Wembley Stadium: Blacon junior footballers to play on hallowed turf

At the home of football BLACON Youth JFC will be playing Wembley Stadium on Thursday August 12, along with 55 other clubs for The FA/McDonald’s National Football Festival.
As well as playing on the hallowed turf, the young teams will also meet two of English football’s greatest ever strikers Sir Geoff Hurst, ’66 hat trick hero and McDonald’s Head of Football and Michael Owen, one of the highest scoring England players of all time.
The youngsters will have their opportunity to get a footage taken with the two England heroes during their once in a lifetime trip to Wembley Stadium.
The FA/McDonald’s National Football Festival is the pinnacle of McDonald’s Open Day tour which, this year, has seen McDonald’s franchisees partner with local football clubs to host free football open days in communities across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
More than 700 youngsters will take part in the day long event which consists of non competitive games, coaching sessions and McDonald’s inflatables, the perfect chance to young players to improve their techniques.
