Fort McMurray has once again received the honour to host a provincial sports event.
This time the Fort McMurray Youth Soccer Association placed a successful bid to host the 2017 U14 Tier II boys and girls outdoor provincial soccer championships on Aug. 11 – 13, 2017 at the Syncrude Athletic Park.
There will be 17, U14 teams will be coming to Fort McMurray, including eight boys teams and nine girls teams.
The Championships are a fantastic opportunity for young soccer players in Alberta to showcase their skills and abilities, and a tremendous chance for Fort McMurray to demonstrate its excellent soccer facilities and hospitality.
“The acceptance of Fort McMurray’s bid is a great opportunity for young players in our community,” said Aaron Bessong, Chair of the volunteer planning committee. “These Championships will be extra special for our U14 team as they get to play in their own community in front of families and friends.”
Bessong told MyMcMurray that our local U14 boys team has had tremendous success this season and looks forward to watching them play in the competition.
They traveled to four other tournaments and took home three gold and one silver medal.
