The Hampshire FA Community Trust successfully hosts a number of match day experiences.

The Hampshire FA Community Trust successfully hosted a Southampton FC Match day Experience which included tickets for the Southampton v Leicester football game and a pre-match buffet at Everest Cuisine in Southampton on Saturday 8th November 2014. 113 people attended the Match day experience which raised a whopping £2,201 for the Hampshire FA Community Trust.

£1,000 has since been donated to Walking Football clubs across the Hampshire county and as a relatively new concept of football, financial sustainability is paramount to the continuous growth and developments we have seen across Hampshire. The funding will support 20 Hampshire FA licensed walking football clubs currently operating in the County.

Discussing the successes of the day, Hampshire FA Chief Executive Neil Cassar says: 

"We received lots of interest in the first Southampton FC match day experience run by the Trust and we were delighted to have 113 in attendance for the Leicester City game.  We also held a 50/50 draw on the day which contributed to raising over £2200 for the Trust and its objectives.

We thank all those who supported the event and we are grateful to our friends at Everest Cuisine for hosting the pre-match meal at their excellent restaurant in Southampton.

We are now planning the next Southampton FC match day experience event for the Liverpool game on 21 February 2015 and promotion will begin once we are aware which Premier League games have been selected for live TV coverage as this may have an impact on the date and kick off time"
