This once in a lifetime experience is the stuff that childhood dreams were made of. Remember the good old days when you and the stag used to play footy with the boys, use your school jumpers as goalposts and pretend you were playing with Chris Kamara, before burying the ball in the back of the net and performing your new celebratory dance move as the crowd went wild? Well, lads, we are here to make this dream a reality and give the groom-to-be an unforgettable last night of freedom (seriously, he’ll love you forever).
We’ve teamed up with Play with a Legend and this ultimate stag experience will see you and the boys under the bright lights of the ground, playing on the pitch with the footballing hero of your choice, from just £69 per person. And if that isn’t enough, the football legend will then join you for up to an hour after the game, so you can relax with a leisurely pint (or two), catch up with him about the glory days and live the dream (your 10 year old self would be so jealous right now).
This epic activity is the brainchild of ex-Arsenal winger, Perry Groves (who is also one of the footballers available for the kickabout), and sports journalist - Josh Landy.
Perry Groves, the legend behind the Legends, said ‘We're delighted to partner with such an established name in the stag world like Last Night of Freedom. We are really excited to give their customers high quality events, allowing fans to have the opportunity to play alongside and drink with their heroes. I still love playing and so do all the former players we run events with, so it's great to meet the fans, have a kick around and chat about the good old days.‘

Just some of the players available for this activity to end all activities, include: Neil ‘Razor’ Ruddock, Gary McAllister, Ray Parlour, Paul Merson and Newcastle’s former players – Dietmar Hamann, Rob Lee, Ruel Fox, John Beresford and Steve Howey.
Rob Lee, one of our Toon legends, said 'Playing with fans is great! I still love to play football and, yes I am still a little competitive, but enjoy having a bit of banter and fun whilst playing now.'
If you fancy playing with a legend anywhere within the UK, and even if your hero isn't on the list, all you need to do is give us a call at 0191 499 8750 and we'll sort it out. See you on the pitch, lads.
