Sport can have a hugely positive effect on people’s lives and when you add in the power of the Accrington Stanley brand it enables us to engage with thousands of people every year. We believe that everybody should have opportunities to play sport regardless of age, gender, race and religion or skill level. Our varied sports projects mean there is something for everybody, whether you are taking your first steps on Stanley Kickers at 2 years old, or taking part in Walking Football in your 80’s, we pride ourselves in creating opportunities for everybody in our community.
