Dorset FA are excited to invite your team to our EURO 2024 celebration festivals on Saturday 8th June 2024, hosted at the County Ground, Hamworthy, BH15 4BF.
The festivals are open to County FA affiliated teams using the age groups from the 2023/24 season and players must have been registered with the club they have been entered with for the 2023/24 season.
The festivals offer Under 9 Girls, Under 11 Girls, Under 13 Girls & Under 15 Girls age groups. All age groups will play 6 v 6 non-competitive football with each team allocated a EURO 2024 country to represent at the event. RESPECT winners will be awarded throughout the day for the teams demonstrating RESPECT across players, coaches and spectators in addition to each player receiving a participation medal. There will also be prizes for teams celebrating their allocated country, for example flags, banners, chants etc.
Our Dorset ETC Coaches will be in attendance to get a pre-trial look at players in our grassroots football, as an opportunity to see players in their club environment before our summer trials open in July. We ask where possible, for teams to wear numbered shirts.
Places are allocated on a first come, first served basis so please apply early. Initially you'll be able to enter 1 team per club, per age group.
