* Taipei Preschooler Football Games, the greatest event of its kind in Taipei City, is about to kick off again.

The Department of Sports has promoted football for a number of years, and it has now become a highly coveted competition among many kindergartens. The 10th Taipei Preschooler Football Games will be held on May 18 and 19 at the Taipei Stadium this week. Coinciding with the event's 10th anniversary, the competition's 162 team spots filled up just 2 days after registrations opened, demonstrating the immense popularity of the event.

The pre-game press conference was held today (May 13), inviting kindergarten entrants that have never missed a game for 9 years, including Taipei Baoren Kindergarten and S.F.C., to share with the audience their development in the Taipei Preschooler Football Games over the last decade. Besides stressing the importance of preschoolers maintaining a habit of exercising, it is hoped that all the little athletes will be able to enjoy the game and perform well.

This year, the ball presentation tradition from last year will continue, where a representative from the Department of Sports, Taipei City Government will present footballs to kindergarten children in need, thereby conveying love and care to more school children and allowing them to enjoy football.

According to the Commissioner of the Department of Sports Li Tzai-li, after 9 years of progress, he believes that the Taipei Preschooler Football Games has contributed to the development of football in Taiwan.
