WITH football fever rising across the world, the people of Chippenham are invited to take part in the hunt for a sporting legend in Sports Direct to celebrate the World Cup.

Somewhere hidden between the shelves of the Sports Direct store in Emery Gate Shopping Centre lurks a famous face.

If you find and identify them and you could win a footballing prize consisting of an official England football shirt, official World Cup football and an official England supporter’s t-shirt.

Sports Direct Manager Rob Forrester said, “We are very much looking forward to the World Cup here at Sports Direct.

"All our staff are hyped up and ready. They’ve enjoyed the build-up and decorating the store to support our English Lions.

"We can’t wait for customers to come in and try and find the famous ex footballer, hunting around the store and hopefully picking up some bargains while they’re at it. We have all the official England and FIFA gear on sale now."

Chippenham Connected Manager, Kathryn Crosweller said, “It’s great to see businesses in Chippenham engage with events, and we know that football fans will love this competition.”

All you need to do is visit the store between before June 30 and seek out the illusive celebrity.
