Mooneys Hyundai Sponsors Cabinteely FC Mini World Cup 2019
Mooney’s Hyundai was delighted to sponsor the Cabinteely FC Mini World Cup 2019. Cabinteely FC is based in the Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council managed Kilbogget Park. The current club was formed in 1967, as Auburn FC, and began league football with only one team.
In 1973, the club’s name was changed to Cabinteely Boys FC, to better represent the entire neighbourhood. At this time, it had only six teams – all boys. The name was changed to Cabinteely FC during the early ‘noughties’, to reflect both the numbers of individual girl members and its excellent girls and ladies’ teams.
The majority of current teams’ range in age from U-7 to U-18 and play in the Dublin & District Schoolboys League (DDSL) and the EBS South Dublin Football League (SDFL). In addition, the club fields a number of girl’s teams and a very successful senior ladies’ team in the Dublin Women's Soccer League (DWSL). There is also a Special Olympics ‘Cougars’ squad who also play in monthly blitzes during the season.
The Mini World Cup has been running for 30 years and is the highlight of the summer in Killbogget Park in Cabinteely.
The event took place from the 4th to the 15th of June with 7 match days over this period. The Cabinteely Football Club, Mini World Cup raises vital funds for the club and its activities over the year.
The event saw over 1100 kids take part over the 7 match days. 2,023 goals scored throughout the event. 18 football pitches were used each day during the event in Cabinteely Football Club grounds. The event had 421 officials overseeing the matches, a big thank you to these officials, without these the event wouldn’t be possible.
