Keith McDonnell is head of Bodog Europe and a huge football fan. Ever since his Bodog group did a sponsorship deal with Fulham Football Club he’s been trying to get me to a match. Once I finally went I asked myself “Why didn’t I do this sooner?”. The Fulham group treated me like royalty with a VIP tour of Craven Cottage, introductions and time spent with the players and management, a hearty British dinner and many cool, crisp pints. They even surprised me with a customized, signed Fulham jersey! I now try to get to a match ever time I’m in London. Craven Cottage is such a gem of a stadium right on the Thames with so much history, it’s a truely unique place to watch a match. I really enjoyed meeting Mohamed Al-Fayed as he’s a business man I’ve studied over the years and team manager Roy Hodgson has done a great job with the team.
