The Football Association of Ireland and Salthill Devon will host a Family FUN football event in Salthill Park to coincide with the National five-a-side competition on May 30 and 31. There will be activities for all ages to take part during the event (from 12pm to 5pm) each day.
We will have FAI mini pitch, speed radar, street striker, inflatable targets and FIFA live your goals. Also at the event we will have a walking football area which is supported by Croi.
Walking football is a new adaptation of the game of football that has all the fun and challenge of the game, without the sliding tackles and bruised shins. So, if you used to play football but now find the pace a bit too much or if you’ve never had the chance to be involved before, walking football is the perfect introduction to playing football.
It is free for everyone to take part and no doubt we will see some budding footballers or some trying the game for the first time taking part in this event.
