A home game: World of Football kicks off at Marine Drive
World of Football are delighted to announce the opening of their new state of the art flagship football venue at Marine Drive today. It’s a welcome return to the North Edinburgh area where the Demarco family first set up the Jubilee Ice cream and Fish & Chip shop in 1935.
Paul Demarco, Managing Director of World of Football said: “This is a great opportunity for us to expand our brand further in Edinburgh. We have enjoyed a huge amount of success with the first World of Football at the Corn Exchange and we are looking forward to getting involved with the local community. Our family business originated from Granton in the 1930’s and we are delighted to be coming back to an area of Edinburgh that is so close to our hearts.”
He continued: “The centre will serve as a great addition to Edinburgh’s sporting facilities and give a greater number of locals the opportunity to play on our state of the art and totally unique pitches. The centre has been designed to a high facility specification for footballers who may come from a professionals or amateur background, so we can cater for all levels of footballing expertise.
“The venue has taken 22 months to build and complete, and at a cost of approximately £3m it promises to be one of the finest indoor and outdoor facilities in Scotland. The new centre will also see the creation of over 20 jobs.”
World of Football are keen to attract corporates and individuals as ‘Bond Holders’ which guarantees a weekly timeslot and the organisation will work with Youth Football Association, SFA, local clubs and community groups to ensure they can enjoy the facility.
The centre offers:
- 6 state-of-the-art dome covered six-a-side pitches
- 2 uncovered outdoor seven or eight -a-side academy pitches
- 2 uncovered six-a-side pitches
- Changing room facilities
- Meeting rooms to hire for corporate clients and Party Rooms for kids parties.
