Almost 40 clubs will be visited throughout the Royal County to see the crucial work that is being done at grassroots level in the county.

This year's Festival of Football will be led by FAI President Donal Conway, Republic of Ireland managers and head coaches and former Republic of Ireland internationals and current Ireland WNT players.

This is the first year the Festival of Football has been in Meath, following previous visits to Kerry, Mayo, Monaghan, Wexford, Clare, Donegal, Wicklow, Westmeath, Sligo/Leitrim, Tipperary, Kilkenny and Cork.

The Festival of Football concludes on Friday, July 26th with the annual FAI Delegates Dinner, on the eve of the AGM. The FAI Club of the Year will be announced on the night, with six clubs shortlisted for the prestigious award. 

The winners of the FAI Communications Awards will also be announced on the night, alongside grassroots members being awarded with the John Sherlock Services to Football Awards.

Sunday's club visits begin in the Navan area with eight grassroots venues to be visited, ahead of visits around the remainder of the country next week.
