Paul O’Sullivan, Head of Marketing, Volkswagen Group Ireland commented: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to become part of such a prestigious competition and to support the stars of the future and to help them on their way. It is with great pleasure that I will welcome all our teams, managements, referees, media, parents and supporters to the A.U.L complex for the Volkswagen Junior Masters Ireland competition. While the winning of trophies is the aim, sport provides a wonderful opportunity to build long lasting friendships, learn important life skills and create memories.”
“We hope that the Volkswagen Junior Masters will support younger players and help them to develop their soccer skills. It’s also a wonderful way to connect with Irish soccer communities. I would like to wish all the players the very best of luck over what I am sure will be a very exciting weekend of soccer.”
