Irish internationals David Forde and Stephanie Roche were on hand  to announce the 20 schools who qualified as finalists for the Aviva Health FAI Primary School 5’s. T

There are 15 counties represented from all four provinces after the 20 schools came through county, regional and provincial finals before securing their place at the Aviva Stadium. Over 17,000 children from 1,000 schools across Ireland began the Road to the Aviva in March. The competition caters for primary schools of all sizes and now 160 lucky 5’s players will get the chance to show their skills in the home of Irish football.

David Forde, Irish International goalkeeper and Aviva Health FAI Primary School 5’s Ambassador said; “The Aviva Health FAI Primary School 5’s is a fantastic competition for children. Not only does it get them active and playing football, but it also gives them the chance to play at the Aviva Stadium, something that many professional footballers will never get a chance to do. So for every team that has made the finals this is a great achievement and let’s hope they have an amazing day on Wednesday.”

Alison Burns, MD of Aviva Health said; “This has been a fantastic year for the Aviva Health Primary School 5’s because we’ve seen even more kids and teachers getting involved. The earlier we can encourage children to get & stay active, the fewer health problems these children should face in later life and hopefully they’ll also develop a lifelong love of sport and physical activity. Aviva Health is delighted to welcome all the finalists to Aviva Stadium on 28th May, giving them a chance to play on the same pitch as their heroes!”

The Finals at the Aviva Stadium on Wednesday 28th May will be a fun family day out with DJ Dara Quilty spinning the hits, there will be face painting, samba band and spot prizes given out across the day. Entry to the finals at the Stadium on the day is free for children and €5 for adults.
