The fields at Louis-Riel Dôme were the venue for the first Winter Festival organized by FCBEscola Ottawa, a tournament for more than 200 young athletes aged 7 to 14 years from different academies and clubs based in and around the Canadian capital, with FCBEscola Toronto featuring as special guests.
It was a veritable fiesta for the children, involving 55 back-to-back 25-minute matches and generating a wonderful atmosphere among the participants. The excellent organisation by FCBEscola Ottawa means that a date has already been set for a second edition of this tournament on March 25.
