What the professional footballers say

“Nothing can compare to the rush of competing in front of your fans during an international tournament. It is a feeling you never forget as a player,” says Martin Keown, McDonald’s Head of English Football. “England have an exciting squad of up-and-coming talent that will be competing in France this summer and that will only help to inspire the younger generation of fans watching at home.”

“The children chosen to be Player Escorts at UEFA EURO 2016™ will have a once in a lifetime opportunity to be part of something truly special, accompanying future legends of English football as they step out into some of the iconic grounds in European football.”

McDonald’s Head of Welsh Football, Ryan Giggs, says: “Everyone in Wales has been inspired by the national team reaching the UEFA EURO 2016™ Finals and for the lucky few who will be chosen as a McDonald’s Player Escort, the fairy-tale doesn’t end there. Walking out to a deafening ovation from your national fans is an incredibly special moment and this is an amazing opportunity that will stay with these young fans for the rest of their lives.”

“Walking out onto the pitch to play for my country always filled me with a huge sense of pride and I can only imagine how incredible the feeling will be for those lucky player escorts who will have the opportunity to walk out alongside their national heroes. It’s going to be an experience that stays with them forever,” says McDonald’s Head of Northern Irish Football Pat Jennings.
