Play on the Pitch 2014

by Stuart Vose

Live the life of a pro at exclusive training-ground event.

‘Play on the Pitch 2014’ gives you the chance to take a unique look behind the scenes at the Academy of Light.

The club are throwing open the doors to their spectacular training HQ in late May, with packages allowing private teams to enjoy a full game on the Academy’s prestigious show pitch.

Games are being scheduled for 22-25 May 2014 inclusive.

Priced at just £1,250 + VAT per squad of 15 players, the ‘Play on the Pitch’ experience includes a warm-up session and a 60-minute game with referee and assistants.

But the package is so much more than just a match – enjoy use of the players’ dressing room as the atmosphere builds prior to kick-off.

You’ll also have a team photo taken for posterity and a presentation will be made to the man of the match afterwards.

Following the action out of the pitch, players will have time to refuel with a post-game buffet in the players’ refectory.

The man of the match from each game will be entered into the running for the golden boot trophy, awarded to the best player across the four days.

All players will also receive a tour of the Academy of Light, which is usually off-limits, allowing a further glimpse behind the scenes.

To take advantage of this exclusive opportunity, call the sales team on 0871 911 1555 or email

Please advise at time of booking if you wish to play against a specific team.
