The Middlesbrough Football Club in the Community Annual Riverside Festival is the premier junior football competition in the North East.
The Riverside Festival teams are mainly made up from local football sides that play in the MFCiC Friday night junior league held at the Community Centre, Eston. Teams entering the leagues back in September were guaranteed entry into the competition. The event saw previous attendance records broken, with over 2500 spectators coming through the turnstiles to cheer on over 70 teams.
As developers of the www.mfcic.co.uk website, Visualsoft were invited to continue their support through Sponsorship of the event.
Visualsoft Sponsored the under 10s Tournament which saw 12 teams from around the Region competing in over 30 games across two league tables. The winners of these leagues, North Ormesby A and Hart Utd then met in the final.
After full time, both sides were tied at 2-2 and after the resulting penalty shootout, North Ormesby A took the trophy. The tournament proved to be a great occasion for all involved and Visualsoft looks forward to supporting next year’s event and continuing to support Middlesbrough Football Club in the Community.
