For the eighth consecutive year, Football United's annual Fair Play Festival provided opportunities for hundreds of youth to compete, meet new people and have fun. This year we joined forces with our friends from Creating Chances to deliver the biggest festival to date.
On Thursday 1 December, 270 children and youth descended upon Valentine Sports Park. Students from Miller Technology, Fairfield, Lurnea, Evans, Matraville Sports, Arthur Phillip, Liverpool Boys, Airds, Cambridge Park and Prairiewood High Schools joined volunteers to explore a range of team-building activities before they returned to their school colours to represent their schools.
In the Girls competition Cambridge Park overcame Fairfield in a tense final. A dominant Arthur Phillip HS took out the Junior Boys competition with a convincing victory over Liverpool Boys HS in the final. An all Miller Technology IEC final saw friends become adversaries, with one team outlasting the other 2-1.
