Footballs fans in Kenilworth will be put on the spot when a World Cup penalty shoot-out competition is held in the town centre to raise money for charity next month.
The penalty tournaments, which will take place at Talisman shopping centre on Saturday, July 3, will give adults the chance to win a 32 inch HD ready television while under-XXs could take home a Nintendo Wii console with a football game.
Both competitions get underway at 10am and will cost £1 for four shots at goal with all proceeds raised to be donated to Scope - the leading UK disability charity for children and adults with cerebral palsy.
All those successful with all four penalties will then progress to the final and the chance to win the top prizes.
Hugo Hawkings, chief executive of Talisman developers Discovery Properties, said he expects the competitions to be keenly contested.
"It is not often penalty shoot-outs are popular in England with the track record the national team has had in major championships in recent years," he said.
"I'm sure the adult and junior competitions will be well contested though, especially with the great prizes on offer and with all proceeds going to a special cause like Scope."
Demolition has started on the Northside in Talisman. A new Hoarding has been put up in its place.
