RUCST to host all girls tournament
On Friday 8th April at The AESSEAL New York Stadium we are hosting the UEFA Women’s Euro 2017 qualifying campaign England v Belgium. Tickets for the match are on sale now priced at £5 for adults and £2.50 for children. A family ticket (two adults and two children) is available at £10 and group booking and charter standard discounts apply.
In partnership with the FA, the THIS GIRL CAN campaign and linked with UEFA Women’s Euro 2017 qualifying game, Rotherham United Community Sports Trust are hosting their very own year 6 girls football tournament at Sheffield Hallam University Sports Park during the day before the match and the two finalists will go onto play on the pitch at New York Stadium during the half time interval where they will battle it out to try and become tournament winners.
Jamie Noble, Head of Community said “Hosting an international women’s game at the AESSEAL New York Stadium is not only a great honour as a club, but it give us the opportunity to promote and celebrate the women’s a game. The work Rotherham united community sports trust does in partnership with the Football League Trust, the FA and Sport England has increased participation in football directly with over 600 new women and girls in the last year.”
“We are further engaging with the schools to have a number of girls participating in a tournament on the day of the game to give them a fun event which they don’t have access on a regular basis in schools and then showcase their skills on the pitch at half time to find a winner”
