In partnership with Enjoy Tees Valley, we’re planning to showcase why we’re so proud of our region at what will be a huge game in the Sky Bet Championship promotion race.

In recent months, we’ve been able to toast the news that Take That will become the Riverside’s first major concert, BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend is set to hit Boro with some of the biggest names in the music business, and the Rugby League World Cup, Jess Glynne and the Great North City Games are all coming to our area. 

As flagbearers for the region, we’re encouraging fans to join us in a celebration of our area at our Enjoy Tees Valley fixture.

To mark the occasion, we will be re-naming the stadium for this game and will be offering fans the chance to vote for their choice.

The stadium will be decked out in red and white, there will be 25,000 flags and local band Cattle and Cane will be playing their Teesside-inspired song Infant Hercules on the pitch ahead of the game.

There will be a Tees Valley-themed FanZone featuring the Rugby League World Cup trophy on display.

We will also have details of a very special fund-raiser for Teesside Hospice which will take place at the game, and offers us the chance to make a real difference to peoples lives.

Boro take on Norwich City on Saturday March 30 (5.30pm).

Fans can purchase tickets for the game via mfc.co.uk or by telephoning the Ticket Office on 01642 929421.
