Pulse Soccer awarded prestigious contract with Liverpool City Council to bring The FA’s ‘Parklife Project’ to the city
Following a rigorous tender process, Pulse Soccer – the dedicated division of the Pulse Group set up to improve standards and affordability for users of community football facilities – has been awarded a contract with Liverpool City Council to bring the FA’s ‘Parklife Project’ to the city.
Pulse Soccer will operate four brand new soccer hubs on behalf of Liverpool City Council, The Football Association, The Football Foundation, Premier League and Sport England. Together they will be aiming to create a sustainable grassroots model for the city and improve the experience for those participating in grassroots football.
The Parklife Project is an FA scheme aiming to get more people involved in the football at a grassroots level, underpinned by high quality financially sustainable facilities. Pulse Soccer has been working with The FA, Sheffield City Council and Sport England over the past year to operate three soccer hubs and has already seen huge successes with over 34,000 more people now engaged in the new hubs.
Pulse Soccer will oversee all activity programming, marketing, pricing structures, IT systems and reporting, health and safety as well as maintenance. Pulse Soccer together with their dedicated operational partner, Leisure United will be responsible for all day-to-day operations of Jericho Lane Football Hub in the south of the city, Simpson Ground Football Hub in the south east, Jeffrey Humble Football Hub in the north east and Heron Eccles Football Hub, also in the south east of the city.
As well as all four sites including new state of the art soccer facilities, Jericho Lane Football Hub and Jeffery Humble Football Hub will be home to brand new gym facilities which will be kitted out with the latest equipment from Pulse Fitness. All four sites will be up and running by the summer of 2018.
“We are proud to have been appointed by Liverpool City Council on this second landmark project to develop high class soccer facilities sport,” says Warren Ormerod, Director of Soccer for Pulse. “This is a huge testament to the knowledge and expertise of our in-house team. We’ve already seen fantastic success across Sheffield, with more people getting involved in football at a grassroots level. We hope to build on that success across the city of Liverpool and look forward to working closely with The FA, Liverpool City Council, Sport England and Leisure United in order to get more people involved in the sport.
