UNISON sponsors UK Asian Football Championships
UNISON Scotland is proud to sponsor the UK Asian Football
Championships (UKAFC) for the first time this year.
The UKAFC, now in its eighth year, is the highest profile
Asian football tournament in the UK. Asian players are still
under-represented in the professional football leagues.
The championships aim to be a showcase for current talented
Asian footballers and also to breakdown the barriers for Asians
in sports in the future.
They aim to challenge racism and inequality and breakdown
the stereotypes and perceptions at all levels of the game
not just by playing but by participating in workshops to build
plans for anti-racist work in football during the weekend.
The event also brings together all the communities of Glasgow
in a sporting arena for a fun day out. Asian football teams
from across the UK have competed for the eight places in the
finals with one place reserved for a Scottish team as hosts
of the event.
The early rounds for this years championship will be played
at Glasgow Green on 3 & 4 November with the final at Ibrox
Stadium on 5 November.
The following teams have qualified for this year's tournament:
Semsa (Scotland), Sporting Benegal, London Apsa, Blackburn,
Smethwick Rangers, Albion Sports, London GSA, Smethwick United.
Entry to all games is free so please go along to this fun
family event. For further details contact: Kevin O'Neil Information
