Street Soccer London were proud to host our very first Winter Cup last week, as over 120 kids came together to enjoy a five-a-side tournament in Lambeth.
Consisting of group stages and tiered knockouts, 17 teams arrived at the Black Prince’s Trust in high spirits. Although this was first taste of competitive football in a while for some, the vibrant atmosphere remained at the forefront as Street Soccer players engaged with teenagers across the city, making new friends in the process.
Street Soccer staff were on hand to ensure all of the teams across both the boys and girls competitions felt welcome and safe. Big well done to our winning teams who picked up their trophies across the various knockout competitions.
Rockingham FC claimed glory in the boys ‘Champions League’ knockouts, with FAST winning the ‘Europa League’ tier. Street Soccer London entered three teams across the day and one of which secured silverware in the ‘Conference League’ boys knockouts.
In the girls event, Fulham FC Foundation and Chelsea FC Foundation won the ‘Champions League’ and ‘Europa League’ trophies, respectively.
This event was a great opportunity for our players to interact with new friends across London and raised good awareness for our programmes taking place in Lambeth and Nine Elms.
Drop-in sessions are available across the week with Adult drop ins and Girls U16 sessions starting to gain momentum on Fridays. For more information, click here.
We thank all the teams who joined us on the day to celebrate our first ever small-sided football event, we look forward to engaging with everyone again in the near future.
