Plans in place to do a similar event next year...Fleetwood Town’s family fun day was a huge success last weekend with over 2,500 people in attendance on a glorious Saturday at Highbury Stadium.
It was an event of all ages, with football, live music and a variety of different types of entertainment on show.
The day kicked off with Fleetwood Town Juniors taking to the field of play and competing in a number of mini football matches.
The adults then took centre stage to play the beautiful game as part of a legends match with a number of former FTFC players involved; our chief executive Steve Curwood even tried his luck as a goalkeeper.
After the football had finished, the attention turned to the stage with live music being played until 8pm. The evening concluded in our ever popular Jim’s Sports Bar.
The Club has received some fantastic feedback from those who attended.
Head of Commercial Martin Booker said: “It was a fantastic day in every way possible. The weather was great, we had over 2,500 people through the doors and everybody had a great time.
“The Chairman is keen for us to give something back to the community and this event will become an annual thing that the whole of Fleetwood can look forward to.
“Fleetwood Town Juniors orchestrated the junior football tournament whilst we arranged the legends game and all the family entertainment on the day with many local businesses supporting.
“The live bands were brilliant so we thank everyone who played their part. We are already looking forward to next year’s event!
