Now in its second year the Tesco Bank Junior Players community sports programme sees tens of thousands of primary school pupils from across the North East of England take part in basketball and football sessions led by our Eagles Community Foundation coaches along with Sunderland AFC’s Foundation of Light and the Newcastle United Foundation.

The three club’s Community Foundations, in partnership with Tesco Bank and Tesco Underwriting, have combined to develop a sports that will give young people in the region the opportunity to not only take part in physical activity, but to receive expert tuition from highly qualified coaches.

This flagship programme was first time the three Foundations have collaborated on such a project and in the first year saw over 18,500 primary school pupils from across the region get fit and active.
