One die hard Blades fan could soon be soaking up the sun in Marbella ahead of the Championship season.
We have teamed up with teletextholidays.co.uk to offer one football fanatic and a friend a chance to spend a week in sun-soaked Marbella next month.
Following in the footsteps of the celebrated Sheffield United players for their pre-season training, the winning pair will not only spend long lazy days on the beach and enjoy the glamourous nightlife of this famous Spanish city, but also watch their sporting heros in action at a friendly game against Malaga FC on Friday July 14.
Combining every Blades’ football dream with a stylish summer holiday, the winner and their guest will be staying at a four star hotel or above in Marbella for seven nights.
Located on southern Spain’s Costa del Sol, Marbella plays home to white sandy beaches and exclusive beach clubs, golf courses, a host of bars and restaurants as well as upmarket boutiques for shopping.
You will have no problem filling your days - and nights - with lots of beautiful sights and exciting activities, but it may be harder for you to choose who to share this incredible prize with.
The winning pair will be jetting off on their flight from the UK to Malaga on Monday July 10 and returning on Monday July 17.
The prize also includes return resort transfers in Malaga and hold luggage.
