match brought expat spectators from near and far to support the teams. Event Organiser, TV Personality & ex-professional himself, Derek Whyte, was pleased to have a high profile sponsor on board for the event:
“It was fantastic publicity for the game to have Allsopp & Allsopp on board as the England sponsor, they’re very forward thinking and as the largest estate agency in Dubai everyone recognizes the brand. It was great to have the support from so many of their team who also came along to the game and the gala dinner too”.
Allsopp & Allsopp continue to support local events in both Dubai and the UK, where they are shirt sponsor for Coventry City FC for the season.
