IT’S on an awayday not to be missed and we’ve got five pairs of the hottest tickets in town to see the Sky TV boys in action.

Previously billed as “Soccer Anyday”, Sky Sports is to officially back the live show and as such the tour has been renamed “Gillette Soccer Saturday Live”.

Plans for the show are hotting up. These include the world’s biggest ever head to head football quiz, exciting and electrifying Q & A sessions, live and interactive games and activities, and hilarious panel debates. Footie fans can join Jeff, Kammy, Charlie, Thommo, Merse and Le Tiss as they reveal behind the scenes exploits and entertain with football stories past and present. Audience members can also ask the panel anything they like from the world of football. Very different from the TV show, Gillette Soccer Saturday Live is a unique opportunity for fans to become directly involved in the arena show action!

After entertaining millions of football fans every week, Sky Sport’s Gillette Soccer Saturday celebrates a phenomenal 10 years on air.

And to celebrate in style Jeff Stelling and the Soccer Saturday Sky Sports gang are hitting the road for the first time ever. The UK’s popular football show will embark upon a 5-date UK arena tour across Bournemouth, London, Liverpool, Newcastle and Birmingham from the 19th March to the 8th June 2012.

Saturday afternoons with Jeff Stelling, Matthew LeTissier, Paul Merson, Phil Thompson, Charlie Nicholas and Chris Kamara on Sky Sports have become unmissable for football fans across the UK. The live tour has been developed to meet fans insatiable desire to get up close and personal with Jeff and the team.

The event is quite simply the best night out any football fan can have. In a hilarious and engaging roller-coaster ride of an evening, the panel will reveal personal anecdotes from their footballing and TV careers, from the ultimate highs to the crucifying lows and everything in between.

There will also be exciting and electrifying live and interactive rounds where the audience can really engage with the panellists. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in the world’s biggest ever football quiz anchored by Jeff Stelling. Merse and Le Tiss and Thomson and Nicholas will split the audience into two teams and battle it out to see who knows the most about football. There will also be buzzer rounds with audience members invited on stage to help the pundits. Fans can also ask the panel anything they like about the football world including current team exploits.
