Sealy provides dream experience for Wigan Warriors fan
Last month, bed brand Sealy UK surprised a lifelong Wigan Warriors fan to a match day experience and Sealy sleep prizes as part of the brand’s first-ever Dream Come True Awards.
Sealy teamed up with the Wigan Warriors to ask fans to nominate a friend or family who deserved a treat for going above and beyond in their life, or anyone needing a pick-me-up. Hundreds of people nominated their friends and family members as part of the awards, with Mick Treen from Clayton-Le-Moors picked as the winner. Nominated by his fiancee Rachel, Mick was chosen after working tirelessly to support his family since the birth of his son in September, and dreaming of meeting the Wigan Warriors rugby players for years.
Sealy surprised Mick with a phone call from one of his favourite players, Willie Isa, who revealed he had been picked as the winner and would be treated to a VIP hospitality experience, behind-the scenes stadium tour and player meet-and-greet at Wigan Warriors’ game against Hull KR on 5th July.
The couple were also treated to a Sealy duvet and pillow set along with a two-night stay at Lodore Falls Hotel in the Lake District.
Sealy is Wigan Warriors’ Official Sleep Partner – a sponsorship that has included the provision of Sealy mattresses to all players and the installation of a rest bed for recovery at the team’s High Performance centre.
Reflecting on his experience, Mick says: “I’m a huge Wigan Warriors fan, so getting the call from Willie Isa to say I had won was just unbelievable. Meeting the team, having a private stadium tour, and being on the actual pitch instead of just the stands was incredible. It was one of the best nights of our lives. Thank you to Sealy and the whole team, it really was a dream come true.”
