Footie-loving kids from Bolton Wanderers and Oxford United were given the experience of a lifetime last weekend as they followed in the footsteps of their heroes with a VIP experience for the EFL League One Play-Off Finals at Wembley Stadium.

Kellogg’s took young Wanderers and Oxford United’s fans to the capital on their very own team bus.

From arriving through the exclusive player’s entrance to walking out of the famous tunnel, the youngsters got to experience a match day just like the players themselves.

Chris Silcock, managing director of Kellanova, the company that owns Kellogg’s, said: “Getting a VIP experience to a match at Wembley is a dream come true for many football fans, so we were delighted to be able to get local kids on board our buses to support Bolton and Oxford for an experience they’ll never forget.   

“The Kellogg’s Football Camps programme aims to help kids get active and keep them entertained this summer at their favourite football clubs.

“With access to FA-qualified coaches, we’re giving children the chance to follow in the footsteps of their footballing heroes, and this weekend we’ve offered a flavour of just that at Wembley.

“We can’t wait to bring thousands of kids together across the country once the camps kick off in July.” 

Kellogg’s recently announced a nationwide football camps programme, kicking off this summer in 74 locations in partnership with the English Football League (EFL), Manchester City, Celtic and Rangers.
