Every year more than 600,000 people play sport across Centennial Parklands, but it’s not every day that a sporting world record is achieved here!
Recently 116 kids from six Sydney football clubs joined forces with Socceroos hero John Aloisi to set a RecordSetter World Record for the Largest Kids Penalty Shoot-out right here in Centennial Parklands.
The kids, all aged between 6-13 years old, came from clubs such as Easts FC, Maccabi and Maroubra United to launch the IGA Future Soccer Stars promotion.
Ex-Socceroo and former Melbourne Heart coach, John Aloisi turned goalie for the first time as the kids lined up to take their shot.
Just for the record – the kids scored 51 goals in total, with Aloisi saving 65…but the true winner was sport, kids and (hopefully) the future of Australian football.
Here’s some shots from the day…
