Welcome to The Ultimate Away Day, a campaign by the County FA and THINK! that’s all about getting footballers and their mates safely to those important away days.
Away days are a big part of a football team’s season and often involve groups of players travelling together by car to the game. With high energy levels and groups of players in cars together, there is the potential for reckless driving and distractions.
Young male drivers aged 17-24 are four times more likely to be killed or seriously injured than drivers aged 25 and over, and are more likely to crash with male passengers of a similar age in the car.
That’s why the County FA are partnering with THINK!
We will be teaming up with groups of young players and following them on their journey to an away game, and it also provides the opportunity to educate players about safe-driving in a relevant, fun and engaging way.
This is a chance for your club to get involved in a national campaign and meet some very special guests along the way!
