Creating Chances with the Premier League
The Premier League's Creating Chances project
The project is open for entries until Friday 29 June 2007
The Premier League has launched a new initiative to bring the country's top football clubs closer to their local communities.

Creating Chances will see players and managers taking part in community and charitable projects and create fundraising opportunities.

The Premier League has joined up with BBC Sport to give fans the chance to "win" a Premiership footballer for a day.

You can now sign up for a chance to take part in the 'Places for Players' schemes which will see 60 Premier League stars make personal appearances.

The events will take place during September this year.

Richard Scudamore, chief executive of the Premier League, said: "Creating Chances highlights the Premier League and our clubs' continued and increasing commitment to local communities.

"The 'Places for Players' initiative is an excellent and visible way to give hundreds of charitable organisations the opportunity to highlight their fantastic work.

"This initiative is just one of many ways all our clubs and their players support a broad range of community projects, and a fitting way to launch Creating Chances."

  • Any charity or community programme based in the UK can apply for a Premier League player. Successful applicants will receive access to a Premier League player for up to four hours between Saturday 15 September and Saturday 6 October 2007.

    Full terms and conditions are on the Premier League website. The BBC is not responsible for the content of external internet sites.
