On Saturday 27th February, MCB Football Academy (MCBFA) teams won three medals at FootFive indoor tournament. FootFive Mauritius is the first private indoor soccer centre, located in Bagatelle Mall.
In the 8-9 years old category, MCBFA won the silver and bronze medals and also struck bronze among the 11 year-olds.
Our young football players were enthusiastic about the new concept of indoor soccer also known as Futsal .
The other participating teams were: Football First, Racing Club, Baie du Tombeau , Riverland, CSSC, Mangalkhan.
MCB Football Academy is a social integrated project that allows boys and girls aged 6 to 11 years, living in disadvantaged areas, to learn football under the guidance of qualified coaches.
The objective is to ensure that the child develops a “healthy mind in a healthy body”, within a supportive environment in preparation for the future.
To be a part of the MCBFA, it is imperative to attend school. A team consisting of coaches, educators and therapists monitor the sports and academic background of each child, and accompanies each family.
