E20 Football Foundation

E20 Football Foundation

Weʼre raising £7,000 to continue the only community football academy based on the doorstep of the Olympic Park.

We did it!

On 24th Feb 2017 we successfully raised £280 with 10 supporters in 56 days

Having spent years within the professional football club structure I envisaged my children to be part of an academy/foundation where they did not need to pay or travel miles to play the beautiful game. The model for free football coaching/matches/tournaments and trials was created in the region of the previous Athletes Village used during the London 2012 Olympic Games. Having now successfully run the academy for over 2 years, I have been able to schedule free coaching, matches and tournaments every day of the week to all ages, develop a membership base of 350, create a prestigious annual tournament with local employers, provide Premier League trials to elite members, provide coaching qualifications to those that live in the community and then employ community coaches. With funding being reduced, I am hoping for the E20 Football Foundation legacy and the positive influence it has already had on such a focused community to continue but also set the pathway for integration in further community development through the sport of football.
