REGISTRATION FOR FIFA GIRLS FOOTBALL FESTIVAL OPENS
SINGAPORE, 13 SEPTEMBER 2017: The Football Association of Singapore today announced that the FIFA Girls Festival will be returning for the fourth year running. The festival will take place on 9 November 2017 at Serangoon Stadium from 8.00am-5.00pm.
The increasingly popular all-girls event concludes the mini-festivals and weekly football sessions that have been held throughout the year at Coral Primary, Bowen Secondary and Queensway Secondary Schools. Last year’s festival was attended by over 400 girls, almost double the number from 2015.
The festival will feature three categories for the girls to pit their skills against each other – 5-a-side events for the Under-8s and Under-10s, as well as 8-a-side events for the Under-12s.
Ms Julie Teo, General Manager of Grassroots and Women‚Äôs Football, said: “The increasing number of participants at our annual FIFA Girls Festival is heartening and we are looking forward to welcoming even more girls and their families this year. We encourage all girls to join us on 9 November for a day of football and fun, and find out for themselves what draws so many to the beautiful game.”
Interested participants may register their teams by writing in to [email protected] by 2 October 2017. There is no fee for participation.
