SPAR Scotland proudly supports the SPAR Future Stars Cup

April 26, 2024 IN THE CATEGORY: Sport sponsorship

SPAR Scotland’s successful festival of football for Scottish school girls, called SPAR Future Stars, took place at Broadwood Stadium, Glasgow on 27 March 2024.

In partnership with the Scottish Football Association, SPAR Scotland has given girls grassroots football a boost by introducing the SPAR Scotland Future Stars Cup. This year, 226 teams and over 3,000 girls from across the country took part in the tournament, the highest number to date.

The SPAR Future Stars is running for the third year. The winning schools, St Ninians High School and Ross High School, were presented with the SPAR Future Stars Cup for their respective age groups.

The finals day is the culmination of months of local and regional tournaments taking place nationwide. 36 teams (350 girls) made it through to the finals day held at Broadwood Stadium.

Colin McLean, CEO of SPAR Scotland, said: “This is the third year we have supported the SPAR Future Stars footballing event for schoolgirls, and the tournament is going from strength to strength. We cannot believe that 3,000 girls from schools all over the country have taken part in the tournament this year – it’s a significant number.

“This year saw over 20 extra teams participating in the tournament with registrations and sign ups from some local schools starting as soon as last year’s finals day finished.  It’s deeply satisfying to help create a platform that allows girls to come together and play in a fun, safe but highly competitive environment.

“We’re already planning for Future Stars 2025 with our objective to encourage even more young girls to get involved and have some fun at a local and national level.”
