FC Halifax Town can offer a truly memorable FC Halifax Town Match Day Experience for your junior club.

For the third consecutive season we are running this successful initiative aimed at grass roots clubs with players in the under 11 (school year 6) to under 14 (school year 9) age groups invited to apply.

Arriving at the magnificent Shay Stadium alongside 2,000 other members of the Shaymen your team will receive:

  • An FC Halifax Town training session prior to the game
  • A Q&A with a first team player
  • Form a guard of honour as the teams enter the pitch
  • Ball boy throughout the game

With support from the National League Trust and community partners, RSA there is no cost to participate squads of up to 16 players and 2 coaches will receive free entry to the fixture.  Any additional adults, coaches or siblings will be entitled to concession price entry.

See what coaches and parents have had to say:

Neil Grant, Warley Rangers U11s: I just wanted to say a massive thank you on behalf of the coaches, parents and players of Warley Rangers under 11s for a fantastic day on Saturday. The boys got so much out of the coaching session, speaking to Ross and Jack and really enjoyed being part of the action with the guard of honour and ball boying. The feedback we have had has been extremely positive.”

Debbie Midgley, Greetland Juniors U14s: “Many, many thanks for inviting Greetland Juniors to your match experience on Saturday. They thoroughly enjoyed it – thank you.”

Andy Commons, Greenland Juniors U11s: “Just a quick note to say thank you for the giving the boy’s the opportunity of the match experience on Saturday, they absolutely loved it.  Nick and the guys were great with the boys, they are a credit to your team.”
