by Matt Piper in Leicester, United Kingdom

FSD Community Interest Company (CiC - not for profit) are delighted to announce the redevelopment of Mowmacre Sports Ground, a treasure that we have secured on a long term lease from the Leicester City Council. Work is underway (see our video) but we need your help to deliver all of the exciting plans that we have for your local community.

Empowering Young People 

The FSD journey began in 2017, with a vision that remains today: to empower young people to achieve more in all aspects of life. Initially linking our further education programmes with football, we realised that our biggest strength is the power of connection with young people (of all ages) and helping them to discover their pathway in life. This could still be football, but by getting to know each individual we understand that there are so many more possibilities!  

Diverse Community Hub 

Hence, our redevelopment of Mowmacre Sports Ground into a diverse Community HUB that offers something for all young people and their families. This includes BTEC qualifications, community sports, primary and secondary alternative provision, youth football teams, dance, fitness, martial arts, boxing, music, podcasting, broadcasting and enriching school holiday camps and food programs. Our goal is simple yet powerful: To help each young individual discover their pathway, igniting a belief in their potential to achieve their dreams. 

Young People Finding Their Passion and Pathway 

We understand the reality in the current environment that there are many less desirable paths that young people can be attracted into, such as drink, drugs, violence, crime and anti-social behaviour. The Mowmacre Sports Ground redevelopment is the antidote. We believe in the transformative power of individuals finding their passion – and are offering positive pathways for young people that bring together an invaluable sense of belonging, responsibility and purpose.  These are crucial ingredients for well-being and progress for each individual and the local community. 

This space is not just about sports and creativity, it's about community, connection and shared growth. We're here to forge lasting bonds, nurture ideas and collaborate to enrich the community. 

Our founders, Matt Piper and Owen Johnson, both former professional footballers, embody the spirit of transformation we wish to inspire. Our personal journeys from struggle to success through their passion for football, fuel our commitment to guiding the next generation along their own paths of discovery and growth. 

Our team, many of whom have grown from past participants to mentors within the FSD organisation - along with a dedicated army of volunteers ,are committed to making a positive impact. We're all about inclusivity and genuinely caring about each individual that we work with. 

Let’s Do This Together

As we look ahead to the development of this site, we see more than just facilities. We envision a vibrant hub where each visit leaves you inspired and more connected to your community. The FSD team is friendly, approachable and eager to meet you. So, please, come by, say hello and let's begin on this exciting journey together to create something truly special for Mowmacre Hill. Together, we can build a brighter, more positive future for the community, especially for the youngsters it serves.
