Chester FC Girls Football Festival

Chester FC is hosting a Girls’ Football Festival at the Lookers Vauxhall Stadium on Friday, May 5.
 
The free festival starts at 4pm and is open to girls aged 5-15 and will be packed with football and fun featuring 3v3 and 4v4 games, challenges including quick feet and rebounders and an exhibition match between Chester FC Women and Burscough Dynamo Ladies.
 
To add to the festival atmosphere, there will be a BBQ, ice cream, face painting, stalls, music and much more.
 
Grassroots clubs can register teams for the small-sided competitions and girls are also welcome to round up their friends to create their own teams or simply turn up and join in the fun.
 
Jim Green, chief executive of Chester FC Community Trust, said: “We’re really excited about the Chester FC Girls’ Football Festival and we hope it will be a fun, interactive experience both for girls new to the game and regular players.
 
“We’re inviting clubs from across the area to enter teams to play in small-sided games on the stadium pitch but girls don’t need to be attached to a club to take part; you can get together with friends from school to form your own team or register as an individual and join one of our Chester FC teams for the festival.
 
“The festival will offer girls the opportunity to play football in a relaxed and engaging environment and supports our commitment to developing the female game and the FA’s Gameplan for Growth.
 
“It promises to be a great evening concluding with Chester FC Women taking to pitch for a game to mark the end of another successful season for the team.”
