Developed jointly by the Football Association of Wales (FAW) Trust and Acorn’s Executive Search Division, the event brings business people from across Wales together for a day of football, tactical insight and networking at the FAW’s National Football Development Centre at Dragon Park, Newport.
The CEO Kickabout is back, but this year we are opening up the event to all levels to celebrate the World Cup.
The event will once again be a 6-a-side competition format, with tactical talks, networking and a BBQ, however this time we are raising money for Mind as part of Acorn’s 30th year celebrations. We’re delighted to be supporting such a fantastic organisation who continue the fight for mental health.
Following the success of our CEO Kickabout events in previous years, we’re really excited about the next event in September.
The FAW Trust aims to encourage more people, male and female, of all ages to play football, to ensure the future success of Wales’ national teams, and events like this make a huge contribution to achieving our goals.FAW Trust, Neil Ward CEO.
It’s truly an unforgettable day, but don’t take our word for it, see what everyone else has to say!
All proceeds made from the CEO Kickabout will be donated to the FAW Trust, which aims to:
- Encourage more people - male and female - of all ages to play football
- Identify and develop talented young players to support the future success of Wales' national teams in all age groups
- Develop more and better qualified coaches
The Executive Search Division of leading multi-specialist recruiter, Acorn, is delighted to join forces with the FAW Trust to host the CEO Kickabout events.
It's a great privilege to work with the FAW on such innovative events. Our first CEO Kickabouts have been a brilliant success, and the commitment and support from Chris Coleman’s team including Osian, Carl and Ian is simply outstanding. I’m really looking forward to the next event, as I have no doubt business leaders all over the country will take great insight away from such an inspiring event.
