Josephian fustal carnival attracts large number of teams

By T.B. Rahaman

An increased number of teams have agreed to participate in the 4th  Josephian Futsal Carnival 2012 to be held at Darley Road on November 10.

The number of teams participating will be 150 from 40 schools this year including four teams from Jaffna and two teams from the East.

The Carnival organized by the Josephian College advisory committee are endeavouring to make it an even better tournament for the age groups of under 19, 17, 15, 13 and 10. Their objective is to give more impetus for the development of soccer among school children.

The tournament will decide winners in the Cup, Bowl, Plate and Saucer championships. This will give a chance for every team to win in either of these categories. Eleven courts will be made available to play matches simultaneously.

Standard Chartered and Cargills are the sponsors of this tournament with a generous contribution coming from Sri Lankans living in Italy as well.

Teams from Jaffna and the East will be given accommodation at the College premises as they will have to come one day prior to the Carnival. Other teams should try to arrive at the ground by 7.30 a.m. as the tournament will kick off at 8 a.m. and finish by 5.30 p.m.

Rev. Fr. Gemunu Dias, deputy Rector of St. Joseph’s, Rev. Fr. Samith Fernando, Prefect of Games of St. Joseph’s, Desmond Joseph, of the advisory committee and several past Josephian soccerites participated in the media briefing.
