In 2015, Sport England awarded Nottingham the UK’s first ‘City of Football’ title. This two-year scheme was about getting new people into football. As part of the project, the GameCity festival staged ‘GameChangers’, where 10 videogame designers were invited to create ten NEW real-life versions of the beautiful game, for everyone to try out and take away.

For the first time, Wembley Park will host GameChangers for a weekend of special football activities for all to enjoy. These will include:

  • Rolling exhibition matches with amateur teams and groups playing the new games
  • Workshops in which young people and community groups will be invited to create their own versions of football

When: 12-6pm, Friday 11 June - Saturday 12 June

Where: Olympic Way, Wembley Park

Price: Free

We need you

We are recruiting local football teams to participate in GameChangers. Teams must consist of at least 5 players and be available for 2 hours, between 12-6pm on 11 or 12 June. Matches will be short (10-20 minutes each) so there will be plenty of breaks. To get involved, click here email Josh McNorton, WP Cultural Director.
