Football to take part in Norton Street Italian Festa


Quite possibly the largest street festival in Australia, the ever popular Norton Street Italian Festa held in Leichhardt will take shape this Sunday with Football making its mark as one of the 240 stalls that will see well over 125,000 people take in the sights and sounds at Sydney’s ‘Little Italy’.

The Canterbury District Soccer Football Association along with Hyundai A-League side Sydney FC, the AIA Vitality MiniRoos as well as Bubble Soccer will all be flying the football flag and will have activations from 10am to 5pm.

Bubble Soccer, MiniRoos inflatable targets, Sydney FC Children’s Football clinics which will showcase 5-a-side skills and games and the 2016 NSW State Freestyle Football Titles Finals are just some of the activities that will feature at the much loved festival.

There will also be an opportunity for interested players and officials to register playing in next year’s Canterbury District Soccer Football Association making this a must see event this coming Sunday.

Supported by the Leichhardt Council, this Festival is set to be a fun, family day out which will also include carnival rides, jumping castles, animal farms, face painting and puppet shows for the kids, organic markets, entertainment, concerts, dancing and free cooking demonstrations by the best Italian professional chefs plus the best local Italian Nonnas!

All mixed in with hundreds of stall holders showcasing and selling the latest, the unusual and the best in products, and food, coffee and gelato to die for.
