Festive match of the day sees England legend Alan Shearer come to football-focused Leicester

Christmas will be coming early this year for Leicester’s football fans, when the city plays host to one of the biggest names to pull on an England shirt. 

An Evening with Alan Shearer, hosted by K Kong Events, will offer guests the unique opportunity to meet the England legend and hear him talk candidly about his career, which saw him score a record 260 goals in the Premier League, become the world’s most expensive footballer when he joined Newcastle for £15million in 1996, and captain his country 34 times. 

The event, at Leicester’s King Power Stadium on Thursday 17th December will see Shearer, who is listed as one of FIFA’s 100 greatest living footballers, take part in an extensive question and answer session where he will treat guests to an insight into life in the England camp, behind the scenes of top flight football and his views on the current game. 

Shearer says: “It’s a real privilege to come to such a big footballing city as Leicester – as a player you always looked forward to games here. 

“I’m very much looking forward to meeting fellow football fans and sharing my experiences of the game, both on and off the pitch.”
