Birmingham City Football Club are one of the 92 teams in the English Football League (Premier League down to League Two) all participating in an end-of-season charity cycling event from London to Amsterdam.
Starting at West Ham United’s new stadium and ending at Dutch Giants Ajax Amsterdam, the event comprises teams from each of the English clubs. Birmingham City will be represented by long-time South Melbourne FC Corporate Partner Brendon Davis of AIS Insurance.
Managers, executives, players and past champions are representing their clubs in this iconic event. Former England captain Terry Butcher, and his former England team mate Viv Anderson are two of many high profile football identities cycling for an excellent cause.
It’s not a race but a fundraiser for an excellent cause, Brendon explained, before adding “we obviously have to beat Aston Villa and Wolverhampton!”
The event is a 230 kilometre cycle that leaves London on 3 June and crosses the North Sea overnight using the Harwich ferry. Brendon is already making plans on how to best follow SMFC during his overseas trip.
AIS are into their 20th consecutive season as an SMFC Corporate Partner.
