Youth pro-football ground opportunity
FROM YOU LOCAL PARK TO A PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL STADIUM
WILTSHIRE BASED SPORTS PROJECT AIMS TO KICK RACISM OUT OF FOOTBALL
Young people from across Wiltshire are being offered the opportunity to play football at a professional ground, in front of thousands of fans, as part of the ‘Lets Kick Racism Out of Football’ campaign. Wiltshire Council have teamed up with Swindon Town Football Club to deliver a series of local football tournaments in Chippenham, Devizes, Salisbury and Trowbridge during October half term for young people aged 15 and 16. Two teams from each tournament will then go forward to a county final which takes places at Stanley Park Sports Ground on 3rd November, before the final two teams compete in the ‘Kick it Out’ final at half time during Swindon Town’s fixture with Sheffield United on 6th November.
Please find attached a leaflet promoting Wiltshire Council’s ‘Let’s Kick Racism Out of Football’ programme, offering young people aged 15 & 16 the chance to win a place in the county final at the Swindon Town’s County Ground, where they could play in front of 18,000 football fans!
Local tournaments will be taking place in Chippenham, Devizes, Salisbury and Trowbridge during October half term. Please promote this leaflet to any relevant young people or teams, throughout your networks or feel free to add to your websites. Hard copies of the leaflet will be available from next week and will be passed to key partners and leisure providers. I have also attached the consent form that all participants will need to complete in order to take part in the project.
Well done to Karlene for all of the hard work she has put into this project.
