Meet the Players – July 27th from 12:00

Meet the Players – Saturday July 27th, 2024

Coleraine FC is hosting a very special Meet the Players event at the Showgrounds on Saturday July 27th……

As we continue to build towards the new season, our first with a full-time squad, we are keen to make sure that fans have great access to the real stars of the show, the players. On Saturday July 27th, fans are invited to attend a very special open day where they can have a behind the scenes look at the stadium, meet the players and, of course meet Benny the Bannsider. Our younger fans can even get a chance to play on the pitch. Everything starts at 12:00 noon.

CEO, Simon Magee commented, “We are keen to introduce the players to the fans and, just as importantly, the fans to the players. We also want to see the place full of kids, so we are offering the chance for a hundred children to play on the pitch. It’s nothing formal, just an old-fashioned kick-about with some of our youth coaches around but I am certain the players will join in too. We might even get Benny in goal again for his world-famous penalty shoot-out.”

The Meet the Players event is open to everyone, but we have to restrict the numbers who can play on the pitch at any time so that is limited to the first 100 children (12 years and under) who reserve their place at

The day will be completed when Coleraine face Annagh United in a pre-season friendly.

Please note: the opportunity to Play on the Pitch is an informal kick about not an organised coaching session, so whilst we will have coaches on the pitch to keep an eye on everyone and keep them safe, we ask parents to keep an eye on them too.
