UEFA “Europa Cup” Trophy Primary Schools Visit.
On Friday 6th May 2011 the FAI and UEFA will be bringing the “Europa Cup” trophy to County Carlow as part of the 25th Anniversary of the Carlow & District Football League. Activities on the day will include visits to a number of Primary Schools throughout the County and a Civic reception in the offices of Carlow County Council and then on the celebrations of the 25th Anniversary Dinner Dance.
Local Primary School Tinryland National School will host the “Europa Cup” trophy. This visit will give the school children and teachers an opportunity to get some treasured photographs with the trophy that at the start of the 2010-2011 season was played from by teams from 52 UEFA members (52 countries). Winners of the trophy in the past as the UEFA cup included, Spurs, Liverpool, Real Madrid, Inter Milan and Ajax.
Only 4 counties will have the opportunity to host the “Europa Cup” trophy and we hope that all students, teachers and local club members enjoy the experience.
