28 May St. Francis F.C. Enjoy TAR Youth Football Tournament in Spain
TAR is a youth football tournament based in the Catalonian region of Spain, specifically Montseny. The latest edition of the TAR football tournament took place from April 28 – 29, featuring teams from predominantly Spain, but also the likes of Finland too, without forgetting Dublin’s own St. Francis F.C. who DB Sports Tours worked with on this specific football trip to Spain.
TAR is a strong youth football tournament, which this year included RCD Espanyol, Real Madrid and FC Barcelona. St. Francis F.C. played a total of five matches during their time competing in TAR. The Dublin outfit picked up one win and lost four times, albeit often narrowly, during a thoroughly enjoyable time and beneficial tournament for their young careers.
St. Francis F.C. picked up a win in their final game, beating Spanish side Saint Miquel De Balenya 3-0. Their 5-1 loss to RCD Espayanol didn’t look so bad as this youth football tournament progressed either; the Catalonian side end up beating Real Madrid in the semi-finals and FC Barcelona in the final!
