We Are One Tournament for Out-of-School Settings

Join the We Are One Tournament to commemorate the 24th anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide

We Are One Tournament, Friday 12th July 2019, 5pm - 9pm, Marley Stadium, Keighley. 

The We Are One tournament will unite young people across Britain playing football in memory of the over 8,000 men and boys who were killed in the Srebrenica genocide. In taking part, you will score a public victory against hatred and intolerance in the 24th anniversary year of Srebrenica.

Supported by Asmir Begovic, the FA, Kick it Out, the ESFA and Show Racism the Red Card, we invite schools and youth groups to participate by holding a football match or tournament on Friday 12th July 2019 to join thousands of others across the UK standing up to hatred and intolerance. All participating groups will receive free resources including a Remembering Srebrenica book, stickers for all participants and a short explanatory speech to be read out before kickoff. We ask that a minute’s silence is held before the match to remember the victim of hatred but beyond this broad framework individual schools can tailor the event to your requirements.

We hope your group will join this powerful opportunity for young people to come together through sport to consider the possible outcomes of racism, intolerance and division.

To participate please contact Javed Bashir on 01274-439385 or email javed.bashir@bradford.gov.uk
