Having successfully played host to Olympic Games over the past few weeks, Cardiff’s reputation as a venue for elite sport is well established. The Labour Council is now taking further action to underline its commitment to grass roots level sport by waiving football fees for hundreds of junior and mini football teams.
…the previous administration … got their priorities wrong
The announcement will see fees removed for all Cardiff and District Junior and Mini Leagues played throughout the city’s parks and pitches as well as waiving fees collected for the 2011/2012 season. Clubs should be in receipt of the refunds within the next few days.
This move recognises the need to support voluntary sports clubs, and will provide an incentive for children to get involved with sport in the city.
Cardiff is already renowned as a major sporting destination playing host to competitions from the FA Cup and The Ashes to this year’s Olympics and the removal of fees at this level is part of a drive to make sports and leisure as accessible as possible to start inspiring the sporting stars of tomorrow.
