This year ITT Dublin are celebrating their 20th Anniversary and they have worked with local football clubs and organisations to host the prestigious CFAI Umbro Finals. It is the second time the finals have been held at Tallaght. The finals previously took place at the Dublin venue in 1997 under its previous guise as Tallaght RTC.

The collaboration between ITT Dublin and the CFAI follows on from last year's successful Guinness World Record breaking penalty shootout attempt, at Tallaght Stadium. The attempt, supported by local schools and businesses in the Tallaght area, saw the CFAI celebrate its 40th anniversary by scoring 1401 continuous penalties, almost doubling the previous record of 748 held by America's MLS.
