'Alfred Borg & Mario Borg Life Celebration' Football Festival

Birkirkara FC Youth Nursery has the pleasure to announce that it will be hosting a football festival at the Infetti Training Grounds. This festival will span over a weekend, the dates being Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th of March. It will commemorate and honour the life and work of legendary football administrator Mr. Alfred Borg and football coach Mr. Mario Borg, under whom our Nursery excelled.

This festival, played entirely on a 5-a-side basis, will be open for four different age groups. On the first day, the Under 6 (born on or after 1st January 2006) and the Under 9 (born on or after 1st January 2003) categories will be playing in parallel between 9.30am and 1.00pm. Each game is 25 minutes long and all the teams will play each other once using a Round-Robin system. The second day will see the Under 7 (born on or after 1st January 2005) and Under 8 (born on or after 1st January 2004) categories in action, with the time and the system of play remaining unchanged from day one. Each participating player will automatically enter a raffle where merchandise items will be at stake. A commemorative photograph will be presented to each team, while medical assistance will be available throughout the festival.
Nurseries may express their interest in participating in any of the categories by sending an email on info@birkirkaranursery.com, or by contacting any of the committee members. A maximum of 6 teams, including the hosts, will be taking part in each age group. The number of players that can be registered for each team is unlimited. Applications will be accepted on a first come first serve policy. Birkirkara FC Youth Nursery is sure that this will be a celebration where children would have fun in a healthy football environment.
