Alongside THFC, Paramount will be running a host of marketing activities, including a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem-inspired stadium tour where families will search for the Turtles in their sewer lairs as well as eat the Turtles’ favourite meal – pizza.

There will also be activities and giveaways with the club’s Junior Membership programme, amongst radio and exhibitor competitions.
