Football fun and family entertainment on offer at Women's Euros roadshow in Rotherham this weekend

ROTHERHAM will kick off England’s Women’s Euro 2022 celebrations this weekend as a national roadshow stops off in the town.

The roadshow at Clifton Park on Sunday will feature former Lionesses star Rachel Unitt and will be a family-orientated, free event which will showcase the best of football, fitness and music.

Visitors to the event, running from 11am to 5pm, will have the chance to learn new football skills and tricks, take part in interactive challenges and meet legends of the game.

Rachel, who will be in attendance at the Rotherham show, was a mainstay of the England side from 2000 to 2013, earning 102 caps.

Anyone wanting to get involved in grassroots football and learn more about other routes to get into the sport, will have an opportunity to do so at the roadshow, with visitors able to try a range of industry related roles such as matchday presenting and interviewing in a special TV studio.

Fans will also have a chance to have their picture taken with the UEFA Women’s Euros 2022 trophy.

Clifton Park will have a special show pitch, where Rotherham United Community Sports Trust will deliver a football showcase and fun taster sessions for young people and there also be displays by freestylers and local dance groups.

The Euros come to Rotherham in July, with the New York Stadium hosting four matches.
