Women’s football is about to score big.
The Win in CONCACAF with CONCACAF Girls’ Football Festival will culminate on Saturday with a competition, following six weeks of training sessions, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Set for the Wildey Astroturf, the festival will be played as seven-a-side ten-minute games and is open to all females playing football.
Organizers do not view it as “a competition but rather fun family football day”.  
“The festival will offer something for everyone and is inclusive to all levels of ability from youngsters enjoying their first involvement with football to regular players,” they said.
“The day will see an informal lively festival-style football event which will combine football lifestyle and music to encourage girls to get involved in playing.”
The main aim of the football festival is to provide as many girls as possible with a fun experience and also ignite an interest in the game so that they will carry this passion through to their schools, clubs and, by extension, the national programme.
Those attending will also get the chance to meet and play with the female national team training squad who are currently in preparation for the Women’s World Cup 2014 in Canada. (HG/PR)
