A Roaring Year for Two Tails and the Football Association

By 3rd December 2023February 14th, 2024Corporate Events, Live Events
Two Tails became ‘Three Tails’ as we made some new furry friends in 2023.

Throughout the 2023 international football season, Two Tails was delighted to begin a new relationship with the world-renowned English Football Association (FA), becoming the official custodians of the freshly updated mascots Roary, Mane, and Paws.

With a reputable history in working with costumed characters, the FA asked us to provide the performers for the much-loved mascots, as well as lead in the overall care, storage, and logistics of the costumes.

Over the course of the year, we chaperoned the performers and mascot costumes at England men’s, women’s, and under 21’s fixtures, including the prestigious FA Cup Final and Semi-finals at the iconic Wembley Stadium. The team managed an impressive total of 16 games, with 10 of them hosted at the historic Wembley Stadium and an additional 6 on the road, featuring prominent FA club grounds such as Manchester United, Everton, Nottingham Forest, and Leicester City.

Two Tails has established a strong working relationship with both the FA and Wembley Stadium, escorting the mascots both on the pitch and in the VIP hospitality areas, charming everyone they met.

Joe Divall, Head of FA Events says:

“Two Tails’ care and attention of our iconic mascots has been excellent. Their production team and performers have played an invaluable role in elevating the mascots’ presence, bringing the characters to life, and enhancing the fans’ experience and overall match atmosphere.”

At the helm of the project was our Head of Events, Natasha Flegg:

“It was an honour to play a pivotal role in orchestrating the appearances of the mascots, both at home and away games. The performers were excellent, as always, and the mascots proved to be a huge hit amongst fans.”
