I am thrilled to announce that I have been invited to sing at the opening of FC United of Manchester's new stadium Moston Community Stadium when it opens in 2014. The 5000 seat venue will cost the club £5.5 million to build. More than £2m of the money has come from a pioneering share scheme. Other partners include Sport England, the Football Foundation, Manchester council and the Manchester College.
The club hopes to move into Moston for the start of the 2014–15 season.
For more information about the build, see it's wikipedia page:
I was invited to sing at the New Stadium after putting on an opera evening called "Access all Arias" for the Team's events organiser Vinny Jones at Manchester's Cafe Istanbul on Bridge Street off Deansgate, Manchester. I am very excited about this and I hope that it will be start of lots of engagements with FC United.
My favourite thing about the team is that they place a huge emphasis on the community of football and all the people involved in it. Putting football first and corporate sponsorship second.
I wish them the best on their new build! May it all go smoothly!
