Leisuretime honoured to be travel partner of charity football match

Leisuretime, one of the UK’s premier providers of European coach trips, were proud to be an official travel partner for the Pontyridd Town FC vs TalksportAllStars charity football match on Wednesday 11 May. Bringing together a sensational 18-man squad of ex-football professionals and celebrities in order to take on ‘The Dragons’, the match was designed to raise as much money as possible for the Welsh side.

Attracting a 1600 strong crowd, the match was a sell-out. Played at Ynysangharad Park, the home of Welsh League Third Division team, Pontypridd Town FC, the event was a true highlight on their calendar. Taking on the TalksportAllstars, the team was made up of household names and sporting legends. Ex-Liverpool football club stars, Danny Murphy and DietmarHamann were star attractions, as was broadcaster Colin Murray and former rugby player Mike Tindall. Sponsored by the south Wales based travel specialists, they were also on hand to cheer the local team on.

George Johnson, Managing Director, said, “The football match was a really great event, bringing together stars from around the country. Capturing the imagination of everyone involved, the match was great fun for spectators and players alike – and not one any of the players will forget in a hurry. And what’s more, it was all for a good cause.”

With all the proceeds going straight to Pontyridd Town FC, Leisuretime provided the coach which transported the players to the ground. Helping to support grass roots football in Wales by creating an event to highlight clubs working hard to improve, the firm was also a main sponsor. Advertising the match to its customers and the local area, Leisuretime provided a valuable series of advertising campaigns, both leading up to the event and on the day itself.

Battling for the Talksport Trophy, Pontypridd Town AFC came out victorious, with a 3-1 win.
