Strategy Event HERO

Strategy consultation event held

Consultation events to discuss the future of Sussex football

Last week we held the first of two Strategy Consultation Events, as we seek to canvas feedback from across the county to help form our strategy going forwards.

Held at Horam Park Golf Club, the event saw stakeholders from across Sussex football come together to give their thoughts on a number of important topics around the future of the beautiful game.

We are currently in the process of creating our grassroots football strategy for the next five years, and as such, these events are vital as we seek to understand the views of the Sussex football community.

The event was the first of two that are taking place this month, with the next taking place on Wednesday 17 January 2024 at Forest School, Comptons Lane, Horsham, RH13 5NT.

Doors will open at 6:30pm for a 7:00pm start and close at 9:30pm, with informal discussions until 10:00pm. The events will be facilitated by members of our Senior Management Team and Board of Directors.

Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. If you would like to attend one of these events, please indicate your intention to do so by completing the form below.
