The Football Association of Ireland (FAI) is delighted to announce that the Aviva Soccer Sisters programme will take place virtually in 2021 and return to its traditional Easter date.
Running since 2006, the Aviva Soccer Sisters programme has been invaluable to the development and growth of the women’s game in Ireland since its foundation.
The programme returns to its traditional Easter slot this year, following on from the success of the virtual programme that took place late last year, gaining over 2 million impressions online.
As with last autumn’s virtual camps, the 2021 programme will adhere to Department of Health guidelines with regard to COVID-19.
FAI Head of Grassroots, Ger McDermott said that the camps are a vital part of the FAI calendar.
We look forward with excitement to the Aviva Soccer Sisters camps every year as our clubs and coaches inspire young girls all over the country to play the beautiful game. As we continue to face the uncertainty of the ongoing pandemic, I am delighted that we can collaborate with Aviva to take our camps online in 2021. I look forward to seeing thousands of girls join us at Easter and most importantly to their local football clubs welcoming them as players when we can return to train and playFAI Head of Grassroots, Ger McDermott
After the resounding success of our 2020 Aviva Soccer Sisters online skills hub, we are delighted to return for the Easter break with a brand new programme. Keeping children active during this period of uncertainty is very important, so we will expand our offering with additional activities for young girls to continue to learn and play in a safe environment. We are looking forward to expanding and developing this year’s programme and will announce full details of the 2021 Aviva Soccer Sisters campaign in due course.Aviva Ireland’s Sponsorship Manager, Lisa Bergin
