THEY are the must have cards for every football loving school child.

And now football card specialists Panini are bringing their latest albums and collection to Southampton.

The firm are set to take over Westquay, with a whole host of fun football themed activities collectable fans won't want to miss.

It's a teenage boy's dream to become a footballer, and this could become a reality as the public will be given the opportunity to take part in a filmed interview, as if they were a real player in a post-match press conference, which can then be shared on social media.

Chris Clover, head of marketing at Panini, said: “We can’t wait to bring the Panini Sampling Tour to West Quay. We know Southampton is a football mad area and we look forward to everyone competing to top our #SkillWallPanini.

"Our team will be on hand to give out free Adrenalyn XL packs and see which player’s card fans want in their Panini squad.”

The Skill Wall Panini challenge will be on offer for football fans who want to test their skill and be displayed on the Panini leaderboard for all to see, where players will have to strike five balls at three targets in 45 seconds, with each target measuring speed, accuracy and power of the strikes.

Throughout the day, there will be a number of exciting competitions, prize draws and giveaways including free Panini packs, Nike footballs, and various football Kits.

But nobody will leave empty-handed as all players will have their score and photo printed on a special personalised Adrenalyn XL card, just like their football idols.

Football fanatics are encouraged to head to Westquay on Saturday November 2, between 10am and 6pm.
