Business leaders take part in Dragon Park kick about with Wales football legends

Business leaders from across Wales came together to combine business and football and raise funds for charity at the inaugural CEO Kickabout at Newport’s Dragon Park.

Members of south Wales businesses were among those invited for a day of football, tactical insight and networking sessions, featuring Wales football legend Ian Rush and Welsh national team manager Chris Coleman.

Coleman shared his managerial philosophy and his hopes and expectations ahead of Euro 2016 with the group in an hour-long talk. This was followed by an eleven aside match at the national coaching centre at Dragon Park.

Neil Ward, CEO of the FAW Trust said: “It’s been a huge success and a great opportunity to get leaders in business together away from the office. It’s also been a great opportunity for people to see the great facilities here at Dragon Park and just enjoy the day.”
