PRO STADIUM TOURNAMENTS
Berks Elite FC is very proud to invite all Club players from U7-U16, regardless if already in a team or attending our ACE Programme, to play on the pitch inside a Premier League stadium (Chelsea, Southampton or Crystal Palace).
Last year, we competed at Stamford Bridge and our U12 and U13 Academy teams won the whole event being crowned champions. We have been re-invited again this year due to our great success and partnerships with these professional clubs.
Enter through the players’ entrance and have a team-talk in the home/away changing rooms. Experience the thrill of a matchday as players walk out of the tunnel onto the pitch to the matchday anthem, playing in a tournament on the pitch that footballing heroes play on.
The teams will arrive at the stadium and enter via the players’ entrance. Just like a matchday, spectators, friends and family will be able to watch from the stands and cheer on their young heroes!
2. MANAGERS’ MEETING
Upon entering the stadium and registering, managers/coaches will be give a briefing to ensure all rules are adhered to during the tournament and to ensure everyone’s experience is enhanced. A complimentary matchday programme will be provided, and instructions on how to keep up with the Live Scores from app.
3. TUNNEL LINE-UP & WALKOUT
Feel the nerves of matchday as your team line-up and prepare to walk out onto the pitch. Creating memories and inspiration for all of the young footballers.
As you walk out onto the pitch to the matchday anthem, you take in the huge expanse of the stadium and the cheering spectators as your team name is read out over the PA system.
4. PLAY ON THE PITCH
Score a goal on the same pitch the stars play on, make a key tackle or save. The ultimate experience for all young footballers.
Berks Elite FC mission statement is to ensure that we provide the best possible experience for all teams, no matter their ability.
With a Cup, Plate & Shield structure, we also ensure that teams will play at least half of their matches against as equally matched opposition as possible, meaning that the tournaments are open to teams of ALL ABILITIES.
5. VISIT CHANGING ROOMS
Visit the Home & Away changing rooms, have a team talk and take some team photos to remember your play on the pitch experience with Berks Elite FC.
All players will be presented with a medal on the stage. The winners of each age group will also be presented with a trophy. Another opportunity for a team photo and a big beaming smile from all players as their play on the pitch experience comes to an end.
