Hear the crowd roar and the commentator read your name behind the chants of the fans, Live on the radio. Will you score the winning goal? Or get sent off? Who will be the hero of The Reach Cup - December 2020
But I can't play football? All you need to be able to do is fill a short form, that's it.

How does it work? We switch out the names of real footballers on a popular football computer game. We make the computer play the computer, so you're replacing a professional player, and we have a live commentator narrate what's happening, crowd noises a plenty!
