BWCI continues Mini Soccer Festival support

Tuesday 19 March 2019

Headline sponsor BWCI has reaffirmed its support for the Guernsey Football Association's Mini Soccer Festival for the next three years.

BWCI actuaries, consultants, insurance and pensions specialists have supported the event for the past 12 years.

Chairman of the Guernsey Football Association, Chris Schofield has welcomed the latest extension to the partnership: "The continued and generous sponsorship from BWCI is instrumental in ensuring that the GFA can continue to host what is such a fantastic mini soccer festival for the children in Year 4 and 5.

"This tournament is held in high esteem and is widely recognised as being a highlight of the local football calendar. It plays a key role in supporting the development of out young players and the teams, players and coaches who are participating will undoubtedly be looking forward all season to the festival.

"The festival has a fantastic reputation, evidence by the fact that we continue to attract professional academy teams, along with visiting teams from Jersey and England, whilst for out local clubs it is seen as an important event that showcases all that is positive in Guernsey football."

This year's festival will take place on 20 and 21 July.

BWCI's Managing Partner Diana Simon said: "2019 is a very special year for the BWCI Group as it marks our 40th anniversary in the Channel Islands. As part of our celebrations we are delighted to be able to announce that we will be supporting the BWCI Mini soccer Festival for the next three years. The festival is a fantastic opportunity for our local teams to get a taste of what it is like to play against some of the top UK Academy teams."
