A feast of fantastic football and fabulous food is heading to Pembroke Castle in May, raising money for 2 Wish.

The Chomp-i-ons League Festival, being organised by Pembrokeshire County Council’s Regeneration and Business Support teams, will see Street Football teams take to the pitches within the magnificent Castle walls while supporters and families enjoy great food, music and fun.

The event will be held on Friday, May 24 at Pembroke Castle between 4pm and 10pm. Tickets are free but need to be booked online via Eventbrite (search for ‘Chompions’ in Pembrokeshire).

Inflatable football courts and target practice will keep the little ones busy while Samba Doc, street dancers and Pure West Radio provide the Bank Holiday weekend vibe.

Donations for 2 Wish are appreciated at the point of entry.

2 Wish was set up by Rhian Mannings, originally from Neyland, following the sudden deaths of her baby son George and husband Paul within five days in 2012. The charity supports parents across Wales who suddenly suffer bereavement.

Local sponsors are also being sought to support the event with a range of opportunities available. Contact [email protected]

The ethos of the event is team and family fun, inclusion and fair play while also celebrating Pembrokeshire’s exciting street food scene.

Teams will consist of 10 players aged 16+ with four players from each side on the court at any one time with rolling substitutions. Entry is £100 per team. See the Facebook page for details

One of the organisers is former professional footballer Jo Price, who is now Community Regeneration Officer at Pembrokeshire County Council.

A big champion of Street Football, Jo, who has played for Arsenal and Wales, has also been named Head Coach for the Wales Street Football Women’s National Team for a tournament held in Dublin later this year.

Jo Price said: “It is about team work, enjoyment and inclusion and what could be better for a Bank Holiday weekend than food and football, music and fun and all for such a great cause?”
