Looking back on an action-packed summer...
A busy July and August saw plenty of tournaments, fundraising events, Soccer Schools and volunteering projects for the Community Sports Foundation’s participants and staff.
Here’s an in-brief recap of what we got up to:
The twentieth edition of the Summer Cup tournament, notable for being the first one played at the Community Sports Foundation’s new hub The Nest, was held over two weekends and welcomed over 180 grassroot teams and 1,750 players from across East Anglia.
As well as the grassroots competition, the Foundation invited 12 different clubs from across the country to take part in a pan-disability tournament. The competition featured teams from Manchester City (City in the Community), the Chelsea FC Foundation, Arsenal Community and eventual winners Middlesbrough FC Foundation, among others.
A record 6,199 runners took on our annual Run Norwich 10km.
Runners swept through the 10km city centre course, passing iconic landmarks such as the Castle, Carrow Road and Norwich Cathedral, spurred on by the passionate support from tens of thousands of spectators and over 450 volunteers.
Fundraisers running for the Community Sports Foundation raised an additional £60,000 for the charity.
