On Sunday, students and staff from Fulham Cross, Fulham College and our Enterprise Studio went to Wembley Stadium to watch an NFL match.
A record-breaking 85,870 fans turned up to watch the Philadelphia Eagles play the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The atmosphere in the stadium was magnificent and it was a great experience for all our staff and students, especially as for some this was their first experience of an NFL game.
Every Wednesday, students from Fulham Cross, Fulham College and the Enterprise Studio play Jag Tag – a game created by the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Jag Tag is a simplified tag version of American Football and taught by professionals from the Jacksonville Jaguars – it encourages players to work tactically and as a team.
Tickets to the NFL game were awarded to students who have shown dedication to Jag Tag by attending and getting involved in all the sessions.
The students were extremely well behaved and fully immersed themselves into the NFL culture and game! To top it all off, graduates from our Enterprise Studio Tasnim and Eryk, received a congratulatory applause from all the spectators for winning the Jaguars UK and LGTVestra US Gridiron Grant earlier this year. The award means that neither of them have to pay for their university fees for the next three years!
Although we were disappointed to see the Jaguars lose the match we still had a thrilling day out.
Don’t forget, Jag Tag is on every Wednesday 3-5pm at Fulham College Boys’ School Astro turf.
