Northampton Town will have at least one fan in the stand when they take place in the League Two playoffs next week, with NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal present in the stands in cardboard cutout form.

Shaq is a fan of the fourth-tier English side and with the League Two regular-season ended in a vote last week, the playoffs will now commence to decide which teams will be promoted to League One.
Why does Shaq support Northampton? Well, he owns a radio station with Northampton Town chairman Kelvin Thomas, so there’s that.
Northampton host Cheltenham Town on June 18 in the first leg of their playoff semifinal and the Cobblers released a photo of the Shaq cardboard cutout which will be in the stands at the Sixfields Stadium.
The winner of that home and away playoff series will face the winner of Exeter City v Colchester United at Wembley in the League Two playoff final on June 29.
Below is how you can get involved and have a cardboard cutout of yourself in the stand for the big League Two playoff semifinal first leg next week.
Who knows, maybe you’ll be sat next to Shaq cheering on the Cobblers?
