In May 2022, Sports Fun 4 All took a team of five coaches and 14 young people to watch Manchester City v Chelsea in the Women’s FA Cup Final at Wembley Stadium. It was an end to end, exciting match, with City coming out victorious in a 3-2 victory.
The project was made possible by our trusted partner, SEJA, who covered the match tickets, transport and lunch at a pizza restaurant in Wembley before the game.
The most important part of the day was the young people visiting Wembley Stadium and seeing the famous arch. It was the first time for nearly all the young people, and many coaches had ever visited Wembley. For some young people, it was the first time they had ever attended a football match, and what a place to do it.
Experiences like this are crucial for young people. Taking them out of their local area, which they don’t usually do and visiting an iconic venue like Wembley broadens their horizons to realise there are so many opportunities out for them to achieve success in their life. The young people had a fantastic time, and we can’t wait for our next visit to a football match.
