Why attend a Fun Flair Festival?

Revolutionising Talent Discovery

We believe that football should be about skill, not just connections. That's why we're breaking down barriers and smashing unfair biases. We've designed Fun Flair Festivals to identify exceptional talent, no matter where you come from or who you know.

Show your playing level

Our coaches will assess the skills and talents of all attendees through a series of games, drills, and skill tests. By analysing the players in attendance, we'll evaluate the performance of all participants and select the top performers.
