STOURPORT 6 A SIDE PLAYERS OFFERED WORLD CUP CHANCE
You Thought The World Cup Was Over – It Isn’t Now!
World Cup Fever hasn’t ended for people in Stourport as 6 a side footballers throughout the town will be able to watch the small sided version this September – before potentially playing in it next year!
The first Socca World Cup takes place in Lisbon, with 32 teams from around the globe – including representatives from England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland – will battle it out for the right to follow France as the winners of the World Prize.
The England Team is being operated by Leisure Leagues – the World’s Largest Provider of small sided football – and that involvement means that players from their leagues in Stourport could be pulling on the Three Lions next time.
Players from the firm’s leagues at Storport Sports Club are being encouraged to follow the example of England’s Harry Maguire, who emerged from the Grass Roots to play a starring role in Russia 2018. “The teams for this year have been picked, but our message to the players is simple: if you impress, next year it could be you!”
The games in Portugal kick off on 23rd September, with England’s first match the day after against Slovakia. Matches will be streamed live via the web at http://soccafederation.com/ where players can be part of the action.
