FIFA ‚ÄúLIVE YOUR GOALS‚Äù SINGAPORE FESTIVALS
SINGAPORE, 29 AUGUST 2016: The Football Association of Singapore is pleased to announce that two FIFA ‚ÄúLive Your Goals‚Äù (LYG) festivals will be held at Queensway Secondary School and Bowen Secondary School, on 10 and 11 September 2016 respectively. The festivals ‚Äì which will be free and open to the public ‚Äì will feature a football clinic, small-sided games and opportunities to meet members of the Singapore Women‚Äôs National Team.
‚ÄúThe launch of the FIFA LYG campaign in May opened a further avenue for more girls to play football in Singapore. The upcoming festivals aim to build on the success of the LYG campaign so far, and will offer a host of exciting activities to the public. We hope to see more girls and women at our weekly sessions and at the festivals on 10 and 11 September, coming with their families and friends. It is our goal to have more girls and women play football regularly, and raise the profile of women‚Äôs football in Singapore,‚Äù said Ms Julie Teo, General Manager, Grassroots, Women‚Äôs Football and Volunteer Management.
The FIFA ‚ÄúLive Your Goals‚Äù (LYG) campaign was launched in Singapore in May 2016. The international campaign by FIFA has its origins in the FIFA Women‚Äôs World Cup Germany 2011 where it was first introduced. The global aim of the campaign is to target and inspire girls and women to play football and stay in the game.
Both the Queensway and Bowen LYG centres will continue to offer free weekly LYG sessions, along with the third LYG centre at Coral Primary School which was launched on 8 July. The Coral Primary LYG centre is only open to students of the school, while the other two are open to all girls aged 6-15. Participants should come down in sports attire and football boots or running/turf shoes. On-site registration is available, but interested parties are encouraged to register earlier by writing in to [email protected] to secure available slots.
