Hull Vs Southend

Sunday, 5 January, 2014

The cultural war between the City of Culture 2017 and the Alternative City of Culture 2017 was escalated today when Hull City and Southend Utd were announced in the FA Cup draw. The Tigers will be facing the Shrimpers in what will be the first head-on-head collision between the two Cultural landmarks who are both set to show the country and the world why their culture, music, entertainment, literature, heritage & history are unique.

Hull City will face their former manager Phil Brown in the FA Cup Fourth Round after being drawn away at League Two outfit Southend United. 

Mr Amess commented, “It is absolutely fantastic that Southend and Hull football clubs will meet each other on the pitch,” he continued, “Southend Utd is part of our culture and history here in the town and I look forward to the fans of Southend getting behind Southend as the Alternative City of Culture 2017; and of course seeing the Shrimpers beat the Tigers.”
