Players On Hand To Meet Young FansHenry Cameron and Luke Higham put their FIFA 17 skills to the test on Saturday when they attended the launch of the Community Trust's new GAMEroom.
Accessible every home match day at Bloomfield Road, the GAMEroom, in partnership with GAME, provides young children and young adults (aged between five and 18) with the opportunity to play the latest football release on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, as well as participate in community competitions and tournaments.
Manvir Rai, Communications Officer for the Community Trust, said: “I’m delighted we have set up this programme for young adults and young children. It gives them the chance to meet new friends whilst playing new games on the latest consoles. It also gives people the chance to learn more about what we do.”
Blackpool GAME Store Manager Will van Duyvenvoorde is delighted with the partnership with Blackpool FC Community Trust and added: "The community is at the heart of everything we do at GAME, and to forge a new partnership with Blackpool FC Community Trust in order build and grow both communities, is something we are really excited about. This gives us a chance to connect with our community away from the store, to build new relationships for both Game and Blackpool FC Community Trust, and of course to support and promote our local football team, Blackpool FC."
For further information about the GAMEroom, which is open from 1pm-3pm prior to every home game at Bloomfield Road, please can Manvir on 01253 348691.
