Falcons to hold two #FootballPeople weeks with Farenet
London Falcons have partnered with Farenet to throw open our training doors for two weeks and offer free sessions to newcomers wanting to get back into football.
On Tuesday October 10th and 17th we will be at our usual home of Kennington Park from 8pm to 9pm, delivering quality football sessions for our existing members and anyone who would like to come down for a taster.
The sessions have been made possible by funding from Farenet as part of a football focused social campaign aimed at tackling all barriers that exclude people and communities. Between 5 and 19 October, professional clubs and players, the grassroots and amateur side of the game and thousands of others on social media will celebrate the power of football to unite people and celebrate the difference.
Fare network Executive Director Piara Powar said: “The Football People weeks is an important period for European football as it brings together all of those who watch, play or run the sport and supports inclusion and diversity across its structures while challenging intolerance and discrimination.
“This is a big and growing movement, our target is to reach 100,000 people directly taking in activities. We encourage grassroots organisations to join the
campaign and get involved with their own activities. London Falcons is part of this movement and we are happy to rely on them to celebrate it with us.”
In 2016, more than 2,000 activities were organised in Europe. Over 100,000 people directly involved.
Matthew Hall, Chairman of London Falcons, said: "We have seen ever-growing numbers of gay, bisexual and straight players joining our club over the past year. They've enjoyed the really inclusive, diverse approach we have to football. We have a great location that's convenient to get to from all over London and we welcome more newcomers during the Football People weeks."
