With the World Cup just days away, we at Lockerroom are getting in the World Cup spirit. As such, we have already had a sweepstake. Unfortunately, this was not without controversy as MD’s Justin Brookfield and Iain Linkletter were paired with favourites Spain & Brazil. I on the other hand am not over the moon with picking out holders Italy but it could’ve been a lot worse and perhaps I could be in with a shout of third place.
We’ve also set up a Lockerroom Fantasy Football Mini League that is filling up fast. Each member of staff was asked to pick their first XI and subs and given 20 transfers to make throughout the tournament. Favourites for the as yet to be confirmed prize is current reigning champion from the domestic season and Lockerroom’s Associate Director, Robert Jones as well as Euro 2008 champion, Justin Brookfield.
