Football Fever- Kids Edition

Hi folks,

As the adults are all heated up for the World Cup, we have an exciting and common bonding place for the kids and parents alike to immerse in the World Cup fever specially organised by Kidzania.

From 9 June to 8 July, KidZania SportZ 2018,

Kidzania is organising a month-long KidZania SportZ football-themed activities like futsal, foosball and table-top football phenomenon Subbuteo, which also include special appearances from the Malaysia Blind Football Team and an exclusive workshop led by the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) Grassroots team.This would be such an inspiring and eye-opening event for the kids!

Imagine the kids and their parents who visit KidZania Kuala Lumpur will be able to learn more about Blind Football and try scoring goals while being blindfolded in a special session with Malaysia Blind Football Team, and join football experts from FAM Grassroots as they provide an exclusive coaching session at the establishment. Definitely and unforgettable experience for the families!

“With the current spotlight on football, it’s the perfect time to get kids excited about playing sports and being active,” said Shahrul Nizar Ahmad, Mayor of KidZania Kuala Lumpur.“Sports is more than a healthy pastime, it improves coordination, builds confidence and helps develop social skills. Games can also teach kids about cooperation and teamwork; these are important aspects of growing up and we are proud to present ‘KidZania SportZ’for the second time, giving children more opportunities to ‘Learn Life Today’.”

Other Football-themed Highlights at KidZania SportZ 2018:
  • Futsal: Practice dribbling skills in a 2V2 match, or try to score a goal while blindfolded!
  • Foosball:This intense game puts hand-eye coordination to the test. Great for all ages!
  • Subbuteo: Try the new table-top football phenomenon!
  • Football Video Game:This virtual challenge brings the game to life in a different way! 

"We are happy to provide our support to encourage greater interest in football among children through programmes like KidZania SportZ, elevating their appreciation of the game and inspiring more children to play. Every journey in Football begins at the Grassroots." said YBhg Dato' Hamidin bin Hj Mohd Amin, General-Secretary of the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM).

Sunny Shalesh, Coach of Malaysia Blind Football Team added, “This is a great opportunity for us to work with children and show them what they can accomplish despite challenges like blindness. Our team is an example that adversity can be overcome and we hope to pass on this valuable lesson to the children.” 

Great fun for kids as well as us, the parents, KidZania SportZ 2018 also features a range of other activities such as bike training, table tennis robot training, archery(a sport I have wanted to explore myself! lolx) and even finger skateboarding (wow, ever heard of 'tis?)!
