Solent Student wins VIP Saints FC tickets

Congratulations to LLB Law student Rebecca Burt, 22, who has won two tickets to the Southampton FC v AFC Bournemouth match this Sunday.

Rebecca, who is in her third year, is planning to take her boyfriend and big Saints fan Ollie, who has been serving in the Army in the Falklands for the past four months. Rebecca has worked in the VIP boxes at St Mary’s Stadium for the last two seasons but is yet to see a match.

Rebecca says: “When you are working in the boxes you can hear it all and it just sounds so amazing. I try to sneak a look at the game every now and then. I always wanted to feel the atmosphere that is on the other side. I find myself singing along to the games in half time and can’t wait to be out there with the fans.”

The match falls on the weekend Rebecca and Ollie will be reunited and when speaking about her boyfriend’s reaction she said: “He will just be made up. We are so excited for this weekend anyway, we’ll go out for dinner and do normal things again and to have this on Sunday will be the perfect end to the weekend.”

Southampton Solent University, the Saints’ official university partner, is sponsoring the match and will be running activities in half-time in which football supporters can win prizes.
