YOUNG people with ambitions to work in the football industry are being offered a free hands-on insight thanks to an FA Youth initiative in association with MFC Foundation and the North Riding County FA.
Your Game will be Rolled-out in three areas of the country, with Teesside the first. A two-day course for 14-24-year-olds who would like to learn about roles in football outside of playing will run on Sunday April 1st and Monday 2nd.
“We’re very proud to be running the first of these sessions,” says Lynsey Edwards, head of MFC Foundation. “This a great chance for young people to learn about the game from a different angle to that of playing. There’s so much more that people can get involved with and I would encourage anyone with an interest in the gamer to come along.”
Participants will have the opportunity to meet experts from all levels of the game and try roles such as refereeing, coaching, club administration, media and marketing and more.
Your Game will be held at MFC Foundation’s Herlingshaw Centre on Normanby Road and will run from 10am to 4pm each day.
The event is free to attend and those who are there will be provided with England Football tops and free lunch. There is a bus service for those who may need support with transportation to and from the event.
Your Game is the perfect opportunity to explore all aspects of the football workforce and find your next step.
