Newcastle Euro 2024 Big Screen Event

We are delighted to welcome clients old and new to our big screen football dinner featuring the third Euro 2024 group match between England and Slovenia!

It is our great pleasure to confirm that we will be joined for the evening by former Newcastle Utd and England striker, Les Ferdinand, with a current Newcastle Utd star to be confirmed soon! Les is renowned for his treasure trove of hilarious stories from his long career at the top, which are sure to have the room in stitches!

Guests will enjoy a memorable evening of football chat and analysis of the big match, in one of Newcastle’s finest corporate venue. With a drinks reception and photo opportunity with Les and out shortly to be confirmed second guest included in our upgrade package option, a fantastic three course dinner prepared by the award-winning Hilton Gateshead team, a memorabilia auction and the opportunity to hear from two brilliant characters, this is an evening not to be missed!

England v Slovenia: If all goes to plan England’s final group game against Slovenia could give the Three Lions the opportunity to top the group should they be victorious. The last couple of matches against Slovenia, during the 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign, were very tight games indeed, a 0-0 draw in the first leg followed by a very tight 1-0 victory at Wembley courtesy of an injury time winner from Harry Kane. Although only ranked 55 in the world, the Slovenians are captained by Atletico Madrid’s world class goalkeeper, Jan Oblak, with RB Leipzig starlet Benjamin Šeško providing a genuine goal threat up top. Harry Kane and his men will need to be at their best as any complacency will be capitalised upon. With the likes of Jude Bellingham, Phil Foden, Declan Rice and Trent Alexander-Arnold in their ranks, England will start as hot favourites!

Les Ferdinand: One of the Premier League’s most prolific strikers, Les currently lies 11th in the all-time list of goal-scorers, with 149 goals to his name, one behind Michael Owen. In all competitions he netted over 200 times at senior level, with an average just under a goal every two games. Les played for a total of 6 different Premier League clubs, but his most prolific years were spent at his beloved QPR, Newcastle Utd and Spurs. Loved wherever he played, he is particularly fondly remembered by the Toon Army, where his two season spell was filled with goals, scoring an amazing 50 times in just 84 matches for the club. He played on 17 occasions for England, scoring 5 times, and was part of both the Euro ’96 and World Cup ’98 squads – he would surely have won many more in other eras but was battling against Alan Shearer as a classic no.9. Since early 2015, Les has been Director of Football at QPR, where he continues to serve his first senior club with distinction. A regular at our events over the years, we are delighted to welcome Les back as one of our speakers.

Special Guest: Joining Les Ferdinand at this event will be another fantastic special guest, with the person in question due to be announced in the very near future. We are delighted to be able to bring some of the biggest stars to our events and can boast recent appearances from the likes of Eddie Howe, Kevin Keegan, David Ginola, Rob Lee, Laurent Robert, Mehrdad Ghodoussi & Amanda Staveley. So watch this space as we look to bring you another great name!

Keith Downie: A keen Newcastle Utd fan, Keith has been working in the sports media since his late teens, working his way up from covering the Scottish lower divisions to featuring on Sky Sports, including Gillette Soccer Saturday with Jeff Stelling. He has presented a huge range of football news and reportage, covering the Premier League and European competitions. When not away on work assignments he is a regular at St. James’ Park, cheering on the team he has supported all his life!

Hilton Newcastle Gateshead: One of the city’s best hotels, the Hilton Gateshead is a great location for our Euro 2024 big screen event, offering a classy environment for our guests. We will be holding our sporting dinner in the largest room, the Gateshead Suite, with guests seated on round tables of ten for what promises be a night to remember!
