Brut is launching the ‘Man Up Challenge’, calling on people nationwide to step up to the ultimate test of scoring a penalty in front of thousands of football fans in a Championship stadium.

Brut is offering you the chance to win this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity at the Charlton Athletic v Crystal Palace match on Friday, September 14.

Join the Brut team to watch this hotly-anticipated match and then take to the turf at half-time to compete in a penalty shootout against Charlton’s legendary former goalkeeper Bob Bolder and four other lucky fans.

The ‘man enough’ winner of this exciting half-time showdown will be the lucky recipient of a signed Charlton Athletic football shirt along with the Brut Man Up Trophy.
