The clubs chosen to host McDonald’s Community Football Day have been announced today, with six Scottish FA Quality Mark clubs picked for the grassroots football showcases.
Edinburgh South FC, Dyce Community Sports Trust, Carbrain, Blantyre Soccer Academy, Drumchapel United and Steins Thistle have been confirmed for the Community Football Days between June and September, in which clubs organise open events that encourage existing members and their families to participate along with new members from the local community.
The events at Edinburgh South FC and Dyce Community Sports Trust will be the showcase events that will include a football ambassador and McDonald’s inflatable games.?
Scottish FA’s Head of Regional Development Andy Gould: ‘The Community Football Open Days provide an opportunity for our clubs to open their doors to the wider community and inspire new people to get involved in our game. ??
“These days are about showing the community what the football club can provide and the benefit that playing football and helping at a club can provide. We hope that as many people as possible can get involved and make these days a fantastic family occasion."?
