Edukick Manchester to Play at the Home of former Premier League Champions
Edukick are delighted to announce that on Wednesday 24th May 2017 they will take on Sporting Futures USA at Ewood Park, the home of former Premier League Champions Blackburn Rovers.
In another ‘once in a lifetime experience’ for our Edukick players, the team will travel to Ewood Park to take to the hallowed turf of the stadium in an exhibition match with Sporting Futures USA. The team will get to play out a full fixture in the 31,000 all seater stadium, using all the facilities that the first team use on match days and where all the top English teams have played.
Blackburn Rovers FC are the most successful town team ever, having been founder members of the football league, founder members of the Premier league and famously winning the premier league in the 1994/95 season, clinching the title by 1 point from Manchester United.
The Edukick team will take up home for just a few hours in the Stadium, following in the footsteps of some of the Blackburn Rovers stars such as Alan Shearer & Chris Sutton. Having that experience of stadium football is a fantastic opportunity, sampling the world class facilities and walking out the tunnel to the vast stadium.
The opportunity arose as Blackburn Rovers Community trust invited Edukick to play at Ewood Park as part of their end of season activities. It’s an opportunity that thousands of young players and colleges across the UK would love to have, however with the fantastic link Edukick have developed over the years with professional clubs and in particular Blackburn Rovers, its credit to the level and standard of the academy set up at Edukick we are offered such a chance.
All the Edukick players will have that chance to feel like a professional footballer for the day. What a great way to end a fantastic season in Manchester
The game will kick off at 12.30pm on Wednesday 24th May at Ewood Park. Lots of footage of the fixture and pictures will be taken to celebrate the day and for the players to remember the day by.
