The county’s 2017 Festival of Football hosted by Devon FA and powered by Pro Direct takes place Saturday 26th & Sunday 27th August. The annual festival sees Under 9, Under 10, Under 11 and Under 12 teams compete in 7-a-side and 9-a-side tournaments respectively.

This annual festival showcases and celebrates all the great youth football that takes place across Devon each season.

Event Details

Over the course of the weekend we will be raising money for Devon FA’s Brand New Charity Partner for 2017/18. There will be a £1 entry fee for all adult spectators – the entirety of this fee will go straight to the Charity. We will also be running a 50/50 draw on each day where 50% of the proceeds will go to the winner, 25% will go to the Devon FA and 25% will go to the Charity. There will also be collection pots around on the day and any further donations will be much appreciated.

The Cornerflag Bar will be open on both days and will be serving hot food & drinks.

The weekend promises to be exciting, action packed and will be a great way for teams to kick start their season ahead of the opening weekend.

We look forward to welcoming everybody to Coach Road over the course of the two days and hope that everybody enjoys the event.
