Football fever is gripping the nation this summer and the Sports Direct.com FAI Summer Soccer Schools are back!
Republic of Ireland manager Martin O’Neill was on hand at Aviva Stadium today to launch the 2016 Sports Direct.com FAI Summer Soccer Schools programme. Both O’Neill and Roy Keane were huge supporters of the programme last year and hope to be involved again this year.
The Sports Direct.com FAI Summer Soccer Schools programme is the FAI’s largest grassroots programme and one of the most important as it encourages children’s involvement in sport, in a fun and friendly environment. Now in its 20th year, the summer camps enjoyed record participation numbers last year with over 26,500 children from all around the country taking part.
