​Peter Cooper Motor Group teams up with Sholing FC to kick off a local initiative to make football accessible for Under 19s​

Peter Cooper Motor Group and Sholing FC have teamed up to launch Project 5000, an ambitious collaboration between the two organisations to make watching live football more accessible to everyone, irrespective of age or financial means.

With the generous support of the Peter Cooper Motor Group, Sholing FC is proud to introduce a ground breaking season ticket offer for the 2024/25 season. Every season ticket grants free access for under-19s to all Sholing FC home fixtures and offers two adult tickets for just £5 each!

At the end of this season, Sholing FC will also unveil a deluxe 18x9m marquee, available for free event hire exclusively for adults - whether it's Christmas parties, over-18s birthday celebrations, or wedding receptions.

Paul Doswell, Manager of Sholing FC, said: “Project 5000 enables every child under the age of eighteen to experience the thrill of live football without having to pay and we are determined to offer as many local people the opportunity to watch football.

“The Peter Cooper Motor Group is a local family-run business and shares the same core values of community spirit and family beliefs that define Sholing FC. Its heritage lies in Hedge End where the company’s multi-franchised new car, used car, and aftersales company began. Together, we are not just dreaming of change; we are making it happen. Project 5000 is just the beginning of our journey to transform Sholing FC into the beating heart of our community.”

Darren Cooper, Managing Director at the Peter Cooper Motor Group, added: “We are delighted to kick off this partnership with Sholing FC, breaking down the barriers of expensive football and paving the way for affordable family entertainment. Ten pounds doesn’t buy a lot nowadays, but with Project 5000, an entire family can enjoy the excitement of a live football match!"

"We invite all the local communities to join us in envisioning a future where 5000 young faces light up the stands every week, cheering on their heroes and dreaming of stepping onto the pitch themselves one day. Together, with the help of our local communities, we can make Project 5000 a roaring success!”
