The ‘Carling Presents an Evening of Legends’ series, which arrives at Solitude on Wednesday 9 December will allow supporters to take part in an open Q&A forum with their heroes.

Aisling Duffy Carling Marketing Manager is delighted with the success of the events so far.

“We created the Carling Presents evenings to help the fans get closer to legends and star players from their favourite teams in the Carling Premiership", she said. "This is the final event pre-Christmas and we are delighted with how well they have been received by fans.

“The evenings have allowed for some fantastic football banter as fans have put the players and legends under the spotlight with every topic covered from best goal or player to career highs and lows to changing room secrets!”

The BBC’s Jackie Fullerton is hosting each evening and also blogging on each event on the Carling Website.

“I am delighted to be involved in Carling Presents", said Jackie. "It provides football fans with a fantastic opportunity to find out more about the legends and star players of their favourite teams in the Carling Premiership”.

Geoff Wilson from The IFA said: “These events show Carling’s dedication to helping football fans get closer to the team they support. I believe the events will be a big success and fans should register their interest now as places are limited.”
