Summer Football On The Dock

Albert Dock Football

Albert Dock Liverpool teams up with Everton in the Community and the LFC Foundation to offer free football coaching sessions to visitors this summer

Albert Dock Liverpool is to open an artificial football pitch this summer, giving visitors to the iconic attraction the opportunity to brush up on their football technique in a series of free, fun, inclusive, football coaching sessions.

From July 24-August 11 the North West’s most visited free tourist attraction will host Summer Football on the Dock, involving coaches from Everton in the Community and the LFC Foundation demonstrating the tricks of the sport at Mermaid Courtyard (next to Tate Liverpool).

Boys and girls of all ages and abilities are invited to drop by and join in on the action – with no pre-booking required.

Clare Rawlinson, marketing manager, Albert Dock Liverpool, said:

“The summer is about being outdoors, enjoying the great weather and being active, and we know our pitch and free coaching programme will be a hit with our visitors – whether a football fan or not, and whatever team they support!

“It is brilliant to partner up with EitC and the LFC Foundation, and support their great work within the local community encouraging health, well-being and sport development. Here’s to an action-packed few weeks of skills and drills on Liverpool’s iconic waterfront.”

Alongside basic skills and drills, EitC will also provide sessions involving its disability team who will display their football technique in a series of demos, as well as the chance to experience what it is like to play football without your sight - testing your senses and skills to the maximum! There will also be the chance to learn from the Everton Ladies and the Ladies’ coaching staff who will be holding regular sessions to inspire and engage girls with a passion for the beautiful game. And making football accessible for everyone, come and try out the sport’s newest craze - walking football!

This is a great chance to grab yourself some bite-size sessions of speed, agility and quickness (SAQ) drills, and basic dribbling techniques with LFC Foundation!
