Book now for special event at the SoL.

A special dinner is being held at the Stadium of Light on November 1 to celebrate Jimmy Montgomery’s 70th birthday.

A gala dinner and ‘This Is Your Life’-style extravaganza is being planned in honour of the 1973 FA Cup-winning hero, who is the club’s all-time record appearance maker.

Montgomery played 623 games for the club after making his debut against Walsall in 1961 – a record which is unlikely to be beaten.

The black tie dinner will include a host of tributes to Jimmy from a host of sporting greats as well as a charity auction.

All proceeds from the event will go to support the club’s partnership with the Nelson Mandela Foundation.

Tickets are priced at £75 and include a three-course dinner with coffee, a pre-event reception in Quinn’s Bar and a commemorative programme.

Sponsorship packages are also available - an associate package which includes a table for 12, a drinks reception, photo opportunities and stadium tour with Jimmy, alongside logo acknowledgements throughout the evening and on the club’s official website, starts at just £2,225. 

A headline sponsorship package for this marquee event includes a boardroom champagne reception, table for 12, photograph opportunities, a four-course meal, a minute of LED advertising during a Barclays Premier League game during the 2013-14 season, logo opportunities in the evening’s programme and on the big screens plus a stadium tour with lunch and match day hospitality with Jimmy for a game during the 2013-14 Barclays Premier League season.
