On the 9th September EFS Europe were invited to lay 450sqm of their Temp-A-Path temporary flooring at the Leicester New Parks Community Centre for the unveiling of the brand-new mini football pitch - New Parks Cruyff Court.

A series of current and former Leicester City stars opened Cruyff Court including footballing legends Steve Walsh, Emile Heskey, Matt Elliott and Gary Lineker to unveil the new pitch.

EFS Europe's Temp-A-Path was installed around the football pitch to create pedestrian walkways for the event. The temporary flooring was installed over topsoil to allow visitors easy and safe access in time for the launch of the new pitch.

Incredibly, the pitch is made in part using empty and recycled crisp packets!

Attending her first community appearance, LCFC Women defender McManus praised the inclusivity of the sessions that will take place at the Cruyff Court.

"The event has been great," the 28-year-old said. "It is amazing to think the artificial grass has got recycled Walkers crisp packets underneath, it is amazing for the planet as well as the community of Leicester."

The court, funded by Walkers Crisps and The Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Foundation, partners the UEFA Foundation for children and streetfootballworld, and locally with the Cruyff Foundation, Leicester City in the Community, Leicester City Council and Team Hub CIC.

EFS Europe's Managing Director, Jeremy Simpson said: 'We were delighted to be invited to supply our flooring for this event. I've said many times before that despite working across the UK, supplying events in our home city is always special and being involved in this important community project made it extra special – meeting football heroes was the icing on the cake!"
