Two RIASA squads will travel to Derbyshire on Monday 17th May 2021 to compete against Buxton FC. This creates another fantastic opportunity for our student-athletes to experience a professional club set-up as we look to earn them more playing opportunities.
At RIASA we are always looking to create unique opportunities for our student-athletes and as part of our competitive games fixture, we will be travelling to Buxton to compete in two fixtures.
The Bucks who run a similar programme to RIASA, will be hosting the fixtures at their 5,000 capacity Tarmac Silverlands Stadium.
Opportunities like this create excitement and anticipation, ‘away days’ are also unique in themselves as student-athletes on the RIASA soccer programme get to experience first-hand the traveling, the new surroundings, different playing styles and the stadium itself.
Buxton FC will be a competitive test for both RIASA squads. Both fixtures will be recorded and available to watch at a later date on RIASA YouTube.
