This week, Blackburn Rovers hosted their ‘RoverStars’ event in Bahrain, in association with The Bahrain Football Association.

The seven-a-side football tournament for Under-17 players is an initiative organised by Rovers’ owners, Venky’s.
 
The annual event has previously been held in Hong Kong and India. 

The tournament involved 38 local Bahrain players, who were nominated by their clubs.  
 
At the end of the tournament, five players were selected by Rovers scouts to attend a two-week training programme at Rovers’ Academy later in the year.
