Fans delight in challenging stars to FIFA 17 duel!
29 September 2016
Scottish stars Charlie Mulgrew and Stephen Hendrie managed to sneak in some secret 'game time' on Tuesday night by surprising young fans in The GAME Room!
The summer signings made a special visit to the new facility in the Blackburn Rovers Community Trust Family Stand before the fixture against Sheffield Wednesday, so that they could challenge the children to a game of FIFA 17 before its official release, much to the delight of the excited supporters.
The GAME Room had exclusive access to the full version of FIFA 17 ahead of its official launch today (Thursday), with all six of the available consoles set up for our junior supporters to trial the game playing as Rovers against our local derby neighbours.
Hendrie was making his second appearance in the exciting new room within the space of a week, having previously finished runner-up to Sam Gallagher when eight players came down to Ewood Park for a knockout tournament, arranged in partnership with our friends at GAME Blackburn.
Their newly relocated outlet can be found in The Mall at 40 King William Street and FIFA 17 is available from their shelves now for users of PS4, XBoxOne, PS3 and XBox360 consoles.
The GAME Room is available to any families that purchase matchday tickets in the Blackburn Rovers Community Trust Family Stand and now features a special priority console for wheelchair users for all forthcoming fixtures.
