Niamh Challenge Cup

We are delighted to announce that the mini tournament between Ellan Vannin and Alderney has now become an International Football Festival, with four teams. We, as CONIFA, have now sanctioned the tournament, the winner gaining automatic entry to the 2016 CONIFA World Football Cup.

The four competing teams will be Ellan Vannin, Felvidek, Panjab FA and Alderney. The matches will be held on Saturday 30th May and Sunday 31st May at the Bowl in Douglas.

As well as an International Football tournament this will be a family affair with various entertainment and attractions, both on and off the pitch, between the games as well as the usual food outlets.

We are also delighted that NIAMH’s parents Chris and Sam Curry will be present at the tournament along with her sister Hannah. We are sure that the Isle of Man will support the fantastic work their charity,, is doing in memory of their daughter.

The tournament will commence at 11.30am on the Saturday with Felvidek v Alderney and then at 2.30pm Ellan Vannin v Panjab.

Sunday will see the two runners up from Saturday’s matches kick off at 2PM with the Final at 5PM. All times are local time (GMT).
