Football and farms.
World Cup fever has touched down in Norfolk County, especially on the farm.
A newly formed group dubbed as the ‘Farms of Norfolk Football Association’ is putting on its first ever farm soccer tournament.
It will showcase migrant workers from six different farms.
More teams are in the works of joining.
Coordinator Carrie Sienkowski says it started out by speaking with local migrant workers who wanted to put on an event like this.
Sienkowski noted that getting the teams together was just one part of the equation; the other part is getting the community out to cheer on these teams and show their support.
Many local business partners have signed up to donate prizes or equipment, and the county will be running a kids activity zone on the day as well.
The first game gets underway July 22nd at 9 a.m. at the Simcoe Soccer Field.
