Annual Football Tournament Scores Big

Archived: Posted September 9, 2014

Annual FCA Football tournamentOur Football Tournament celebrated its 11th anniversary this summer and we’re pleased to announce it was our most successful event ever!

Over 1200 foster carers, staff and children travelled from across the UK, Ireland and Finland for the competition, which took place in Nottingham from 25th-27th July.

But football wasn’t the only attraction. Visitors also enjoyed a bouncy castle, climbing wall, go karts and even a mini football tournament for the Under 9s.

The event, which recognises the talents of children from all backgrounds and abilities, is well-loved for its inclusive atmosphere, team spirit and opportunities for children and young people to participate in competitive sports.

“It encourages children to develop social, communication and team working skills, as well as encouraging them to be more active and interact with different peer groups,” says Hefin Daniels, who has coordinated the event for the past eight years.

“This year was a wonderful experience for everyone involved. The sheer number of teams, combined with perfect weather, made it a tournament to remember. Seeing the passion and joy on everyone’s faces made it a pleasure to be a part of – I’m extremely proud to have played my part.”
