Khalsa Football Federation 2014 Tournament Launch
St George’s Park National Football Centre, Thursday 20th March 2014, 3pm to 5.30pm, DE13 9PD
From its inception in 1987, the KFF has grown in popularity enormously and is now considered to be one of the most inspiring Asian amateur football organisations in the UK.
As such, their events are looked forward to with a huge degree of anticipation and excitement. Central to the ethos of the KFF is the development and enjoyment of grassroots community football.
Its extensive reach is national and the fun annual tournament will be hosted in Walsall, Hounslow (London), Leicester, Derby and Birminghamduring the 2014 summer.
Driven by the community it serves, it has grown organically to 56 senior teams and 36 junior teams, and encourages everyone to get active and showcase their talent. Naturally, this helps to build and cement friendships across communities through a shared appreciation of football.
PURPOSE OF OUR LAUNCH
The KFF has been at the forefront of the Asian amateur football scene for decades and this year it is looking to what it can do more to encourage young people at their host events to get involved in football, along with other sports, while growing the event from its substantial and loyal base.
With this in mind, alongside our partners, we are introducing two extra elements into this year’s 2014 Tournament. This year attendees will be able to get a taste for a range of other sporting activities such as Athletics, Badminton, Cricket, Gatka, Hockey, Powerlifting, Tennis and Volleyball.
Our strong partnership with local football clubs at each host city means their coaches will be running training sessions for the younger age groups. It also offers a chance for interaction with the community and their local club at all levels.
