Taipei Youth Invitational Friendly Tournament on December 2nd. 2018
We started planning this tournament in mid-October with Michael at MFA. We both have a strong and committed U14 – U15 team, so we wanted to move them up from the 8v8 small pitch games to the full size pitch, playing 11v11 football.
Yesterday, December 2nd, with the support and participation of two great Taipei clubs, A.C. Academy and FCB, we had our first friendly tournament. The location and the atmosphere were perfect at the Bailing pitch.
MFA & SFI Collaboration
We would like to thank Michael and MFA for this successful collaboration. MFA & SFI will continue the joint effort to create more opportunities this season, for the U14 - U15 teams in Taipei to participate in this type of tournaments. We already have plans to organize similar tournaments in the spring.
We would like to congratulate all four teams for the great performances. All the teams worked hard and played very good football. I also want to thank the referees for their professionalism and dedication.
And, yes SFI won yesterday.
Michael from MFA wrote: “Congratulations to SFI for deservedly claiming the first trophy!”.
We, at SFI, are very impressed with our team’s performance. We worked hard over the last couple of years and now we can definitely see the results. We want to thank all the parents for supporting our team. Congratulations to all our players. You all did an excellent job yesterday.
This coming Sunday, December 9th. we booked 2 full size football pitches at Bailing Riverside Park.
We would like to organize an end of the year Saturday Football event there for all our members (if it’s not raining). All age groups are welcome. This will be an internal fun tournament, with only SFI players and parents attending. No winner or losers, we just want to celebrate the end of the first semester of the 2018 - 2019 season.
We have both pitches from 8:00 to 15:30 and we have one of the pitches even longer until 17:00. We will have a lot of space there; we can have several different matches in the same time.
We will create teams in all age groups and arrange some matches for fun. We can have other type of fun football challenges and maybe a group picture with everyone; depending on how many of you will be available that day.
Thus, we need to know how many of you can show up on Sunday and what time is best for you. We would like to ask you to click on the button under this text, which will take you to another page on this website. On this page you will find a form with check boxes. Please check the boxes and submit the form. This will let us know how many of you will be available to attend the event.
Please, submit your answer by tomorrow (Tuesday) night.
Thanks very much.
