In an outstanding display of sportsmanship, Lancaster University hosted the first LMC Cup football tournament, bringing together members of the Muslim community to raise funds for orphans.
In the event, held on Sunday, Sultan FC emerged as the deserving champions, lifting the first trophy.
“We are absolutely thrilled to have won the inaugural LMC tournament,” Sultan FC captain Sufyaan Munshi told Lancaster Guardian.
“A big thank you to all the participants, without them, we wouldn’t have had this outstanding opportunity. It was played in the right spirit, and true sportsmanship was shown by all the teams.”
Apart from football excitement, the tournament’s success went beyond the football pitch, serving as a platform for the Muslim community in Lancaster and beyond to come together and make a positive impact.
The tournament saw the launch of a fundraising campaign to support orphans worldwide, resulting in raising £5,950.
“The funds raised will be dedicated to supporting 16 orphans for the coming 12 months, providing them with essential resources, education, and a brighter future,” Imtiaz Khoda, the main organizer of the tournament, said.
The event serves as an inspiration for future initiatives that aim to bring communities together through sports while supporting those in need.
Sports have a remarkable ability to bring people together, transcending boundaries of age, background, and culture.
Last month, Oldham mosque hosted a charity football tournament, raising more than £10,000.
The tournament, held on August 20 by Bilal Jamia Masjid, had an estimated turnout of more than 2,000 people.
