To celebrate our Westfield Matildas competing in France on the world stage, Northern NSW Football would like to invite your club to partake in the ALDI MiniRoos Matildas in France Celebration Gala Day.
Following a week after Westfield Matildas’ first game in France against Italy on June 9, these fun filled days will allow all players to partake in fun games and activities based around the upcoming tournament. Teams are encouraged to dress up as their favourite Westfield Matildas player and in the Green and Gold and there’s prizes to be won!
From Sunday 16 June, there will be three gala days taking place on consecutive Sundays featuring a day for Mixed 5-8 year olds, Mixed 9-11 year olds, and also a ALDI MiniRoos for Girls gala day for 5-8 year olds.
Clubs can enter as many ALDI MiniRoos teams as they like, both mixed and Girls-Only to play in a round robin Gala Day on our Football FIVE5 pitches at the Lake Macquarie Regional Football Facility. Registering a team gives your players the opportunity to play in a safe, organised, and social environment.
Time is running out so REGISTER now to avoid disappointment!
Each MiniRoos team will play at least three matches on the day and every player will receive a FREE FOOTBALL. There are also full café facilities available for refreshments, food and coffee for parents.
All ALDI MiniRoos Gala Days will be held at the state of the art Lake Macquarie Regional Football Facility, Speers Point on the all-weather, synthetic Football Five5 pitches.
All matches will be 20 minutes in length and will consist of two halves of 10 minutes, with a 5 minute half time break and game leaders will be provided by NNSWF all matches.
