McDonald’s hosts Community Football Days for thousands of children
McDonald’s football ambassadors, including football legends Sir Geoff Hurst, Martin Keown, Pat Jennings and Jack Rutter, got stuck into coaching skills, sharing tips and handing out awards. Of course they were on hand to sign autographs and pose for selfies too!
McDonald’s Director of Football, Sir Geoff Hurst said; “Community Football Days are a great way of giving back to the local area. From visiting these clubs, you really get to see the hard work and effort that goes into maintaining these teams. Without volunteers like these, the game simply wouldn’t exist. The days have a real spirit of togetherness and it’s easy to see why they attract so many participants.”
McDonald’s this year celebrates the 15th anniversary of supporting grassroots football across the UK – giving children and young adults of all genders, ages and abilities to play and enjoy football.
