The FA Wembley Community Club will bring together local charities, schools and groups

Tuesday 19 Sep 2023
The FA's Wembley Community Group has been launched

We are opening the doors of Wembley Stadium connected by EE to charities, schools and community groups across Brent and the local area with the launch of The FA’s Wembley Community Club. 

The aim of the Wembley Community Club is to bring together, celebrate and support not-for-profit charities, schools and community groups, and provide them with greater access to events and facilities at the national stadium.

It will be free to join for charities, schools and community groups from Brent and the local area, and its members will receive access to a range of exclusive benefits from the FA and Wembley Stadium. 

If you're a member of our Wembley Community Club, you'll be included in exclusive draws for unique Wembley experiences, such as:

  • Complimentary tickets as part of the 50,000 tickets given away for Wembley Stadium matchdays, concerts and other live events across the year
  • Matchday experiences in our Community Box, a 12-seater private box with full hospitality at selected events at Wembley Stadium
  • Complimentary tours of Wembley Stadium
  • Player escort places for children to accompany the players onto the Wembley pitch at the start of the game
  • Community days at Wembley Stadium where you can play on Wembley’s hallowed turf
  • Group trips to St. George’s Park, the England teams’ elite training camp

Members will also be able to apply to use Wembley Stadium for their meetings and event space.

FA Marketing, Communications & Public Affairs Director, Joanna Manning-Cooper, said: "The creation of our Wembley Community Club is part of our ongoing commitment to play an active role in the local area that we serve. Wembley Stadium is at the heart of Brent, and this gives us a unique opportunity to engage with and support our neighbours, offering them unforgettable experiences and memorable moments at the home of English football.

"The community around Wembley Stadium are the lifeblood of the area, and we want to continue to forge great relationships with them – whilst also helping to support the wonderful and valuable work that the charities, schools and community groups across Brent and the local area do to help improve lives."

Earlier this year Wembley Stadium played host to an open Iftar for Ramadan and Vaisakhi celebration which attracted more than 1,600 guests. It also opened up a Community Box, providing groups and charities with the chance to watch selected events at Wembley Stadium. 

We are also exploring the opportunity to launch a similar community programme for groups in the local vicinity of St. George’s Park in Staffordshire.
