IPSWICH Town Community Trust are holding a day of football celebrating the World Cup - here on your doorstep.

Ipswich Town Community Trust and partner organisations including Team Ipswich will host teams representing countries from around the world that will in turn, be allocated a World Cup finalist to play for. Those involved will compete for the 'One Community World Cup'.

The competition is part of the football club and Trust's strong stance against racism and efforts to bring local communities together.

In total 18 teams from around the world took part in last year's adult male five-a-side tournament including Togo, Kurdistan, Kenya, England, Portugal, India, Bangladesh, Albania and Poland. The tournament lasted all day and saw over 144 players compete to become the tournament winners.

Carolyn Shaw, Active Projects Manager for Ipswich Town Community Trust said: “Football has a universal language and has the power to bring people together. The 'One Community Cup' will unite the diverse communities of our county for a really fantastic day of football.”

Martin Sheeran, Suffolk Constabulary's Hate Crime Officer, added: “What better way is there of uniting the communities of multi-cultural Suffolk? I am sure there will be a competitive edge and a winning team on the day, but the overall winner, will be football and the way it bridges any divides that may have existed between varying communities.
