Local schools go head to head in PL Enterprise Challenge
This season’s Premier League Enterprise Challenge kicks off at the Liberty Stadium tonight with two local schools going head to head in the local heat.
Pitching to a panel of judges, the teams will present their business ideas that aim to fulfil the brief set to schools across the UK by the Premier League’s Executive Chairman, Richard Scudamore.
This season’s challenge sees schools look to create a strategy to increase their respective Club’s international fan base in the USA and all the teams are relishing the opportunity of representing the Swans in the next round.
“We are excited but nervous. We’re looking forward to pitching our ideas,” said Pentrehafod’s team who have been meeting weekly to develop their business plan, as well as conducting market research at Swansea University.
“We’re feeling a mixture of emotions,” added the team from LLangatwg Community School. “We’re proud, excited and nervous all at the same time.
“We’ve been preparing by writing scripts, growing our confidence through continuous practice, as well as practicing our smiling!”
The two teams will battle it out tonight for a chance to compete in the regional heats where the winning team will then pitch their plans to a panel of prestigious judges against other teams from across the Premier and Football Leagues.
