Football for Srebrenica
Friday 28 April 2017By ESFA Office
Join the 8372 Tournament to commemorate the 22nd anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide.
The 8-3-7-2 football tournament will unite young people across Britain playing football in memory of the 8372 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 22nd anniversary year of Srebrenica.
Supported by Asmir Begovic, the FA, Kick it Out and the ESFA, we invite schools and youth groups to participate by holding a football match or tournament on Wednesday 12thJuly to join thousands of others across the UK standing up to hatred and intolerance. All participating groups will receive free resources including the 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 cantailor the event to your requirements.
We hope your school will join this powerful opportunity for young people to come together through sport to consider the possible outcomes of racism, intolerance and division.
