FIFTY Primary Schools teams comprising boys and girls between the ages nine to 13 participated on the second day of the Scotiabank CONCACAF NextPlay Cup at the TTFA Home of Football training fields on Saturday morning.
One of the new Home of Football training pitches was put to use for the first time in a competitive environment as eight small-sided fields were set-up for matches to run simultaneously over four hours of play on each day.
“At Scotiabank, we share the passion for football with our employees, customers, and the communities we serve, so we are happy to be providing opportunities for children to play football,” said David Noel, SVP & Head of the Caribbean North and Central, and President of Scotiabank Jamaica.
“We are confident that this will be an experience that will allow participating schools and students to develop their football skills while encouraging teamwork, leadership, and healthy competition,” Noel further said.
