The McDonalds FOOTBALLPLUS For Kids programme is an MFA initiative which seeks to IMPROVE THE IMAGE OF THE GAME OF THE PEOPLE and which for the last three years was run between February and May with Educational Football Festivals being held in various localities. No less than 1000 local kids participate in these festivals every year.
The Youth F.A. and McDonalds play an important role in making this programme a success.
Saturday’s Final Event Programme included Football & Fun Activities·and obviously the draws, with the main draw being made by Mr. Paul Dragan, General Manager of McDonalds (Malta).
During the breaks, McDonalds provided the Kids with mineral water bottles and fruit packs.
