Tigers Travelling to Lyon +

22nd June 2016

The Tigers Trust are taking part in a unique festival of Football in Lyon, France during the Euro 2016 finals this summer.

Four young people from Hull and the East Riding and staff from the Tigers Trust will travel to France to take part in the Street Football World 16 Festival, an official event of the UEFA EURO 2016. Fern Lazenby, Jess Burton, Scott Lofas and Ben Matos–Gois will take part in football competitions, cultural exchange workshops and sightseeing trips to the city of Lyon.

The Street Football World Festival 16 will be one of the biggest Football for Good events ever organised, bringing together approximately 80 delegations from up to 50 countries. The festival will unite more than 500 people from all around the world including 320 players, 80 coordinators, 80 young leaders, 100 volunteers and 50 members of the organising team.

 

The Tigers Sport and Education Trust was founded in 1990.  Directed by a Board of Trustees and governed by the league in which Hull City Tigers is currently playing, the priority is a high standards of organisation and delivery within the sports development and education sector.

Sport is a proven method of tackling a wide range of issues e.g. health, unemployment and crime. The high profile association with a professional football club confirms that the Trust have an important role to play within our community.

 

Matt Conway, Programme Manager at the Tigers Trust and delegation Lead for the trip said  

“This will be the first time the Tigers Trust has been involved in a festival of this kind and I am expecting it will be an experience not to be missed.  Fun, vibrant and professionally organised.  A wonderful opportunity to network and mix with a wide range of people from such a variety and diverse background.  I am also hoping that the young delegates have an experience of a lifetime and something that will lead to potential partnerships for the Trust in the future.

 We are contributing to the cost of the festival by fundraising activity and we have also applied to our own discretionary fund to help with the costs.  Our fund is called the ROAR! Support fund and is our fundraising support from sponsorship and corporate investment.”

 

Peyton Shaw who is representing the Trust as a Young Ambassador and is currently a sports coach apprentice at the Trust will work alongside other young ambassadors from all over the world to ensure the festival is a success for all attending.

 

One of the players, Fern Lazenby, is a student from St. Marys College and commented “From the festival, I hope to interact with people from other countries and experience different cultures.  I am also hoping to see how both boys and girls play and compete together as well as experiencing the game from a different perspective. I am hoping to pass my knowledge of the game onto others and receive new ideas from others.”

 

It will certainly be an experience not to be missed.
