From their work in schools to holiday camps and other activities, and the Player Development Centre which are a huge part too, they do excellent work and I am very happy to be supporting them.”
Sport and PDC Ambassador, Jodi Jones said: “I am really pleased to be chosen as an ambassador for Sport and the Player Development Centres. The team at Sky Blues in the Community do a fantastic job in schools and with Football Holiday Camps, engaging with youngsters and making sure they enjoy sport, keep active, make new friends and develop new skills.

Inclusion Ambassador, Kyle McFadzean said: “I am very pleased to be the Ambassador for the Sky Blues in the Community Inclusion programme this year.
