So, NCS has teamed up with some amazing professional football clubs to host its first-ever #NCSMATCHDAY! This is a great chance to show how football and young people can unite communities and make a massive difference together. The first game kicks-off this Saturday (21 Jan) at the Riverside Stadium – a Premier League match-up between Middlesbrough and West Ham.

So how is NCS getting involved? During the pre-game warm up, a group of young Boro fans and NCS grads will get in on the action too! You’ll be able to spot our grads on the pitch alongside the pros – who’ll be rocking our NCS t-shirt before the game starts. Like NCS, the Middlesbrough Football Club Foundation is passionate about social action and making an impact in their community. They help NCS deliver the programme in Middlesbrough and support NCSers throughout their journey as they plan and fundraise for a local charity of their choice.
