This new league will bring together the Police, Fire, the NHS and the prison service in a UK-wide football league. This is the only league of its kind!!
All of these emergency services are renowned for having highly competitive teams and this exciting new competition will create regular, flexible fixtures for emergency personnel – who are often unable to commit to regular leagues due to unsociable working patterns.
The leagues main aim is to increase the wellbeing amongst the hard working emergency shrive workers in the UK. There is a clear correlation between high levels of physical activity and positive emotional wellbeing. Employees that have higher levels of emotional wellbeing are more likely to stay in work, are more productive, more energised and confident, and may potential inspire others, subsequently increasing workplace morale. Participation in competitive sport increases both organisational and social cohesion and promotes a team-building ethic that is paramount across the roles of emergency service workers.
