Shearer Vs Savage: Battle of the Backsides has begun

10th March 2014

At 7.30 this morning the whistle blew at Wembley Stadium marking the start of day one of Battle of the Backsides.

Over the next five gruelling days, Robbie Savage and Alan Shearer will frantically race to be the first to sit on half the seats in the iconic Wembley Stadium in aid of Sport Relief 2014.

Requiring a torturous hard-core session of squatting and sliding, the footballing legends will need to average a backside per seat every four seconds today for the next 10 hours!

Bum and groin problems, stiff muscles, blisters, sores on the hips and fatigue are just a handful of delights threatening to plague the pair during this repetitive and physically draining challenge.

The public are being urged to support the competitive duo in this brutal task and be in with the chance of winning some amazing prizes by entering an exclusive competition. Each competition entry costs £5, with some incredible prizes up for grabs including tickets to see England play at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, a day at the Wimbledon Championship or tickets to One Direction on their UK tour - with a limited 90,000 entries available representing the number of seats collectively sat on during the challenge.

Who’ll be the first to reach the prestigious Royal Box when the final whistle blows at the end of the week?
