The Easter and Summer school holidays will see fewer youngsters complaining of boredom thanks to sponsorship of ex-footballer David Platt’s Football Matters academies by Chevrolet.
Academy managers will be able to travel to the venues, carrying all of their kit, in Chevrolet Captiva SUVs.
David Platt commented: "I am very excited to be teaming up with Football Matters and Chevrolet to launch this new and exciting initiative."
Rory Harvey, managing director of Chevrolet UK, said: "The association with football academies is a great fit for Chevrolet and we’re very proud to be involved."
The footballing academies will be open to youngsters from age four to age 14 and will include sessions on sports journalism, physiotherapy, nutrition and leadership skills as well as football coaching.
