Chevrolet Pitch Day 2013
The Chevrolet Pitch Day 2013 took place at Old Trafford on 27th May. Chevrolet teamed up with FourFourTwo magazine to give three lucky readers’ teams the chance to take part in a mini tournament at the Theatre of Dreams.
Arriving at the Trafford Suite on the morning of the tournament, the teams were welcomed by the Voice of Old Trafford, Alan Keegan, who explained to them just what was in store. Club legends Andrew Cole and Bryan Robson, who would be coaching two teams each, were then welcomed to the stage to make the draw for the first round.
Once the tournament was drawn, two semi-finals, a third/fourth place play off and then the all-important final, the guests were taken down to the dressing rooms. Whilst the players were changing they were given a private team talk from their respective Ambassador coach before lining up in the tunnel. Nerves were frayed as they eyed up the competition before walking out onto the famous Old Trafford pitch.
The first game was a stalemate, with Windle Labour going on to beat Jubilee Rangers on penalties. FourFourTwo XI then beat Cal’s XI in the other semi which set us up for the finals. Jubilee Rangers restored some pride, beating Cal’s XI to finish third before Windle Labour put in a great performance to take the trophy.
After the matches the guests were invited back up to the Trafford Suite for lunch along with a Q&A session with the legends and the trophy presentation.
