World Cup

Join the ‘find a football’ competition to be in with a chance of winning an official World Cup football plus prizes donated by Everyone Active!

Each weekday, from the start to the end of the World Cup (no matter where England’s journey ends!) an official World Cup football will be hid somewhere in the borough waiting to be found.

By the time the World Cup Final comes around on 15 July, residents would have had the chance to win 22 replica balls.

A picture clue will be posted each day on the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham’s official Facebook and Twitter accounts, with the time the ball is hidden and available to find (a one-hour slot each day) – so make sure you follow on social media to get those crucial hints!

The winning recipient will win the ball and a mystery extra prize, which has been donated by sponsors Everyone Active, who manage both Abbey and Becontree Heath Leisure Centres.

There will be winners all-round as everyone who arrives at the correct location during the promotional hour, but is too late to find the football, will receive a free day pass to use at either of the two leisure centres.

This ‘find a football’ competition is being run by Barking and Dagenham Council and is in no way endorsed by or associated with the FIFA World Cup and its official sponsors.
