New date for Forest Pitch project
 Women's Football News 28 Jul 2012
 
Football, art, the environment and social change will all come into focus when four highly unusual amateur teams play two matches on a specially-created pitch in the heart of a Borders forest near Selkirk. 
 
Edinburgh-based Craig Coulthard's Forest Pitch art experience is one of Scotland's most dramatic and delightful contributions to the Cultural Olympiad and London 2012 Festival, which run in tandem with the 2012 Olympic Games.
 
Match day will be on Saturday, 25 August when some 60 players, mostly new Scots who have come to Scotland from all round the world for safety, love, work or study will take part in this special tournament.
 
The men's and women's teams will be cheered on by up to 1,000 spectators - each fan making their own contribution to this imaginative celebration of the true Olympic spirit and exploration of 21st Century Scottish culture and identity. All will be invited to sign their names on commemorative posters and a few will have the chance to help with filming for the movie which is being made about the project.
 
The games take place in a magnificent natural arena, cut from a commercial spruce forest on the Buccleuch Estate, with live music and international food all adding to the match day excitement. Later in the year the white lines of the pitch will be replanted with a mixture of native tree varieties. This will evolve into a natural sculpture - a ghost pitch - which the public can enjoy for up to 60 years into the future.
 
Match tickets need to be booked in advance from www.forestpitch.org or by calling (01665) 833751. Prices are £5 for adults, £3.50 for concessions and under-5s are free. Family tickets are £15. There is a booking fee of 50p per ticket.
 
The matches take place at the pitch near Selkirk, in the Scottish Borders. Tickets include park and ride. Ticketing enquiries should be made to tickets@forestpitch.org. For full details about Forest Pitch see www.forestpitch.org/.
