Bayo causes a stir at EFL season launch event!

3 August 2016

Adebayo Akinfenwa was arguably the biggest attraction for fans and journalists alike at the EFL season launch event at Craven Cottage on Tuesday.

Wanderers' world-famous striker joined manager Gareth Ainsworth as the only representatives from the playing side of any League Two club, alongside MK Dons' Karl Robinson and Richie Barker, Brentford's Dean Smith and Daniel Bentley, Brighton's David Stockdale and Fulham pair Sone Aluko and Matt Smith.

As well as meeting fans of various clubs and taking part in a photocall to officially launch the new EFL season, Bayo and Gareth took part in interviews with numerous national media outlets including BBC Sport, Channel 5, Nickelodeon, Sky Sports,, talkSPORT and a number of newspapers.

On his rounds, Bayo took over the SkyBet Snapchat account, held Facebook Live chats with Juliette Ferrington of BBC Sport Online and Mark McAdam from Sky Sports, and even squat-lifted McAdam during a live feature on Sky Sports News!
