Wembley start for fundraisers in ‘92plus1’ Challenge

A group of fundraisers will embark on a mentally challenging journey as they aim to travel to all Premier and Football League grounds in just 92 hours.

The fundraisers taking part in the ‘92plus1’ campaign in aid of the Help for Heroes charity from October 11-15, will progress through Essex and east London as part of their challenge.

The journey will begin at Wembley, immediately after England’s home world cup qualifier over Montenegro, and will take them to 92 English league side stadiums on a 2,500-mile trip back round to Wembley again.

The goal is to return to Wembley in time for the kick-off of England’s match against Poland on the Tuesday.

The car of four people will leave Wembley and drive in two-to-three-hour shifts to each ground, taking pictures of themselves at each stadium then driving to the next one.

Throughout the journey the vehicle will only stop for refuelling, rest breaks and stadium stops.

In return, they’re hoping for sponsorship from people and businesses to reach their target of £10,000.

A special YouTube channel has been set-up to record the event with video footage and diary video blogs.

A Twitter account has also been created @92plus1, which will be tweeting updates.

To find out more about the participants, their route and how to donate, visit www.92plus1.co.uk.
