#STAYINtertotoCup: Preview: Iron v Bolton Wanderers

13 April 2020

The Iron take on League One side Bolton Wanderers in the first of three Group K matches in the STAY INtertoto Cup.

If you’re not yet up to date on social media, the STAY INtertoto Cup has succeeded the Ultimate Quaran-Team tournament which took Twitter by storm, with 128 teams across the globe getting involved in the FIFA challenge.

Wolverhampton Wanderers were the inaugural winners of that competition and now 64 teams are to compete across eight nations. The difference this time is that all 64 teams are being represented by one of their professional footballers.

The initiative is one borne out of the desire to bring clubs together during a time of unprecedented measures surrounding COVID-19, and to also raise money for NHS staff and projects to support those suffering with the Coronavirus. You can donate on the tournament’s Just Giving page: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/stayintertotocup 

The Iron was number 48 in the draw, which was broadcast on YouTube and will face Swansea City and West Ham United, as well as the Trotters. John McAtee is the Iron's representative, and he will take on Harry Brockbank (Bolton), Ben Wilmot (Swansea) and Ryan Fredericks (West Ham) in the group stages of the competition.
