New Directions Education is once more delighted to be working with Cardiff City FC Foundation to bring you the Girls U13 Tournament for 2016. The competition will take place on the 24th November 2016 and we are looking for 32 teams from school years 7 and 8 to join us at Cardiff International Sports Stadium.




Cardiff City FC Women’s Team Manager Damian Flynn has been involved in the development on the Women’s game for over 6 years. He expressed the importance the tournament plays for inspiring and finding young talented female footballers:


“Over the past few years the tournament has been a great opportunity for year 7 & 8 girls to showcase their footballing abilities. Many girls have been invited to the girls development centre where they continue to grow as footballers.”


“I’ve also noticed a large number of the girls who play in the tournament attend our Girls Only Soccer Schools, so it’s great to see the tournament entice a new audience, and next generation of female footballers”.
