Emirates And Arsenal Football Club Have Joined Forces To Open An Arsenal Soccer School, Where Children will Learn How To ‘Play The Arsenal Way’

Emirates, the award-winning international airline, and Arsenal Football Club have joined forces to open an Arsenal Soccer School, where children of all nationalities and backgrounds will have the opportunity to learn how to ‘Play the Arsenal Way’.

The Arsenal Soccer School will be permanently based at 7he Sevens, Emirates own sporting venue, and will offer fantastic training opportunities with Arsenal’s UEFA Licensed Soccer Schools Coaches. The school is open to boys and girls of all abilities aged between five and 18, with classes available in both Arabic and English.

No matter which team students support, or whether they live in Dubai or are visiting, the aim of the school is to get children active and having fun while learning to play football the Arsenal way. The emphasis will be on playing as a team to produce imaginative and skilful football, similar to the style created by Arsenal club manager Arsène Wenger, who is globally renowned for his ability to nurture young talent.

His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive ofEmirates Airline & Group, said: “As a long-term sponsor of Arsenal, Emirates is very excited about developing the relationship further on a grassroots level.

“Arsenal has demonstrated its commitment to the region by partnering us to launch the tried-and-tested Arsenal Soccer Schools concept for the benefit of the entire community. We have no doubt it will help the UAE to develop its football talent and who knows, we may even find a local star”.

Ivan Gazidis, Chief Executive Officer for Arsenal Football Club, is focused on building the club’s global brand. He said: “There is already a great appetite for football within the Middle East and we are pleased to be partnering Emirates in this venture to bring the Arsenal Soccer Schools experience to another key destination.”

Wenger is also firmly behind the new school. He said: “We invest heavily in developing and nurturing our younger players to ensure that they reach their full potential and the same applies to our Arsenal Soccer Schools.

“The training programme in our Arsenal Soccer Schools has been developed based on the same principles we teach our first-team players: developing young players’ technical skills and passion for the game to ensure they become the best players they possibly can. We also put a great emphasis on enjoyment and learning the right spirit of football, regardless of the ability or background of the youngsters.”

In addition to the children based in the UAE, Emirates will be opening up the opportunity to youngsters from around the world. With non-stop flights to Dubai with Emirates from six continents, learning from world-class Arsenal coaches at a magnificent training facility could not be easier.

More than 1000 children each year will be trained at 7he Sevens, with the first 10-week term kicking off on 5th October. Each session will be between 60 to 75 minutes in duration with the cost of the training depending on the amount of sessions booked per week.

The New npower Urban Cricket Facility In King Edward Park, Nottingham, Has Opened With A Huge Six From England Cricket International Stuart Broad Marking The Opening

npowercricketThe new facility, which has transformed a disused area of the park, is the fourth of five purpose-built cricket facilities to be opened across the country as part of the Urban Cricket initiative. It provides a permanent space for children in Nottingham to learn and practice their cricket skills, turning them into possible stars of the future.

In addition to the facility, five school playgrounds in the Nottingham area have also been redeveloped into Urban Cricket Zones. These zones will help children with an interest in cricket to practice and develop their skills.

Working in partnership with Nottingham City Council and the Nottinghamshire County Cricket Board, the development of the facility and its five supporting zones, creates a tiered community development programme with a clear route for children to follow, from learning basic skills all the way up to playing club cricket.

Stuart Broad said: “It’s fantastic to see initiatives such as npower Urban Cricket giving youngsters the chance to get out there and play the game. It’s going to make a real difference to the local community and will hopefully produce plenty more first class cricketers for Notts.” 

Chris Broad, Stuart’s father and an ex-Nottinghamshire and England cricketer himself, who also attended the opening, commented: “The npower Urban Cricket facilities are a great way of developing a legacy for the game and allowing children in the area to practice their skills.”

Councillor Dave Trimble, Portfolio Holder for Communities, Leisure and Culture said: “We’re thrilled to be a part of this fantastic cricket initiative and can’t wait to see local young people making the most of the facilities and developing their game. Nottingham has a great tradition for cricket with Trent Bridge central to our sporting landscape. Let’s hope this will ensure some more home grown talent playing for Notts soon.”

npower Urban Cricket, a grassroots project run in conjunction with the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), was launched in 2006 with one clear goal – to get more children playing cricket. Since its launch, npower and the ECB have distributed over 60,000 Urban Cricket kits to children in the UK. The scheme plans to distribute a further 10,000 kits in the summer of 2009.

More recently the focus for Urban Cricket has shifted to the development of five facilities with five Urban Cricket zones in school playgrounds surrounding each of the facilities. The first facility was opened by Monty Panesar in South London in August 2007. The second, in Sheffield, was opened by Ryan Sidebottom in April 2008 and the third, in Birmingham, by Ian Bell in August 2008. The fifth and final facility in Manchester will be opened by James Anderson later this month.
