Strictly Grass Roots Football with Robbie Savage and Russell Grant


Strictly Come Dancing contestants Robbie Savage and Russell Grant will be teaming up again at the NEC in Birmingham later this month, all in the name of grass roots football.

The two Strictly Come Dancing stars, who have become good friends following their chance meeting on the popular BBC primetime show, will be appearing at The Grass Roots Football Show between the 25thand 27th May.

Grant, who’s first ever job was an unpaid archivist and statistician for the Middlesex FA, will be appearing at the show as part of his role as ambassador for the Non League Association and will join former Premier League star and now media pundit, Savage, in a football seminar in the main arena on the Saturday.

Savage, an ambassador for The Grass Roots Football Show, said; “Not many people know that Russell has such a passion for grass roots football.

“We became really good mates during Strictly Come Dancing and see each other quite a bit now that the show is finished.  When I mentioned The Grass Roots Football Show to him he was very keen to get involved and I am delighted he is going to be joining us for the three days at the NEC.

“We might not seeing any dancing at the NEC but I will try and get his twinkle toes in a pair of football boots over the weekend and see what his skills are like.”

Russell, who helped design the club badge for his beloved Brentford FC, said; “I have heard so much about the show from Robbie and I can’t wait to meet the grass roots football family at the NEC.

“We might have to swap our sequins for football kits throughout the weekend but I am really looking forward to three days of nonstop football.”

The Grass Roots Football Show 2012 is the biggest football event of its kind in Europe and takes place at the NEC in Birmingham between 25th and 27th May.
