Saturday, June 25, 2022 marks the 40th anniversary of Northern Ireland’s historic World Cup game, when Gerry Armstrong scored that iconic goal against the host nation, Spain!

A celebratory gala dinner (dress code – smart/casual) is being organised, taking place at the Europa Hotel, where many of the team of 82 will attend.

Entitled ‘The Spirit of 82’, the event will simultaneously raise money for The Lightbody Trust (Snow Patrol’s nominated charity) and will have some fabulous auction prizes.

Players confirmed include Gerry Armstrong, Martin O’Neill, Pat Jennings, Jimmy Nichol, David McCreary, John McClelland, Mal Donaghy, Billy Hamilton, Jim Cleary, George Dunlop, Felix Healey, John O’Neill, Johnny Jameson and Sammy Nelson.

Smart Pay, NI’s most trusted merchant service provider, is the main sponsor, but there are still some silver and bronze sponsorship opportunities available.

A table of 11 (to include one of the players) costs £1,900 (NB Players confirmed to sit at your table come at a first come first served basis).
Table of 10 costs £1,400. Individual tickets cost £150 each.
