Former Coventry City striker Dion Dublin was busy challenging the public to a keepy-uppy competition last Wednesday at the launch of npower's new Football League roadshow.

Local residents were invited to come down to see how they fared in npower's keepy-uppy contest, with the first 20 challengers achieving 45 keepy-uppys winning a £45 voucher to spend at any official football league club shop or ticket office.

Dublin, who made nearly 150 appearances for the club, netting 61 times, was joined by Coventry City's mascot Sky Blue Sam at the event.

"It has been great to be here in Coventry to launch npower's Football League roadshow," Dublin commented. "It's the latest initiative of npower's Football League sponsorship, hot on the heels of the Home Team Heroes programme which will see the company giving each of the League's 72 clubs a community grant from the npower Charity Fund.

"The idea behind the roadshow is to get the communities involved - it's a place where football fans can really enjoy themselves. Today was the big unveiling, but it will travel to over 50 cities over the next 12 months."

Coventry was the first city to see npower's state-of-the-art Football League roadshow trailer, which has a multitude of activities on offer for fans. As well as taking part in the keepy-uppy competition, fans had their photo taken with the npower Championship trophy and played the new FIFA 11 computer game in the EA Sports hub alongside the trailer.

Anyone who switched their gas or electricity supply on the day received a £45 voucher to spend in the club shop, a free Coventry City goody bag, money off the new FIFA 11 game and the chance to win tickets for Coventry's npower Championship match Middlesbrough.
