Proudly East London tournament

Posted by on Aug 10, 2018 in Diary, Events News, Tours/Tournaments | 0 comments

We’ve been invited to Clapton Ultras ‘Proudly East London Tournament’ on the August bank holiday weekend. We had an amazing time last year, the Cowgirls won the women’s tournament and had a great time at the party afterwards. I would also highly recommend going to the Clapton game on the Saturday! By far the best experience you will ever get at a football match – if you thought the cowfolk could chant you ‘ain’t seen nothing compared to these guys! Details below…

 

Clapton Ultras would like to invite you to the fourth edition of Proudly East London, our annual football tournament celebrating all the reasons that bigots hate us. This edition will be held in Walthamstow, in line with our completely unplanned tradition of holding it in a different East London borough each year.

There will also be events across the weekend with some also being organised by Clapton CFC, the newly launched refreshed club that is fully members owned, who will be playing at the ground behind the five aside pitches next season. Their match on the Saturday is currently the first match they will be playing on this ground, against another historic team who were the first to ever lift the FA Cup, and who went on to lift it another four times, matching Clapton’s tally of five FA Cup wins in the Amateur competition.

The schedule and a lot of details are yet to be finalised, and there may be more to come, but right now it’s looking a little something like this:

Friday 24th August
20:00 – The History of Walter Tull, with Phil Vasili and maybe more

Saturday 25th August
15:00 – Clapton CFC v Wanderers

Sunday 26th August
12:00-17:30 – Proudly East London, 5-a-side Football Tournament
20:00 – Afterparty

In solidarity,
Clapton Ultras
