The Cohesion Cup – Bedford - 2 Touch Rulz™ Tournament

Sunday 5th July 2015 (1-4pm) at AFC Kempston Rovers

Bedford based charity BACF (The Bedford African & Caribbean Forum) announces the inaugural Community Cohesion Cup will be held on Sunday 5th July 2015 (1-4pm) at AFC Kempston Rovers’ Football Grounds in Kempston.

The Community Cohesion Cup is a 5-aside football tournament based on the 2TouchRulz™ (2TR) football approach that is being co-hosted by BACF and Bedfordshire Police to promote community cohesion through the power of football.

Featuring teams from Bedfordshire Police and the Bedford & surrounding areas communities, the tournament is supported by BACF, Bedfordshire Police, 2TouchRulz, Kick it Out, the Bedfordshire FA and Sport England.

The 2TR football game, hugely popular in London where it started in 2007, has been designed from the ground up to develop young players of all abilities and embraces and leverages team work, communication and work rate. Carl Perri, Community Cohesion and Crime Reduction Officer with Bedfordshire Police, said “The 2TR community cohesion programme is about more than just football. It uses scenarios young people face in real life to help develop positive behaviour and empower everybody who takes part. I am delighted that Bedfordshire Police are working with our communities to help launch 2TR in Bedford with the Community Cohesion Cup.”

The Bedford Community Cohesion Cup will be held on Sunday 5th July (1-4pm) at AFC Kempston Rovers’ ground in Kempston. If you are over 18 and would like to play for one of the community teams, Please contact BACF on the number/s listed in this correspondence
