St Helena Football Association has for the first time in its almost 100-year existence been invited to an international football tournament in YNYS MON (Anglesey) in Wales to compete with other small islands on the 15-22nd June 2019.

 

This presents a perfect opportunity for the island to showcase its talented football players and market itself to the world. It also is an opportunity for us as an association to nurture the talent that has been exhibited over several years so that it can finally be identified by European based scouts. 30 players have registered for the prestigious right to represent St Helena for the first time in the football fraternity. Of the registered players, 20 players will be selected to travel to Wales and they started training for the tournament on the 3rd of September 2018.

 

To make this dream a reality SHFA has estimated that funding to the tune of £80,000.00 will be required. SHFA has initiated some fundraising initiatives that are promising to yield positive returns.

We currently have raised half of our target and are trying to find more sponsors.

 

The St Helena team is planning to arrive in Ynys Mon on the 5th June and will train and play some friendly matches prior to their group games with the Shetland Islands and Guernsey

 

. The trip to Wales will be a historic one for football on the island of Saint Helena. Come be part of this history making event that will change the face of football on the island.
