Journey to the West: The TLC Bet Challenge

By SFC Media time Fri 12 Oct Club

It is an epic journey unlike any other, all the way from the Far East to St Mary’s.

Two Chinese fans will be taking on the TLC Bet Challenge this month, as they bid to cover more than 5,000 miles, from Beijing to Southampton, without the aid of air travel.

Hais Liu and Libao will embark on the two-week ‘Journey to the West’ this weekend, with the aim of making it to St Mary’s in time for the Premier League game against Newcastle, on Saturday 27th October.

They are set to spend more than 170 hours onboard a train during the course of the challenge, starting on the Trans-Siberian Railway, as they make their way to Moscow.

From their, their journey will continue, with stops in Berlin, Amsterdam and Paris, before they finally arrive in England.

With the help of locals in each city, Hais Liu and Libao will be completing challenges along the way, as they aim to make it to St Mary’s for the 3pm kick-off against the Magpies.

The challenge is being undertaken in association with TLC Bet, Southampton’s Official Asian Betting Partner, and the pair’s journey will be documented as they make the demanding trip.

If you’re heading to the game against Newcastle later this month, be sure to keep an eye out for Hais Liu and Libao, and give them a warm welcome to St Mary’s.
