Girls have a ball at FIFA roadshows

More than 400 girls attended the first two events in this year’s FIFA Live Your Goals roadshow programme organised in Northern Ireland by the Irish FA.

Omagh Leisure Centre and Cliftonville FC’s Solitude ground have already hosted roadshows this week and festival days are also being staged at Cheney Park in Banbridge (today, 14th April) and the Joe McAree Stadium in Dungannon tomorrow.

More than 2000 girls have registered to take part in Live Your Goals events at 16 venues across the country during April and May.

The roadshows are free of charge and were open to P6 and P7 girls from all primary schools in Northern Ireland.

Part of the FIFA Women’s Football Development Programme, they are aimed at increasing the number of girls that play football in Northern Ireland and helping to raise the profile of the sport.

Each roadshow involves skills drills, small-sided games, inflatables, competitions and music.
