Foundation Round-Up: EFL Kids Cup, 'Get Into Security', Christmas Soccer Schools...


Read on for a full round-up of the past week at the Cardiff City FC Foundation...

U11 Kids Cup tournament launched

After last week’s partnership was announced, we wasted no time in re-launching the U11 New Directions EFL Kids Cup for this year. Having had such a successful event last time out with over 160 teams taking part, this year Cardiff City FC Foundation and New Directions are looking to increase this number – with qualification taking place in the first fortnight of December.

Workshops restarted across South Wales

Following the conclusion of the half-term holidays, our coaches went back out into schools across South Wales to deliver their tailored literacy, numeracy and health sessions. Penllwyne Primary, Penygawsi Primary, and Milbank Primary were all involved in combining football with learning after their week off. There was also a visit to Cardiff City Stadium for Llanfair Primary School, as they received a PHSE workshop and a stadium tour at the home of Cardiff City.

‘Get Into: Security’ course comes to an end

Following the two-week course held by Cardiff City Foundation, Rubicon Security and the Prince’s Trust Wales, 16 participants received their certificates after they learned new skills and are now ready to succeed in the security industry.

There are also new courses within Hospitality, Media and Coaching all coming soon, for more information go to:
