Gary Lineker will also be present to add his thoughts to the discussion with Sky Sports News presenter Charlotte Jackson on hand to take questions from the audience.
The debate will range from the panel’s views on England’s chances of success, to selecting their England starting XIs and overall predictions for who will win the competition. The writers will also reflect back on their experiences at previous European Championships and provide ‘behind the scenes’ insights into how teams prepare themselves for one of the biggest stages in European football.
FWA Chairman Steve Bates said: “We are delighted to able to launch our first FWA Live event with such an illustrious line-up of footballing experts. Bringing together the combined experiences and knowledge of these individuals under one roof will provide a thoughtful and entertaining preview of what is set to be a very exciting Euro 2012 competition.”
The event is being staged to raise awareness of the National Literary Association, a partner of the FWA. The National Literacy Association works in partnership with a range of organisations to promote awareness of and support children's literacy needs. Tickets for the event went on sale today priced at £40, including food and refreshment.
