More than 150 football fans congregated at AFC Bournemouth’s Vitality Stadium to watch England play Belgium in the World Cup as part of a social event organised by AFC Business, the club’s commercial arm, and local digital marketing agency Bespoke 4 Business
Despite the disappointing result, business folk from throughout the region enjoyed curry and drinks laid on in the club’s Champions Top Floor Restaurant, as well as a half-time quiz presented by AFC Bournemouth player liaison and hospitality host Jimmy Glass.
AFC Bournemouth Partnerships Manager Amy Marks said: “We had a splendid evening with an excellent group of business people, including a lot of new faces. It was very much a World Cup party and England’s 1-0 defeat did nothing to dampen spirits.
“We are grateful to Bespoke 4 Business, headquartered at Poole’s Albany Business Park and with clients in Dorset, Hampshire, London and across the UK, for sponsoring the event.”
Bespoke 4 Business Marketing Director Hayley Baverstock said: “These events always prove extremely popular and are a great way of bringing people together to watch some football, have a fun evening and also network in a relaxed manner.”
