2010: Official launch of the Plymouth Hope Football Festival
Please read about last year's fantastic inaugural event:
'The first PHFC Football Festival was run on the 10th July 2010 at Brickfields, Plymouth. The event of football and family activities was funded thanks to the Community cash Grant awarded to the club by the Devon Community Foundation. The festival was run and organised by members of Plymouth Hope FC with the fantastic support of Plymouth Guild, START, British Trust for Conservation Volunteers (BTCV), Devon and Cornwall Refugee Support and Plymouth Generations Together. Careful planning meant that the event coincided with the weekend of the World Cup final when football fever was at its greatest!
The aim of the tournament was to host an event where players and teams within Plymouth could come together to enjoy football and to provide activities for their and other local families. The 6 aside tournament catered for 16 teams, made up of local clubs and community group teams (church groups, company teams, etc). The diversity of the teams was reflected in the players who came from a wide background - locals, refugees, asylum seekers and international students. In total over 150 players turned out for a great day that resulted in victory for All Nations FC. Football was played in a good spirit, with referees provided by the Plymouth league.
Great fun was had off the pitch too, with a bouncy castle, mini-sportsday games, face painting and music to keep kids entertained. START and their volunteers took care of the catering and provided free food to all, which was delicious and thoroughly enjoyed. The event was also supported by local marquee hire company Really Good Marquees, who erected and supplied a discounted marquee.
After the trophies and medals were awarded to the winners, all players received certificates for taking part, as did the event volunteers. The first PHFC Festival was hailed a great success and was unique in achieving PHFC's wider goals of promoting recreation, community spirit and social cohesion in Plymouth. Many thanks to all involved and we look forward to a bigger and better event in 2011!'.
