A new approach is being undertaken in New Caledonia as the Fédération Calédonienne de Football works at igniting a passion for football among the nation’s women and girls.
“La Belle et le Foot” or the Beauty and the Football is a new event launched by the FCF on Saturday 10 October, 2020.
The event is aimed at a range of age groups including U-7, U-9, U-11, U-13, U-15, U-18 and seniors, with the first festival attracting a good group to the FCF technical centre in Païta.
The second edition was held Saturday 17 October on Maré and the third is set to take place this Saturday on Lifou. The final Loyalty Island of Ouvéa will welcome the festival on 31 October before Poindimié in the main island’s north, on 7 November. The final event is scheduled for La Foa, situated roughly half-way up the west coast, on Saturday 28 November.
La Belle et le Foot is open to anyone, licensed to a club or not, aged from 6 years and up.
