All 72 EFL Clubs to demonstrate the power of football in changing people’s lives

18 March 2019

All 72 EFL Clubs will come together to highlight the work undertaken to tackle some of society’s biggest issues for the EFL’s Day of the Action 2019...

On Tuesday 19 March, EFL Clubs across the Sky Bet Championship, League One and League Two will each host events designed to showcase the very best of their work to tackle a diverse range of social issues, from homelessness and mental health, to community cohesion and the battle against plastic pollution. 

Up and down the country, managers and players from the EFL’s 72 Clubs will also be attending events to pay special visits to participants and turn their hand to some of the activities taking place throughout the day.   

Southend United will be holding a Premier League Kicks tournament along with an education workshop to show what we can offer participants after they leave school whether that be our BTEC programme or an apprenticeship. There will also be a chance for participants to find out more about the Trust's upcoming coaches day. 

If you are aged 12-19 head down to Waterside Leisure centre from 4:30pm to get involved.    

This is just small sample of some of the fantastic work due to take place during the EFL’s Day of Action by EFL Club Community Organisations - the largest network of sporting charities in the UK.  The EFL and its Clubs invested £80m in communities in 2018.  

EFL Chief Executive, Shaun Harvey said: “The EFL Day of Action brings together all 72 Clubs to highlight the special role they play in enhancing the lives of millions of people around the country.   “The scale of ground-breaking projects across our network of Clubs continues to grow year-on-year and their delivery is integral to our aims of improving lives in a range of areas including inclusion, homelessness, education and health.”
