Community Kick Off
While football club Arsenal may have said goodbye to its 93-year-old famous stadium at Highbury on May 7th to move up the road to a new modern one, there's still a chance for fans to play at the ground through Maccabi GB.
The Jewish sporting organisation is holding its annual Community Kick Off at the famous stadium on 28th May.
A series of youth events including 6-a-side tournaments will be played in the following age ranges, Under 9's, Under 11's, Under 13's and Under 15's.
Adult players will also be taking part in their own games at the stadium.
Cost to take part for the under 15's is £80 for each squad.
"Around 250 players will be taking part and hopefully a similar number of spectators," said Daniel Morris, major events & communications coordinator at Maccabi GB. "Community Kick Off is a unique sporting event, which unites the Jewish Community."
