Football Champs kick off

The fourteen teams competing in today’s National Youth Football Championship are looking towards their games against each other. A win from the first games will be an advantage to progress through to the semi finals.
Teams in Pool A have been scheduled to be played on Field 1 with Aitutaki taking on Mangaia in the Under 16 Girls division followed by the Under 15 Boys division where Aitutaki challenge Mangaia. The last match of Pool A in the Under 15 Boys division will see Takitumu battle with Mauke.
On Field 2, teams in Pool B will see the Atiu side take on Mitiaro in the Under 16 Girls division followed by the Under 15 Boys division where Atiu fight it out with Mitiaro with the last match between Vaka rivals Te Au O Tonga and Puaikura.
Players and officials are all geared up and ready to display their talents while the CIFA technical department will identify players for the Under 17 Women and Men’s squad.
Players that are outstanding in this championship will see them further themselves in football when selected to attend our youth training camps.
