PULSE has been awarded a contract to operate three brand new soccer hubs on behalf of The Football Association, the Sheffield Football Trust and Sheffield City Council.
Pulse will be operating three sites, which have been selected as part of a new grassroots football pilot scheme currently known as the Parklife Project.
The Parklife Project is a new scheme from the FA aimed to get more people involved in football at a grassroots level, underpinned by high quality financially sustainable facilities.
As part of the contract, which is due to commence on April 1 until March 2025, Pulse will be solely responsible for all day-to-day operations of Graves Football Hub (opens April 1), Thorncliffe Football Hub (opens October 1) and Westfield Football hub which will open in 2017. This will include all activity programming, marketing, pricing structures, IT systems and reporting, health and safety and staffing as well as maintenance for each site.
Director of soccer at Pulse Warren Ormerod said: “We are proud to be supporting the FA and Sheffield City Council on this new project.
“With years of experience operating soccer centres in Barrow and Wednesbury, we feel that the expertise of our in-house teams will help us ensure we can provide more opportunities for communities in Sheffield to get involved in football at a grass roots level. We have a proven track record in transforming all-weather pitches into profitable enterprises and we look forward to working closely with the FA and Sheffield City Council.”
