The annual play-on-the-pitch big match at Forest

Thursday, 18th April 2019

It’s bigger than the Champions League Final and you’re invited…

John Pye Auctions request the pleasure of your company at our annual John Pye Clients and Associates Sport Networking Day, which takes place at Nottingham Forest’s City Ground on Tuesday May 7th, 2018,

After player registration at main reception, you’ll take your place in the Forest dressing rooms to get changed into John Pye full kits, all supplied.

Once you’re kitted up and your boots are on, you’ll step out from the John Pye Auctions Forest tunnel to take to the hallowed turf – this will be your playing surface exclusively for 90 minutes as we hold a ‘veterans’ style game, with an anticipated squad of 15 per squad, with roll-off, roll-on subs, overseen by two John Pye Auctions Managers, a qualified FA referee and two linesmen.


The John Pye Auctions Sports Day itinerary for Friday May 4th will be as follows:

15:00 – Meet at the City Ground, Nottingham (NG2 5FJ) for player registration and change into kits
15:30: Pre-match warm up (no one’s getting any younger), pre-match photographs and final manager’s pre-match pep talk
16:00 – First half kick-off of the 90 minute match
16:45: Half time and back into the changing rooms for your Manager’s Churchillian/Brian Clough rousing pep talk
17:00: Second half kick-off
17:45: Full time and if it’s a draw straight to a penalty shoot out
18:00: Post match presentation and photographs on the pitch and then post-match shower & change
18:30 – Off into West Bridgford for post-match buffet and beers – venue TBC
The winning team will be awarded the John Pye 2019 Football Trophy. Squads will be handpicked by John Pye Auctions and will be posted on the dressing room wall for arrival. We try to make the squads as balanced as possible.
All you need to bring are your own football boots (studs or moulds, it’s up to you but we suggest moulds), a pair of shin pads, towel and shower gel. Shin pads must be worn, match refreshments and first aid provisions (hopefully not needed will be provided by John Pyes).
