Ward-Prowse’s connection with the city started at an early age when he joined the club’s Academy, giving him the platform to reach his potential in becoming Southampton’s captain and representing England.

Claire Whitaker OBE, Southampton 2025 UK City of Culture Bid Director said “With a record number of cities in the running, all eyes are currently on what makes Southampton unique – and it is our focus on ensuring that the city’s children and young people have the skills and opportunities to thrive which we believe will help us win.

“Not only are we delighted to announce James as an ambassador for our bid to become UK City of Culture 2025, we are also thrilled that he is a great role model for the children and young people of Southampton who are not only shaping our bid, but also the future of our wonderful city.
