FilmMyMatch was recently at the headquarters of English Football, St George’s Park, to cover both the Men’s and Women’s UEFA U16 Development tournament. We were there, on behalf of The FA, to cover all matches to provide coaches with analysis material on future international talent.
“UEFA launched the tournaments in 2012, as it feels that the U16 level is a vital period in a youngster’s progress towards elite U17 football - the starting point for UEFA’s national competitions for men’s and women’s teams.
Tournaments are organised with the emphasis on development rather than winning, and coaches are able to give the U16 players invaluable playing time.
The events have a special educational and cultural role. Players learn about key UEFA values such as respect and fair play and, through mixing at the tournaments, discover different countries and their cultures.”
We are proud to be a key delivery partner for The FA in relation to these forward-thinking, progressive football tournaments. This is one of a number of tournaments that we have covered on behalf of The FA down the years and we can’t wait to see the young talent we’re capturing now progress to the world stage!
