Two competition winners, along with a plus one, will have the chance to play 5G Foosball after the tournament with the football legends and celebrities, including England manager Gareth Southgate, songwriter Chelcee Grimes, and rugby player and TV personality James Haskell, along with others, at the UK’s most iconic football ground, Wembley Stadium, later this month, as well as enjoy the entertainment as they slide, power kick and bounce to the top of the tournament.

Launching Thursday 15th April, the competition will be available for all EE customers across the UK and will operate as a ‘like and comment ⚽ to win’ via EE’s Twitter. Whether they emerge victorious or admit defeat, the lucky line-up of competition winners will take home an epic Samsung Galaxy S21 5G as well as enjoying a meet and greet with the full line-up of stars.
