Between June 16 and July 10, 2016, Thames travellers are in for a treat, especially if they love football.
Anyone who hops on board the Floating Fan Zone – a specially converted MBNA Thames Clipper to help celebrate MBNA’s latest Good Skills/Bad Skills campaign - will receive a unique footballing experience. The boat will be wrapped in an artificial football pitch, which will continue inside, and - to mark the 50th anniversary of England’s famous World Cup triumph - one of the most iconic images from this epic event will be splashed on the back of the boat.
Its seats will be covered in MBNA football shirts, and there’ll be loads of other football-related stuff happening as well, including prizes for wearing a football shirt on Fridays, matches showing on the on-board TVs (subject to normal terrestrial coverage) so you won’t miss a single kick, and maybe even the chance to get up close and personal with some top trophies. One or two surprises could be in store for a number of lucky passengers too.
The Clipper will stay in normal service the whole time, so you can make your journey as you normally do. And if you happen to be in town and need to get somewhere, why not get on board the MBNA Floating Fan Zone and join us for a feast of football fun?
We’d love to see your photos and videos on the boat, so get posting. Remember to use the hashtag #FloatingFanZone when you do. In the meantime, here’s a few pictures from our launch day.
