Blackpool FC Community Trust is delighted to announce an exclusive community usage agreement has been signed with Fylde Coast Academy Trust and Aspire Academy, for evening and weekend use of the school’s sports facilities.
Both the indoor and outdoor sports facilities, previously known as PlayFootball, will now be managed by the Community Trust under the title ‘Aspire Sports Hub’, with an initial plan for community activity to take place from February 2023.
Ashley Hackett, Blackpool FC Community Trust Chief Executive Officer, said,
“For almost 18 months, we have been working strategically to reduce our reliance on others opening their doors for us to deliver our provision, so we are excited to announce this agreement as the first of our facility developments in Blackpool.”
This agreement will allow the Community Trust to reinstate all programmes that were previously delivered from this site, comprising of Walking Football, Sports Camps, Disability Football, Premier League Kicks and others, whilst also increasing the overall offer to the community to include free weight management sessions, adult physical activity, as part of Active Through Football and Move More, and new programmes for local young people, including Tiny Tangerines mini football and the Trust’s new FA affiliated female Emerging Talent Centre.
Further details of all activity will be released very soon, so please keep a lookout on the website and social media.
