With the school holidays in full swing, young people will get a kick out of a new soccer event coming to Wyndham.

The first-ever Wyndham Sports Fest YOUTH CUP will be held in Truganina on Friday.

Hundreds of young people are expected to attend the one-day tournament, which is open to teams of players aged 12 to 25.

Wyndham mayor and sports development portfolio holder Peter Maynard, said the inaugural event was being run in partnership with the council’s Youth Services, Football Federation Victoria, Melbourne Victory Football Club, Reclink Australia and Park Social Soccer Co.

“Soccer is more popular than ever, especially following the recent World Cup, so we’re expecting a lot of young people to take part in this great event,” Cr Maynard said.

“There will be prizes, giveaways, food trucks, free activities for kids and, of course, the main event.”

The tournament will be held on Friday, October 5, from 9am-4pm at the Arndell Park Community Centre, 29-49 Federation Boulevard, Truganina.
