A total of 31 teams will be competing in five different divisions over the next two weeks during the Football Federation of American Samoa (FFAS) Summer Youth League.
“This is one competition we do not intend on missing every year and we are thankful to the Kananfou leaders for allowing us to use their field while ours is under going an upgrade,” FFAS chief executive Tavita Taumua says.
“We are looking forward to watching these young children play and we hope they all enjoy themselves.”
The league kicked off with an opening ceremony on Monday morning, followed by the boys’ 12 to 14 and mixed six to eight age divisions getting the action underway.
