10th Fingal Festival of Football â€“ Girls Football Festival
The Fingal Festival of Football, now in its 10th year will take place in Sportslink, Santry, on August 18th. The competition was initially developed as a cross border football tournament for boys. It now caters for 32 teams across five sections: boys, girls, Special Olympics, Powerchair and Irish Street Leagues with teams coming from communities in Ireland & Northern Ireland.
This year's event will see the 2nd running of the U10 and U12 girls Soccer Festival being held on the day to promote the underage girl's game. This event will consist of a 5 a side blitz and other fun events with the major emphasis being on the girls enjoying themselves.
Commenting on the Girls soccer festival, Paul Keogh FAI/Fingal County Council Development officer added "we hope for a great turnout of girls for what is sure to be a great day out. Girls can enter by forming teams, entering club teams or by individual registration. With the success of the Metropolitan girl's league under the auspice of the NDSL it is an exciting time for girl's football. This year sees support from FIFA with their Live Your Goals programme which will only enhance the event with current Ireland female internationals expected to attend"
