Registration open for NFABD Grassroots Football Festival 2017
Tuesday, May 16, 2017
THE National Football Association of Brunei Darussalam (NFABD) has opened registration for Sunday’s NFABD Grassroots Football Festival 2017 in Partnership with DST.
A one-day Under-12 annual event, NFABD alternates organising the NFABD Grassroots Football Festival in Brunei Muara and all four districts, and this year’s event will be held at the NFABD Artificial Turf field, NFABD House.
There is a limit of 300 entries for the event. Registration forms can be obtained at NFABD’s website (www.nfabd.org), on its facebook page (www.facebook.com/NFABDOFFICIAL/) or at NFABD House.
Completed entry forms must be submitted via e-mail or at NFABD House. Walk-in registration is also available and will be held from 7am to 7.30am at NFABD House on Sunday.
NFABD will distribute free jerseys sponsored by DST for the participants, and NFABD would also like to thank NBT Sdn Bhd and Superwater Marketing Sdn Bhd for their generous sponsorship of the event.
The event is being held in conjunction with the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Grassroots Football Day on May 15.
The NFABD Grassroots Football Festival is now in its fourth year and has grown from strength to strength since NFABD first organised it in 2014.
A total of 999 children took part in last year’s festival which was held in all four districts, and Brunei Darussalam - through NFABD - won the AFC President’s Recognition Award For Grassroots Football (Aspiring Category) for the second time running last year for its efforts in developing grassroots football in Brunei.
The AFC Grassroots Day participation has doubled since its inception in 2013, with a record-breaking 37 Member Associations participating last year.
Grassroots football forms the basis for success at all levels, and NFABD aims to enhance the football landscape to build a better and brighter future for tomorrow’s generation. As NFABD strives to strengthen the foundations for football to thrive, strong grassroots is a key success factor for the youth and adult levels to succeed.
