Beacon of Light, Sunderland’s state of the art community sports facility, has launched a brand-new social media campaign celebrating some of personalities which make up 5-a-side teams.
Every week, thousands of amateur players take to 3G pitches up and down the country to play the beautiful game, including on the six state of the art pitches overlooking the Wear at the Beacon of Light.
From the ‘Almost Turned Pro’ who claims to have once had trials at Sunderland AFC to the ‘Veteran’ who is an expert in using their vast experience or the ‘Latecomer’ who is always stuck in traffic, every team has a player who fits one of six the profiles.
The Beacon is asking football fans – who’s who on your team? Let people know by tagging and sharing with your mates.
The campaign kicks off on Monday 27 May on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, and you can get involved by tagging your team mates then booking one of the Beacon’s floodlit outdoor pitches online.
Whether you’re looking for a kickabout with friends or a training venue for your club, the Beacon of Light has the perfect pitch for you.
5-a-side pitches are available from as little as £40 per pitch per hour, or you could join the SAFC Fans League or SAFC InBusiness League for as little as £30 per team per game.
As the home of the Sunderland AFC’s official charity, all profits from the Beacon of Light are donated to the Foundation of Light to improve the lives of children, families and adults across the north east.
