Meadow View Park is the home of Thame United Football Club and Thame Boys, Youth & Girls FC. It was built in 2010 at a cost of £3.5m on a 22 acre site. Today the clubs have some 530 active players and over 1000 members.
In 2005, Thame United went into administration and lost its ground at Windmill Road in Thame and the junior teams played at various recreational grounds. In 2007 discussions between all interested parties began to explore how the vast army of volunteers and members could create a single facility in the town. With the help of Sports Solution GB, the “dream” slowly began to move tantalisingly close to reality..
In this session Anna Kocerhan of Sport Solutions and Peter Fleming of Thame Football Partnership will take you through the journey from dream to reality of bringing football home to Thame at Meadow View Park. Some 4 years on they will also share the challenges faced in making the fantastic facility a commercial and football success.
Anna Kocerhan is a respected specialist in developing sustainable strategies for local sports clubs.
Peter Fleming joined the Partnership in 2006 in the role of Independent Director to provide a commercial input.
