What WE DO

Play With A Legend's origins are in setting up unique football experiences. We bring together fans and their idols so they can play the sport they love together.


Whether it’s a corporate event, a birthday or stag, or an end of season celebration, we use our extensive network of contacts in the sporting world to organise unforgettable experiences.


We also act as an agency for our legends, sourcing a wide range of commercial opportunities for our former pros.

Our Story

Play With a Legend was the brainchild of former professional footballer Perry Groves and sports journalist Josh Landy. Josh and Perry met as producer and pundit in the world of Sports Television and struck up a friendship which would see Perry playing football alongside Nigel Winterburn in a special game for Josh’s best friend to create a memorable stag for a huge Arsenal fan. 


After countless requests to arrange similar events for friends all around the country, the company was set up in the Spring of 2014. Play With A Legend now works with over 125 former footballers, organising not only stag, birthday, corporate and charity events but also acting as an agency, working on a wide variety of projects both in the UK and abroad. 

We have two sister companies - Play With A Legend Cricket was set up in May 2016 and Bake With A Legend was set up in October 2016.
