New Education and Community Centre opens at Blackpool Football Club

Blackpool FC Community Trust are very proud to officially open our brand-new Education and Community Centre at Bloomfield Road Stadium, prior to the Blackpool FC home game against Fleetwood Town on Saturday 7th December, 2019.

The facility will be opened by Blackpool FC owner Simon Sadler at 1pm and we invite all fans to share in this moment and come and explore our new facilities. FREE activities for fans and their families will take place after the opening, include a Panna cage (for 1v1 football), Table Tennis, arts and crafts and FIFA 20 on Xboxes and PlayStations.

On the day the Trust are also manning a food donation drop-off point, to support Blackpool Food Bank, it is really important that we support this worthwhile cause in our town to make sure that no local residents go hungry during the festive period.

Please bring along any donations, every single item helps.
