Street Soccer chooses Edinburgh for first community store

Street Soccer, the youth charity supported by Sir Alex Ferguson, has launched its first ‘community store’ at Ocean Terminal shopping centre in Edinburgh’s Leith.

The 1,750 square foot space on the first floor of the centre will be used for a combination of retail sales and meeting and chill out places for the young people the charity supports.

Founded in 2009, Street Soccer is a social enterprise which uses football inspired training and development to empower young people to make positive changes in their lives. 

Ocean Terminal is already home to a number of outlets with a social purpose, including The Leith Collective, Projek42, the Wee Museum of Memory and House of Jack.

Michelle Macleod, Ocean Terminal’s centre manager, said: “The nature of the retail industry has been evolving and changing for some time and we have always felt it important to respond to the significant regeneration happening within our local community. The Dugout is an example of how retail space can be used effectively to create something different and exciting for local people and we are delighted to welcome Street Soccer to Ocean Terminal.”
