This May, Wembley Stadium, will host it’s first ever film premiere with “Bobby”.
As part of the 50th anniversary of England’s World Cup win in 1966, Wembley Stadium will host the world premiere of Bobby, the story of triumph and tragedy behind Britain’s greatest Football Hero, Bobby Moore. The film will feature spectacular footage including film from the ’66 World Cup that’s never been seen, the golden era of English football is vividly brought to the big screen like never before.
To screen the film in the stadium, a special screen will be installed on the pitch in front of the Royal Box and seats will go on sale to the general public in the blocks around the players’ tunnel. And if you’re lucky enough to get an exclusive invite, you will be seated in front of the hospitality suite named after Bobby Moore – approximately at the point where Bobby received the trophy from Her Majesty The Queen on 30th July 1966.
“It is totally fitting that Wembley should host the premiere,” says FA chairman Greg Dyke. “The film is a poignant tribute to one of this country’s true football greats. Our job now is to honour Bobby’s memory by doing everything we can to put a platform in place for future England success.”
Bobby Wembley Screening will take place on Monday 23rd May 2016 at 8.15pm and doors will open at 7.15pm.
Tickets will cost £15 and you can book here.
Bobby will be available on Blu-ray, DVD & Digital Download 30 May 2016; pre-order now from Amazon.
