The Boston Red Sox and Fenway Sports Group launch Football at Fenway on Sunday, June 20th and Monday the 21st to promote the July 21st Celtic F.C. of Glasgow vs. Sporting C.P. of Portugal exhibition match at Fenway Park.
The Football at Fenway trophy will be revealed in a ceremony at Fenway Park on June 20 from 3-3:30 PM. The Green Monster will feature the Football at Fenway banner and the field will have soccer nets situated in the same locations as on the day of the soccer match. Red Sox executives, players and their families will play in a casual soccer kick-around on Fenway Park.
Later that day, there will be a First Kick ceremony before the Red Sox vs. Dodgers game at Fenway Park at approximately 7:45. Two children wearing Celtic and Sporting jerseys will perform a ceremonial First Kick of the inaugural Football at Fenway event from the mound.
On Monday, June 21, Red Sox and Fenway Sports Group officials will spread out throughout Massachusetts as part of the Football at Fenway Caravan to visit local restaurant and pubs that are broadcasting World Cup matches. The 2007 World Series Trophy and the inaugural Football at Fenway trophy will also be present during these visits. There will be a variety of giveaways, including event tickets, posters and other keepsakes.
These events will lead up to the public ticket on-sale at Noon on Tuesday, June 22, 2010 at www.tickets.com/footballatfenway.
