Crewe World Cup 2019
Ghana Kings emerge victorious in Cheshire FA’s Crewe World Cup tournament.
On Saturday 10TH August, 2019 we hosted the inaugural Crewe World Cup Tournament at the Cumberland Arena in partnership with Crewe Town Council and Everybody Leisure.
The men’s 7 a side tournament was attended by 70 Crewe residents from all over the world who represented their country in the tournament.
Teams representing England, East Timor, Ghana, Poland, Iraq and more all competed against each to claim the trophy.
The eventual winners were the Ghana Kings who emerged as Champions after beating Poland in a dramatic penalty shootout.
The closely competed final ended 1-1 after a last minute equaliser from Poland took the game to penalties.
Cheshire FA, Football Development Officer, Daniel Landstrom said ‘The Crewe World Cup event was staged to bring different nationalities together and celebrate the strong football community and cultural diversity within the town. Football should be enjoyed by all and we used the event to promote the coaching and playing opportunities available to people from different countries. The teams all enjoyed the event and all the games were competitive. Hopefully, we can build on this year’s tournament and make it bigger and better next time engaging even more teams.’
The event was funded by Kick It Out, English footballs equality and inclusion organisation which is at the heart of the fight against discrimination for everyone who plays, watches or works in football.
We are committed to embracing inclusion and removing discrimination within the game.
