StreetGames project case study

The Aston Football Club Development Centre is a StreetGames project in Birmingham that uses doorstep sport. It is based in the heart of a community which has BME population of 77%, much higher than the national average, and it acts as a satellite club for Aston Football Club. The Development Centre uses a large floodlit all-weather pitch on Aston Park, next to Aston Villa FC, and is overseen by a volunteer project co-ordinator who is also closely involved in the running of Aston Football Club.
