Chelsea FC IDC Singapore, based at East Campus, held a U9 boys and girls mixed football
festival on Saturday 22 September. The focus for of the festival was to promote
participation opportunities for boys and girls, set a fun environment without pressure of
winning or losing.

The students were put into and environment where there were no scores kept, points, or
goals scored. We didn’t want the focus to be on the competition or having a clear winner
but everyone enjoying playing football and running around with a smile on their faces.
Dragons entered three mixed boys and girls teams, Tanglin Trust School entered two with
the last two slots filled by Chelsea FC IDC Singapore teams, with a total of means 8 teams
participating.

The parents were amazing in supporting their children being supportive of them on
projecting positivity across the two hours, cheering and clapping could be heard for all
teams creating an enjoyable day.
