The North West offering of the touring groundscare trade show which takes place at Merseyside's Haydock Park Racecourse will hear the former footballer’s feet-on experience at international pitches around the world as well as his experiences at the World Cup in Paris in 1998.
Gallacher said: "The quality of playing surfaces has improved year on year as the modern game at all levels has evolved. The groundsman at a club has always been an important part of the off field team and improved surfaces allow the ball to move quicker allowing the more technically gifted players to create scoring chances."
Gallacher played for Blackburn Rovers where he was part of the Premier League title winning side in 1995. He started his career with Dundee United and went on to also play for Coventry City, Newcastle United, Preston North End, Sheffield Wednesday and Huddersfield Town. He won 53 caps for Scotland scoring 9 goals, playing at Euro 92, Euro 96, and the 1998 FIFA World Cup.
MAP Live highlights the latest machinery in groundscare as well as live demonstrations and technical updates.
Director Clare Johnson said she enormously appreciated the industry support which was coming in for MAP Live and predicted it would become "an established fixture."
