The second free Moreton Bay United Invitational is being held on Sunday at Wolter Park – this time for Under 8 and Under 9 players.
Eighteen teams from eight clubs – Jets, ACE, Samford Rangers, The Lakes, Pine Hills, UQ, Narangba and North Star – will be in action during the day.
Starting at 10am, there will be group matches and a final at 4pm, followed by Select team matches against Jets’ SAP Under 9s and between two Select Under 8 sides.
“The last invitational was a huge success, we are excited to now showcase the region’s Under 8 and Under 9 talent,” said Jets’ Head of Junior Development Macca Smith.
“As the only North Brisbane Gold-rated academy club we have a responsibility to engage with the community, provide pathways for players and allow access to a tournament of this scale for free.
“Players will have matches recorded throughout the day on our veo platforms, the chance to be picked for the Select Team matches, at the least three or four matches and a final series to strive for!”
The Invitational is again sponsored by iSponsor, who also supported the hugely-successful first event for Under 10-12 players.
iSponsor was launched in 2020 to help sporting clubs, charities and P&Cs raise funds.
Through an easy-to-use shopping app, it connects local businesses to the organisations as a form of sponsorship.
