Friday 18 May 2012
Manchester CFA is holding an inclusive 6-a-side football tournament to show its support for Annual Refugee Week, a UK-wide programme celebrating the diversity and contributions that refugees bring to the UK.
Annual Refugee week runs from 18-24 June, and the tournament, held in conjunction with Refugee Action, Salford Health Improvement Team and Manchester Communication Academy, is taking place on 23 June.
John Hurst, Social Inclusion co-ordinator at Manchester CFA, said: "We’re delighted again to be involved this season and hope to build on last season’s success. Football is such a powerful tool, which brings people together whatever their background or history and this season's tournament will leave a lasting sporting legacy here in Manchester."
Hosted at Manchester Communication Academy, the team entry submission deadline is 15 June at 12pm.
