LONDON SKOLARS ARE PROUD TO ANNOUNCE RUGBY LEAGUE & UNION LEGEND ANDREW FARRELL OBE AS GUEST OF HONOUR & GUEST SPEAKER FOR THE CAPITAL CHALLENGE

LONDON SKOLARS V WIGAN WARRIORS XIII – JANUARY 16TH 2015 2 P.M KO – HAC

 

London Skolars Capital Challenge 2015 is pleased to announce that this year’s Guest of Honour and Key Speaker will be Rugby League and Union legend, Andy Farrell OBE. The former dual code England International will be honouring us by joining us for the prestigious lunch on January 16th and then answering questions in a Q&A style. He will also be in attendance to watch his former team Wigan take on the Skolars after the lunch.

An unstoppable force in Rugby League, Farrell has represented Great Britain 34 times and England 11 times, many as Captain. He also played and captained the legendary Wigan side amassing over 370 appearances. Winning multiple Challenge Cup finals, Grand Finals and World Club Challenge matches. Farrell also appeared in two World Cups including Captaining Great Britain in 1995. Perhaps the pinnacle of his career was winning the Golden Boot as the World’s best player in 2004.

Farrell also has had a fantastically successful career as a player and coach in Rugby Union. As a player he transitioned from being a dominant Rugby League forward to being a dynamic centre and playing for Saracens 28 times including alongside his son Owen and also 8 times for England. Farrell has since transitioned to be Stuart Lancaster’s right hand man in the England Rugby Union coaching team where he is currently enjoying significant success building a strong England team for the Rugby Union World Cup in 2015.

Andy’s career has been highlighted not only by his Captaincy for Britain, England and Wigan, his successful transition to a new sport, but also for his ability to dominate both as a player, coach and as a leader.

Guests of the luncheon will enjoy a delicious three-course meal with wine served in the HAC’s Banqueting Hall and will be entertained by our  guest speaker before making the short walk outside to watch the Capital Challenge match. The HAC venue is one of the truly awe-inspiring World venues for Rugby of either code, the event is unique and should not be missed. Wigan fans who haven’t seen their side play at the HAC are encouraged to sample this unique venue.

Skolars Events Manager Carolyn Flowers had this to say “We are truly thrilled to have Andrew as guest of honour at this fantastic event. His arguably unparalleled history and success with Wigan is truly fitting to have such a legend be in attendance on the day. The prestigious luncheon should one of the best yet.

For those guests that enjoy both codes and are excited by England’s prospects at next years Union World Cup will I am sure be excited to be able to ask Andy what his thoughts on England’s are first hand. I would encourage all those interested in hospitality places to hurry as places are limited and demand is already high”

Match day tickets are £15 and hospitality places can be bought individually or per table of 10.
