Xtreme Events supporting U's Soccer Centres
AROUND 15 years ago Daniel Chillingworth Signed a Professional contract with Cambridge United. Today he is back to where it all began signing a contract as a Businessman.
Cambridge United are delighted to announce a one year sponsorship deal with Dan’s thriving business, Xtreme Events, for the U’s youth development initiative - Soccer Centres. Dan’s company offer Corporate events, Stag & Hen dos and Children’s Birthday parties with a difference. The company’s flagship bubble football event, Xtreme Soccer is a UK sensation, and is a perfect match with Cambridge United’s ethos of combining sport and fun activity.
Commenting on the partnership, Dan said: “I'm delighted to be back at the club where it all began for me, Cambridge were the club that gave me my chance when I was 17 years old, so its extra special for me to get involved, and to be able to give something back. The deal is a perfect fit, we are desperate to get kids playing sports again instead of sitting at home on their Xbox or PlayStation and with the twists we add to our games we think that the children of Cambridgeshire will embrace what Xtreme Events has to offer. We are looking forward to showcasing our portfolio on the hallowed turf as part of the half-time entertainment for the 2015-16 season."
Cambridge United Soccer Centres are open-access evening coaching sessions for boys and girls aged 6 – 12. The coaching is led by professional Youth Development coaches and offers opportunities for particularly talented individuals to join the CUFC gifted & talented programme.
However, the programme isn’t just about talent identification as Football Development Manager James Cutting explains: "The main aim of the Soccer Centres is to offer our first-ever open-access evening football programme. It is open to all abilities and offers a professional environment where the children will develop in many ways. Of course their football skill will progress, but we’re more interested in keeping children active, developing their knowledge of topics such as diet & nutrition, hydration, respect and sportsmanship, whilst having lots of fun along the way and it’s these aspects of the programme which means that it fits so well with Xtreme Soccer. Daniel is a great advocate of all of the above and we look forward to working with Xtreme Soccer’’.
Plans for the partnership include an exciting dual-branded birthday party package and opportunities for U’s fans to enter a competition to play Zorb Football as part of the match-day half –time entertainment, with proceeds going to Orchid Cancer.
