All 72 EFL Clubs will come together to highlight the work undertaken to tackle some of society’s biggest issues for the EFL’s Day of the Action 2019, to help demonstrate the power of football in changing people’s lives.
On Tuesday 19th March, EFL Clubs across the Sky Bet Championship, League One and League Two will each host events designed to showcase the very best of their work to tackle a diverse range of social issues, from homelessness and mental health, to community cohesion and the battle against plastic pollution. Up and down the country, managers and players from the EFL’s 72 Clubs will also be attending events to pay special visits to participants and turn their hand to some of the activities taking place throughout the day.
At Stevenage FC Foundation, there will be a focus on our community based activities, which range from Walking Football, Introduction to Exercise and Falls Prevention classes, women and girls sessions and our Junior Kickers programme. As well as a look into our apprenticeship programme giving young coaches an opportunity to begin their employment journey working as part of the Foundation.
There will also be some special guests heading along to the sessions to get an insight into our work.
EFL Chief Executive, Shaun Harvey said:
“The EFL Day of Action brings together all 72 Clubs to highlight the special role they play in enhancing the lives of millions of people around the country. “The scale of ground-breaking projects across our network of Clubs continues to grow year-on-year and their delivery is integral to our aims of improving lives in a range of areas including inclusion, homelessness, education and health.”
