AFC sets 15th May as the “AFC Grassroots Football Day” since 2013 and this year marks the 6th year continuously FFAV support this meaningful campaign.
To celebrate AFC’s Grassroots Football Day, FFAV’s clubs have been organizing a series of events such as Children Grassroots Football School, Fun Football Festival, Football Tournament, Goal event with the participation of more than 1.600 students from 10th to 19th of May. The participating clubs include An Bang-Vinh An Secondary School, Vinh Thanh Secondary School, Dien Loc Primary School, Phuong Duc Primary School, Thuy Phu Secondary School, Phu Mau Secondary School, Trung Chanh Primary School and Dai Thanh Primary School.
With the diversified of activities, these playgrounds bring good entertainment opportunities for children right in the beginning of the summer. In line with FFAV’s handover strategy, many clubs have received active participation and support from the parents from the preparation to the organization of the event. For example, in Trung Chanh Primary School, Phu Loc, although the school has only 207 students, this event received the support of 15-20 parent volunteers. Parents are coaches, referees, life-skills facilitators, fundraisers and supporters. The children have a great more fun day having their parents accompanying them in the event.
In football, grassroots football is the good foundation, if it develops well, there will be platform for talent development, “investment in grassroots football is the investment for the future””. We feel very happy and proud to contribute to the development of football movement and we will continue to celebrate AFC’s Grassroots Football Day in the coming years.
