[O]n Friday 1st September 2017 from 7.00pm, females over the age of 18 will be able to enjoy a fun, informal hour-long football session at Whitehaven Amateurs Football Club, before enjoying a glass of prosecco and a buffet to socialise with fellow players.
The event cost £5 to take part in, and include use of facilities, a glass of prosecco, a t-shirt and buffet. Meanwhile, the club’s bar will also be open after the football session have concluded.
With a number of females looking to get involved in football locally following the success and continued rising profile of Women’s Super League and the England women’s national team, Prosecco Soccer is a great opportunity for new and returning players alike to enjoy the beautiful game in a fun, relaxed environment. It is hoped that the sessions in Whitehaven will become a regular occurrence in the near future.
Even if you have not kicked a ball before in your life, you’re more than welcome to get involved in Prosecco Soccer.
Ray Sempill, Football Development Officer at Cumberland Football Association, said: “We started Prosecco Soccer as a format of the game that all women could access, whether they’ve played before or not. The relaxed environment was deliberately put in place to attract anyone who fancies a kick about. Following the success of our initial sessions, we are now looking to host more events across the county.”
