The Premier League encourages children to disown their Chelsea and Manchester City supporting friends
This week the Premier League announced its plan to help kids reduce plastics. Partnering with Sky, the organizations plan to educate children about the benefits of plastic reduction. With 15,000 English and Welsh primary schools at its reach through the Premier League Primary Stars programme, the goal will be to encourage British youth to live more sustainable lifestyles.
Tottenham stars Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen took on Mauricio Pochettino and Jesus Perez in a plastic bottle shout-out during training to raise awareness on the issue. Each contestant had five shots from the penalty spot to knock over plastic water bottles and earn points. Pochettino won his team the game knocking by over two water bottles, however, we hear Harry Kane as put in an appeal and claims it was actually him who got the last touch.
An in-class session earlier in the week saw Isaac Nartey from Sky’s Ocean Rescue team, Premier League Primary Stars coach Jake Norman and Tottenham Hotspur club ambassador Gary Mabbutt visit Weston Park Primary School. While the exact content of the session is not yet available, a member of our team managed to find a leaked list of teaching points provided to Isaac, Jake and Gary.
We’d like to think this initiative will provide Britain’s future with the inspiration to go out and make the world a better place, but we fear the worst.
