Get your photo taken with Floyd and Harvey

Meet the Addicks’ popular mascots, Floyd and Harvey, in and around The Valley ahead of the game.

Have fun in our Family Activity Zone

All young Addicks are invited to kick the ball around with us in the Family Activity Zone (FAZ) before we kick off against Cambridge United this Saturday.

Our indoor and outdoor FAZ are open from 12.30pm until 2.15pm on matchdays and are located in Valley Central and the West Stand car park. 

Inside Valley Central's FAZ, join in the fun and take part in a game of table tennis, table football, pool or represent Charlton Athletic on FIFA! Younger Charlton supporters can show off their colouring skills and also draft a letter to their favourite Charlton men's or women's player in our letters to players box!

Outdoors, in the West Stand car park, jump into our famous two-v-two panna cage, take a shot at our inflatable target shooter and target donut games, and put your football skills to the test against fellow young fans. High scorers have the chance to win a prize!

Entry and all activities are free of charge, so why not come down and join us before the game…

The CrossBEER Challenge

An exciting new half-time competition, the CrossBEER Challenge will see one Charlton player get one shot to hit the crossbar from the halfway line to win home supporters, with a ticket to the game, a free beer or drink at the Addicks next home Saturday league game against Exeter City.

Former Addick Kevin Lisbie will be taking on the shot on Saturday and should he be successful, everyone with a ticket for the game will get a voucher for a free beer or equivalent drink ahead of Charlton’s home game against Exeter City on September 10th.

Please note that supporters must be registered on the club’s database to receive the voucher for the free drink should the crossbar be hit.

Valley Gold Crossbar Challenge

Keep an eye out at half-time for the Valley Gold Crossbar Challenge, where one Valley Gold member will get the chance to hit the bar from the edge of the D, outside the 18-yard box and win the prize pool which currently stands at a huge £11,000!
