Four-time Super Middleweight Champion of the World Carl Froch will present the Nottingham Forest European Cup-winning heroes with their induction into the National Football Museum Hall of Fame.
Forest fan Froch will be guest of honour at the star-studded event that takes place at the Motorpoint Arena in Nottingham on November 3rd.
The Colwick-born boxer will feature in a question and answer session about his Forest heroes – a team that he grew up wanting to play for.
He commented: “This is a huge honour for me and I will be proud to stand on stage with the biggest football legends Nottingham Forest has ever produced.
“I was only very young when the Miracle Men won back-to-back European Cups but they have provided the inspiration for a generation and helped put Nottingham on the map in the sporting world.
“I am immensely proud to be a Nottingham Forest fan and to present them with this award will make a very special night for me.”
Councillor Jon Collins, Leader of Nottingham City Council, added: “We are delighted that Carl Froch, Freeman of the City, will join us for the Hall of Fame heroes event and present this award to Nottingham Forest.
“Carl is a huge part of Nottingham’s proud sporting heritage and it will be fantastic for his fans to see him back in the big arena – even if it is without the gloves on.”
Footballing heroes from the past and present will join together on November 3rd from 7 to 9pm at the Motorpoint Arena as the Nottingham Forest European Cup-winning squads and the oldest professional football club in the world, Notts County, take their rightful place amongst the world’s football elite.
Over 1,600 football fans and enthusiasts are expected to attend the gala event, which is hosted by Nottingham City Council, and celebrate Nottingham’s status as the City of Football.
Fans will get the chance to meet the stars from past and present as they share their favourite goals and moments from Nottingham’s rich footballing history as well as looking forward to the future of football in the city and the achievements of the Nottingham City of Football project.
