92 Club: Bristol football fans to visit all 92 grounds for Invest In ME charity

92 Club: Bristol football fans to visit all 92 grounds for Invest In ME charity

By The Bristol Post
Posted: April 14, 2014

FOUR football fans from Bristol are preparing to embark on a tour of all 92 football league grounds in 92 hours in aid of Invest In ME. Team leader Mike Harley, 31, will be accompanied on the challenge by his wife Cat, 31, and two friends, Raza Rivzi and Mike Ward, both 32.

The group was inspired to raise money for the ME research charity by a childhood friend, who has had the condition for several years. Money raised will go towards UK trials of the drug Rituximab.

A 2,600-mile route is due to be completed in 92 hours of driving, spread out over the course of six days. The clock will be stopped every night so that each club can be visited in daylight, raising maximum publicity for the charity.

Mr Harley, a recruitment consultant from Bedminster, said: "The idea is to reach the grounds at a time where we can give out information and maximise on raising the profile of ME, the need for research into the illness and the Invest In ME charity.

"What's more important is to raise awareness of new treatments, rather than to break any records".

He added: "It's going to be a gruelling challenge but, as football fans, it's one we're all looking forward to."

The quartet is due to set off from Plymouth Argyle on Wednesday April 16, reaching Middlesbrough – the final club on the route – five days later. Sixty-five clubs across all four divisions – from Milton Keynes Dons to Manchester United – have so far pledged their support for the expedition. Bristol Rovers has offered the four a ground welcome, as well as a feature in its match day programme. The team is due to reach both Bristol clubs at lunchtime on the first day.

Team 92 will follows in the footsteps of a number of other groups which have completed the challenge. They have been getting advice from the 92 Plus 1 group, which completed it in October last year.

So far, the team has raised more than £2,000 including a number of anonymous donations. Donations can be made at: http://www.justgiving.com/teams/strobl.
