Football’s inter academy second stage concludes

The second stage of the Inter-Academy Football Carnival concluded last weekend at City Football Complex organized by the Technical Department of Football Federation of Sri Lanka.

A total of 19 football academies from Jaffna, Badulla, Ampara, Batticaloa and Kandy participated in the second phase after its first phase was held at the same venue with the participation of 24 Academies last month.

“We successfully concluded both stages of the Inaugural Academy Football Carnival. I think this is a great investment to the future of Sri Lanka football.

Coaches can identify talented and skillful young kids through this type of event and develop their skills to higher levels.

“Also this is a great opportunity to attract young kids to play football and make football popular among the children,” said Dudley Steinwall the manager of Football Academies of the FFSL.

The program was conducted for the Under 12 age category and 19 football academies divided into five groups.
