Day 1 & 2 Round-Up: Somaiya Football Championship

Somaiya Football Championship

Somaiya Sports Academy’s ‘Somaiya Football Championship’ kicked-off on 4 December 2016. The sub-junior and youth-level tournament comprises of under-8, under-10, under-12, under -15 and under-18 age groups. The five age groups are independent groups, comprising of the participating teams. On matchday 1 and 2 of the tournament, several games came close to a nail-biting ending, whereas others concluded with one side dominating the proceedings. Here is a complete group viz. summary from the two days of Somaiya Football Championship:

The U8 category is played in a festival format, where there are modified rules. There is no competition and all the players are welcomed every week to engage in fun activities apart from Football.

First Sunday the kids were getting their arms and cheeks painted with tattoos and the next Sunday was an ice cream treat for all to beat the heat.

This is by far the most exciting Under-8 festival in the city this season.
