Free activities including Foot Pool and Speed Shot Cage on offer before kick-off
Chester FC, Footgolf Chester and Streetwise Soccer have teamed up to create a feast of football around the Blues’ televised clash with Gateshead on Saturday (12.15pm KO)
Hundreds of youngsters and their families will be cheering on Jon McCarthy’s men from the Lookers Vauxhall Stadium’s South Stand having taking advantage of the Big Club Giveaway II community promotion.
Junior sides from Aston Park Rangers, Blacon Youth Club, Christleton NewScene and Penrhyn Bay Pirates, teams from Delamere Academy, Lache Primary School and St Oswald’s Primary School, and colleagues from the Club’s principal partner MBNA will ensure the ground is buzzing for the game, which is being broadcast live on BT Sport.
Children will be sporting their team’s kits for a colourful parade around the pitch at half-time to showcase junior football in Chester and there’s plenty happening before the game too.
Streetwise Soccer, the UK’s leading provider of unique football themed activities, events & equipment, will invite fans to put their shooting power to the test on the inflatable Speed Shot Cage and demonstrate their football skills to pot balls on the Foot Pool table.
Footgolf Chester’s Hole in One Challenge gives supporters the opportunity to try one of the fastest growing sports in the UK.
There will be prizes and discount vouchers up for grabs and all of the activities are free of charge.
Jim Green, chief executive of Chester FC Community Trust, said: “We’re delighted with the response to the Big Club Giveaway II and we’re very grateful to the Club and the board of directors for giving us this opportunity.
“There promises to be a great atmosphere inside the stadium and we want it to be a fantastic family day out so it’s brilliant to be working alongside Footgolf Chester and Streetwise Soccer as we continue to improve the matchday experience.”
