Guests were treated to complimentary refreshments (including festive mince pies from Lidl) in the newly opened Three Lions pub as CheekySport hosts David and Joel entertained the crowd and held a Q&A session with special guest Graeme Le Saux.
Soon after the draw had finished, confirming England in a group with Tunisia, Panama and Belgium, taking them to Volgograd, Nizhy Novgorod and Kaliningrad, CheekySport looked to Le Saux for his thoughts on the draw and some insight to what it is like being in an England team at the World Cup.
Each supporter who attended was entered into a raffle for a chance to win a signed England shirt or two FA Lounge tickets for the England v Italy match in March. Two lucky winners Peter Connolly and Blaine Fleet were drawn out of the hat (actually a bag) to win the signed shirt and FA Lounge tickets respectively.
As the guests started to leave, no doubt with many of them having already booked their flights and hotels, the excitement that comes with the World Cup began to set in.
