The Caledonian Stadium is opening its doors to the community on Sunday 29 September for a fun-packed day of activities.
The Community Day is being staged by the ICT Community Development Trust, a charitable organisation linked to ICT FC to promote community activities.
Doors open at 9 am and all are welcome to the free event which will continue until 4 pm.
The Trust is delighted that first team players will be coming along to the event to meet the fans and sign autographs.
They will also be taking part in a challenge game against all under 12s who have purchased a home, away or ICT25 commemorative strip. This is scheduled for 11.30 am.
If your child is Under 12 and has purchased the home, away or ICT25 full kit then they are eligible to play against the first team if they come wearing their strip on the day!
In total, more than 500 boys and girls from schools and youth teams throughout the city and surrounding area are being invited to take part in 4, 5 and 7-a-side games organised by the SFA on the new stadium pitch, which is attracting great praise for the high standard of the playing surface.
Our Football Fans in Training team will be playing Rangers FC’s FFIT team. This is a group of 35-65 year olds, who have completed the 13 week healthy lifestyle course with their club.
The growing band of older players playing walking football are also taking part in a round-robin competition with teams from Elgin, Dingwall and Skye. This is scheduled for the afternoon.
There will also be fun activities for young children to enjoy, There will be inflatables, beat the goalie, football radar and lots of other activities as well as a visit from Miele’s Ice Cream Parlour.
There are raffle prizes to be won and refreshments on offer along with our club shop being open for anyone wanting to purchase merchandise.
Craig Masterton, Community Development Manager, said: “The Community Day is always a favourite with families and it gives us a chance to showcase the stadium and our wonderful new pitch to the people we work with week in and week out.
“We have a full programme on the pitch and fun off it for all those who can find time to pop along to the stadium. We are delighted that many of the first team squad will be coming along to take part and meet the fans. It promises to be another great day.”
The aims of the Trust are to engage with the wider community and to encourage physical activity, reaching out to the socially excluded and embracing equality and diversity.
Please note: The club asks that those attending should park their cars in the North Car Park and enter the Stadium via the Sports Bar.
