Saints supporting megastar Craig David joined Ryan Bertrand, Ché Adams and Angus Gunn for a kickabout ahead of performing at St Mary’s Stadium last week, in association with Virgin Media.
The performance marked the launch of Gig1 – Virgin Media’s gigabit broadband service, which launched in Southampton, with residents being the first to benefit from the UK’s fastest broadband speeds.
To warm up for the gig, David was put through his paces by Bertrand, Adams and Gunn.
Craig said: “I’ve been a Saints fan all my life so to play a gig at St Mary’s Stadium to celebrate bringing my hometown the best connection in the UK is amazing. I have nothing but fantastic memories in Southampton and I hope the night was unforgettable for everyone.”
Jeff Dodds, Chief Operating Officer at Virgin Media, said: “We have deep connection with Southampton, so bringing Craig back home to perform and seeing him on the pitch showing off his skills with the Saints just topped off this amazing day for the city.”
A major pillar of Virgin Media’s sponsorship of Southampton Football Club over the past three years has been rewarding the dedicated and loyal support of Saints fans.
The recently launched ‘Super Saints’ campaign recognises Saints’ passionate support with a range of money-can’t-buy experiences as well as unique fan competitions and exclusive behind the scenes content.
