Reds in the Community are looking for five-a-side teams to compete in a FREE tournament to celebrate Refugee Week 2018.
On Monday 18th June, sides from around South Yorkshire will be meeting at Oakwell to compete in the One World Cup from 1:30-3:30pm.
The aim of the tournament, which will be run in partnership with Red Cross and the Refugee Council, is to raise awareness of the needs of refugees and help bring different areas of local communities together.
The One World Cup is the latest event which has been organised by Reds in the Community to support refugees and asylum seekers.
RITC has been backing local refugee side ‘African Tigers,’ who were set up by Jaber Abdullah with a couple of friends in 2015 and has since grown astonishingly, now operating two teams.
In March, one of the African Tigers sides faced our education first team in a friendly at Oakwell, winning 3-2 in what was a memorable occasion.
And in April, RITC joined football clubs from around the UK in celebrating the Amnesty Football Welcomes weekend.
The Tigers team travelled to West Yorkshire to face one of the Leeds United Foundation’s sides before watching Barnsley FC take on the Whites at Elland Road.
To enter a side into the competition, all you need to do is enter your team name and the contact details for a representative of the team on the form at the bottom of this page.
