World cup fever is on its way to Milton Keynes when people will get to meet the offical mascot Fuleco and send the England team a good luck message in a unique photo booth.

As sponsors of the FIFA™ World Cup 2014, Continental Tyres is embarking on a road trip, taking a little piece of Brazil to football fans across England.

Stopping off at Milton Keynes on Wednesday, April 30, people will also be able to test their goal scoring prowess to win official world cup merchandise.

The roadshow will be at the Fastfit Station, Unit 2, Newmarket Court, Milton Keynes, from 11am and noon.

Continental is also offering the chance for one lucky person to win a pair of tickets to the FIFA World Cup Final in Brazil, including flights and accommodation – a once in a lifetime prize for any fan.

To be in with a chance to win, people have to tweet a picture of the roadshow truck when they spot it and use the hashtag #contiroadtorio.

The roadshow began in Liverpool on March 11, and was launched by former Liverpool and England striker Robbie Fowler.

Robbie said: “It is great that Continental are doing this, it can really unite everyone to get behind our boys, sending them messages of support and letting everyone feel they can be part of the team – plus someone will actually make it to the final!”

Peter Robb, spokesman for Continental, said: “With Brazil far away and tough for most fans to get to, we’re delighted to be able to bring World Cup fever to Milton Keynes. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”

Over seven weeks the Continental roadshow will visit hundreds of locations across England and give tens of thousands of fans the chance to get involved.

Details of the whole tour, including the route and updates on progress will be available at the dedicated website:
