BFCitC participants head to 2018 PL/BT Disability Football Festival at Etihad Campus

Participants from 23 Premier League and English Football League clubs will take to the indoor pitch at Manchester City’s Etihad Campus on Tuesday 17 July for the Premier League and BT Disability Football Festival.

 

Youngsters who regularly participate in Burnley FC in the Community’s Premier League and BT Disability programme sessions will have the opportunity to play football and learn new skills as part of the annual event, which aims to inspire disabled people through sport.

 

The day, which will be hosted by BT’s Jake Humphrey and Abi Griffiths, will be split into two and will see young people take part in a skills challenge in the morning and then compete in a pan-disability football tournament in the afternoon, all whilst proudly wearing Burnley FC kit.

 

BT Ambassador Jake Humphrey said: “I’m really excited to be involved with the Premier League and BT Disability programme and have loved seeing the progress that’s been made since we launched it two years ago. I look forward to meeting everyone at the event – perhaps even having a kick around too!”
