Teams have been selected and fixtures have been locked in. Strategies are being fine-tuned and coaches are preparing their final words of wisdom.
Salaam Cup 2018 has attracted 20 communities and clubs across the country bringing together 90+ teams represented by 800+ players between the ages of 5 and 16.
But it is more than a football tournament – it is the largest external event staged by our community this year, bringing together communities and people in the spirit of respect and unity.
The lunch menus promise not to disappoint with our regular backbone offerings together with new additions including Belgian Waffles, German Sausages, Twisted Chips and London Smokehouse!
Whilst you are enjoying the food, participate in the Raffle Draw for a chance to win exciting prizes, including a pair of Emirates Economy Class Tickets to Dubai!
If that is not enough, teams will be able to take pictures with a national symbol of English football, the FA Cup Trophy!
Stanmore Jafferys Football Academy and the Salaamteers are eagerly waiting to welcome the whole community -– children, parents, grandparents – to the fields of Harefield Academy sharing the harmony with our internal and neighbouring communities. Let us ALL once again deliver as ONE TEAM & ONE COMMUNITY.
