Football’s coming home according to Drayton Manor Park’s Mystic Meerkats

Friday, 6th July 2018

ENGLAND take on Sweden during tomorrow’s quarterfinal match in the FIFA 2018 World Cup and the original mystic meerkats from Tamworth’s Drayton Manor Park have predicted an England win.

Having predicted another win in favour of Gareth Southgate and his men the mischievous meerkats are convinced that England will continue to take another step towards the title in the tournament and be victorious in their match against Sweden.

Chris Mitchell, Head of Zoo Operations at Drayton Manor Park, comments: “Our Mystic Meerkats have certainly kept us on our toes with their predictions in this year’s FIFA World Cup.

They have thoroughly enjoyed the animal enrichment, their moment in the spotlight and the extra public attention. We were delighted to witness the meerkats predict an England win against Sweden, a result the Drayton Manor team are all hoping for.

‘’We can’t help but wonder if our meerkat mob might be England’s lucky charm this year?”
