Foundation Showcase At Rugby World Cup Fan Zone – 26 Sept
Newcastle United Foundation will take over the Rugby World Cup Fan Zone opposite the stadium to showcase its work ahead of the Newcastle United v Chelsea match at St James Park on Saturday 26th September.
The Foundation will showcase its Football Development programmes during the three hour slot before the game as well as highlighting many of the outstanding engagement programmes the charity delivers across the city.
Participants from the youth visually impaired team, the Cerebral Palsy team and the DS Active teams will take the first slot in front the crowds, showing off the skills they’ve learnt from the Foundation coaches, including the FA’s first qualified blind Assistant Coach, Paul Matheson.
The girls teams will then take centre stage with the Under 11’s and Under 13’’s before a small sided tournament between Foundation sides completes the hat-trick of live action.
Newcastle United Foundation Football Development Manager, Giles Sandercock, said: “Having a presence in the Rugby World Cup Fanzone before the Chelsea match gives us a great opportunity to engage with fans on their way to the game, but also to showcase our work to a new audience. Our participants are so excited to have the chance to show off their skills and to help promote the work we do around the community.
“We really hope that as many people as possible come and show their support – we’re very proud of the hard work and commitment of our teams and we would love for them to have a massive crowd cheering them on! We’ll also have plenty of staff on hand to tell people how they can get involved with us in the future.”
