Hamrun Spartans nursery to organise Christmas Football Festival

For the twelfth consecutive year, Hamrun Spartans FC Youth Nursery is once again organizing The Christmas Football Festival at the Victor Tedesco Stadium. This year’s Football Festival will be held on Tuesday 8th and on Saturday 12th December 2009, where 24 teams from three categories (2002, 2000, 1998) will be participating. 
This Football Festival is now considered as one of the most intensive, organized in Malta since 48 matches of non-stop football are played with duration of fifteen/twenty minutes each, during the two days. Around 300 boys and girls from 13 nurseries will participate in this event. 
The nurseries taking part in this year’s Football Festival are: Birkirkara, Lija/Iklin, Kirkop Utd, Melita, Naxxar L, Paola H., Pieta H, San Gwann, St.Patrick, Sliema W., Tarxien R, Valletta and Hamrun Spartans.
Due to the professional organization of the Festival and due to the fact that all matches are played on the synthetic pitch of the Victor Tedesco Stadium, its popularity now has established itself in the nurseries’ calendar of events. Proof of this is the fact that this year’s Festival was also fully registered within a couple of weeks from the opening of applications. 
Whist acknowledging the competitive spirit by which participants take part, we firmly believe that the scope of such a Football Festival remains first and foremost, that of delivering to the players a positive experience in an appropriate and conductive environment. In addition, we emphasise the fact that all matches are played in a RESPECTIVE and relaxed atmosphere, and that all players registered for the Festival, will all have their turn to play for their team. During this year’s 12th Edition the Organizing Committee will be using the slogan: “Let The Coaches Coach, Let The Children Play”.
Firetech Limited will be sponsoring the Christmas Football Festival for the sixth consecutive year. Established 15 years ago and forming part of a large group of companies, Firetech Limited specializes in fire, safety and security. The company operates from its premises at Mill Street Qormi and offers its services both locally and in Libya. The main reason why Firetech Limited sponsors this event year after year is that it recognizes the commitment and dedication of the organizers who run the nursery on a voluntary basis. 
The Hamrun Spartans FC Youth Nursery wish to publicly express their gratitude to Firetech Ltd. who has made it possible for these young players and their parents to enjoy this memorable day. The committee would also like to show their appreciation to the Hamrun Spartans Executive Committee, the Management of the Victor Tedesco Stadium, The Amateur, Youth & Grassroots Committee, and the entire applicant Nurseries.
