Duty Manager - Sheffield, South Yorkshire 

Yard Ball Sheffield is seeking a talented and passionate Assistant Manager to help build and lead our team. Spread across over 30,000 sq, ft, Yard Ball Sheffield is a nostalgic football & social experience due to open in Summer 2024.

Our unique concept will transport visitors back to a time when football was fun and Social Clubs were a staple along side a chippy tea on a Friday. Fusing Social Club aesthetics, great food, 90’s culture and street football classics like Kerby and one-man Wembley, all while reminiscing about baggy kits, teletext scores, bad haircuts (usually by your mum), games on the garages or under the pub car park lights when it gets dark.

Pure nostalgia. Zero VAR.
