The Campbell River Youth Soccer Association successfully hosted the Mini World Cup of soccer over the weekend.
Teams from all over the Island, as well as one from Whitehorse made the trip for the tournament. Each of the 1,200 kids, between the ages of eight and 11 got to play four games with their team. There were referees, but the scores weren’t recorded.
The highlight of the weekend was the Parade of Nations on Saturday afternoon. The teams marched with the flags of the countries they were assigned to represent, chanting and wearing costumes. The Cermaq turf field at Robron park has never been so colourful.
