FC United of Manchester is holding its FC Family Fun Day on Sunday 27 June on the proposed site for the club’s new stadium in Newton Heath. Local residents will also get a chance to see and discuss ideas with the football club’s officials for the design of the stadium.

Three even-aside competitions for boys and girls, penalty shoot outs and experienced football and Gaelic football coaches and trampolines will be available for people of all ages. Bouncy castles, rides and a Kids’ Creative Corner for children will add to the fun.

Club organiser, Vinny Thompson says: “We set up FC United because we feel football should be part of the community and fun. We look forward to the day when we can hold such events here inside our new stadium.”

FC United stalls, Co-op, Credit Union and The Manchester College stalls and state of the art displays will be situated in the sports hall to introduce the club, its cooperative ethos and work in the communities, to local people.

The event on Ten Acres Lane starts at 11am and finishes at 2.30pm.
