Enterprise challenge at the AMEX Community Stadium
The students (Yumna, Jamal, Lenny, Ella, Otis, Freya, Bridey) took part in a Premier League Enterprise challenge at the AMEX Community Stadium. They formed two teams, and were asked to create and develop an idea on increasing diversity in attendance at Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club. The two teams worked independently on two different ideas, and presented them to a panel of judges in front of students from 6 other Brighton schools at the AMEX.
Both teams presented fantastically well, and the judges were very impressed. They year 8 team placed third, and the year 9 team came first! Their idea was based around a community day to welcome a greater number of younger and older citizens to the AMEX. As a result of this success, the Year 9 team (Team Swim on the Left) will go on to represent Brighton and Hove Albion in the regional final of the Premier League Enterprise Challenge at Southampton FC in January! We wish them lots of luck in the next round!
