Time Running Out To Apply For Junior Takeover

Time is running out for junior members to apply for some key match day roles in our Junior Takeover later this month!

Time is running out for junior members to apply for some key match day roles at the KCOM Stadium as our annual Junior Takeover takes place at the final home game of the season against Catalans Dragons on Saturday 22nd September (5.00pm kick-off).

Hull FC’s junior members can follow in the footsteps of our members of staff in some key match day roles, such as Chairman, Head Coach, Media Manager and Pitch Announcer to name a few.

But there’s now just less than a week for junior members to apply for the roles, with the deadline of 5.00pm on Monday 17th September fast approaching!

To apply for one of the roles in our Junior Takeover, please email membership@hullfc.com with the child’s name, H number on the back of their membership card, age, the top three jobs they wish to undertake and why they’d fit the bill!

A handful of lucky junior members will be selected to take up some of the key match day roles for the Catalans home clash, offering a once in a lifetime, behind the scenes experience with the Black & Whites.

Check out a full list of roles waiting to be vacated below:

Pitch Announcer

Make yourself heard at our final home game of 2018 and work alongside our pitch announcer Mark Ash, with the successful applicant taking centre stage on the microphone, reading the team news and enjoying an unforgettable pitch side experience.

Media Manager

If you fancy yourself as a social media guru, this is definitely the role for you. Taking over our social media channels, you’ll be able to interact with thousands of Hull FC supporters! Fans will be able to read your match report, which is published on our official website and social media channels! Plus, join the Hull FC Live team in the post-match press conference, as well as the chance to speak to Lee Radford one-on-one and ask some of the questions that you want answered by the head coach.

Chief Executive/Chairman

Get an exclusive tour of the KCOM Stadium before sitting down with Executive Director James Clark to discuss their thoughts on the club and propose changes they’d like to see at the Black & Whites! Before the match, the lucky applicant will lead a board meeting with all Junior Takeover participants, as well as taking to the stage for an interview and meeting the Black & Whites’ main sponsors. Enjoy the game from the front row of the Director’s Box, the best seats in the house.


For those who have a passion for photography, this is the role for you! Capture the moment as the match day experience passes you by, with the successful applicant given their own personal camera for the game.

Kit Man

Hanging up the kit isn’t the only task in this role! There’s plenty of responsibilities for this role, with one lucky applicant getting an exclusive experience inside the KCOM Stadium, able to look after all of the team’s equipment, including balls and water, and print some of the playing jerseys. The kit man will also run the kicking tee onto the pitch! As a souvenir for their role, the kit man will be able to keep a match worn shirt from the player of their choice!


Take in the behind-the-scenes experience at the KCOM Stadium from a different perspective and join the referees for the coin toss, team sheet handover and walk on the match ball as the teams make their way onto the pitch.
