You Can Play Against Ireland's Euro 88 Legends 30 Years On

Greystones United are offering you the chance to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Euro 88 (and the Republic of Ireland's famous 1-0 victory over England in Stuttgart) in a unique way.

On February 24th we will see the Republic of Ireland heroes of Euro 88 tog out 30 years after the famous tournament. Greystones United AFC will take on a Republic of Ireland Legends 11 selection featuring such names as Ronnie Whelan, Ray Houghton and Tony Cascarino and the best part of it is not only can you be there to watch and support, but you can PLAY!

If you or your mates have ever thought you'd like to test your skills against any of Ireland's old football elite or maybe one of the lads has criticised your team during their punditry and you'd like to get your own back by nutmegging one of them in public, now is your chance.

The fundraiser for the Co. Wicklow club offers you this unique, once in a lifetime opportunity for €325, but if you'd like to be there in attendance to witness the fun and support the club you can do that too with tickets at just €10 for adults and €6 for schoolchildren.

Greystones United AFC will also host a Gala dinner to round off the day with the Ireland legends that will also feature a special questions and answers session with Ireland's Ronnie Whelan and Ray Houghton on the night. Tickets to the Gala dinner, if you wish to attend are priced at €60.
