Fitbaw Played on StreetStadia

Spartans Community Football Academy expands its community outreach programme by purchasing a StreetStadia portable football pitch to use in its Fitbaw project.

The Spartans Community Football Academy (Spartans) is the home of Scotland’s best known amateur football team and enjoys a high profile within the City of Edinburgh and beyond. In recent years the community aspects of the Spartan’s work (including work with youth teams and the wider local community) has been consolidated and expanded.

Spartans is a registered charity whose vision is to provide the community of North Edinburgh with a community inspired facility to help develop people of all ages via sport & recreational activities.  StreetStadia was therefore the obvious choice for the Street Fitbaw project.

Following discussions with the local community police the Spartans, led by Douglass Samuel and his team,  decided that the StreetStadia portable multi-sport system was the ideal package with which to ensure that they could achieve their objectives.

With help from the Scottish Investment Fund the Spartans secured funding and took delivery of a bespoke 18m x 12m StreetStadia complete with floodlights and trailer in Summer 2011.  The official launch was played out in front of a large audience in Pennywell and was seen as a major new, exciting development for local youngsters.

Working closely with local youth agencies the Spartans are using StreetStadia every Friday night under their Street Fit-Baw Programme and delivering real benefits to local communities by providing 2-3 hours for youngsters to play sport in a controlled, safe environment.
