By funding new equipment and helping them make connections, Active Cheshire enabled Fermain Youth Centre to organise a football tournament that inspired more youngsters to get into the sport.
The i-Macc World Cup Football Competition saw eight under-12 teams from across the whole of Cheshire and High Peak come together to play under the colours of a country. The shirts were supplied and sponsored by a local business and the Mayor of Macclesfield handed out the medals and the trophy.
The tournament showcased the equipment and the centre to a wide audience and due to its success, the event will continue year on year, increasing the amount of teams it can cater for. The investment in equipment has also facilitated a partnership between the centre and Macclesfield Basketball, who now deliver weekly training sessions.
