Education and Futsal Programme Open Day

26 March 2015

Do you love playing football? Are you considering a college course?

We are offering all 16-19 year old students a chance to turn your GCSEs into goals and gain a BTEC National Diploma Qualification while playing Futsal for Burnley Football Club.

Lunched in the summer of 2014, the Education and Futsal Programme provides a perfect pathway into further education and employment in sport & leisure industry.

You could be amongst those to follow the footsteps of our current scholars and represent Burnley FC in the National Futsal League.

Harry Aldred, First Year Scholar said: “I’m glad I chose this course because being given the opportunities to use professional facilities to work and train is helping me grow and improve as a student.

“Getting to travel to different parts of the country to compete against other professional clubs and being provided with full Burnley playing kit is a massive privilege and opportunity that I couldn’t turn down.

“I get the opportunity to ball boy on match days for the first team through this course which is a great experience for me.

“I also get opportunities to volunteer for the club, assisting with sessions based on football through to media.”

Attend an Open Day Event at Turf Moor on the 30th of March at 2pm to find out more. In addition, you will have a chance to win tickets for the Burnley home fixture against Arsenal.
