The Show will be the prelude to a busy summer of football in 2012 with the European Championships due to kick off in June.

Joanna Burns, Director of The brmb Grass Roots Football Show said; “Our ability to confirm the dates of next year’s event so quickly reflects the positive feedback we have enjoyed from exhibitors, customers and the general football family.

“The Grass Roots Football Show has established itself as the undisputed number one football show in the UK.

“The NEC is a great venue for us and we are already working on additional expansion for the 2012 event.

“Exhibitor feedback was extremely positive and over the coming weeks and months we will be outlining our thoughts and plans for next year’s event to them.

“The passion and appetite for this event is plain to see with around 11,000 people attending over the three days of the show in 2011 and we are working hard to keep moving grass roots football forward.”

Chris Hartley, Business Development Director for the NEC, said; “We are delighted to have confirmed dates for next year’s brmb Grass Roots Football Show at the NEC.

“The vision of the Grass Roots Football Show team is obviously something that the public have bought into and we look forward to 2012 with great anticipation.”

Show ambassadors including Graham Taylor, Chris Hughton, Iain Dowie, Robbie Savage and Dion Dublin all attracted sell-out coaching clinics and seminars at the event.

Show ambassador Robbie Savage said; “I thoroughly enjoyed my debut at The brmb Grass Roots Football Show this year.

“It is a fantastic platform to discuss some of the key issues that affect the game at all levels and just shows there is a massive appetite for the game in the UK.

“For professionals to be able to mix with coaches, players, officials and everybody involved in grass roots football for three days at the NEC was an unbelievable experience and I can’t wait to return next year.”

A range of leading brands and exhibitors have already signed up and confirmed their support for the 2012 event.
