World Cup roadshow in Sunderland

Have your say

FOOTBALL fans can meet the mascot for the World Cup when a roadshow comes to Sunderland.

Continental Tyres, one of the sponsors of the football tournament, is on tour across the UK and will be at the Stadium of Light today.

People will be able to meet Fuleco, the Brazil 2014 mascot, send the England team a message via a photo booth and test their goal-scoring skills to win official merchandise.

Peter Robb, a spokesman for Continental, said: “With Brazil far away and tough for most fans to get to, we’re delighted to be able to bring World Cup fever to Sunderland.”
