Road to SuperCupNI – a special series of short reads for our 40th anniversary tournament.
We’re inviting teams to tell us a little about themselves, how preparations are going and what coming to Northern Ireland to participate in SuperCupNI means to them.
Next up in the series – Charlton Athletic.
“Charlton Athletic are delighted to again be participating in such a prestigious and famous tournament.
SuperCupNI has been a real highlight of our players season for many years now and it has proved to have been a huge part in their development.
It has been great to see several of our players that represented us in the final v Rangers in 2019 go on to make their first team debuts this season.
For a League 1 club like ourselves, these opportunities to play against fantastic clubs from all over the world are unrivalled.
This year, the boys have returned early from pre season this week eager to impress before we head out to Northern Ireland.
The lads are excited and motivated to defend the title we won last year against a superb Glenavon side.
We look forward to seeing everyone on the 23rd July!”
