In May 2018 WWSET delivered a fantastic football tournament for local mosque teams under the floodlights at Adams Park, the aim of which was to bring together young adults from various parts of the town in joint celebration of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. Attended by nearly 70 players representing mosques in the Wycombe area, with an estimated further 100+ watching from the stands, the tournament ran from midnight to 2.30am, and then concluded with a customary pre-dawn (Sehri) meal. It was clear from the hugely positive feedback received from the participants following the tournament that they didn’t feel there were sufficient social playing opportunities for Muslim players who live in and around High Wycombe, and that they would be keen on a more long-term provision being offered…Considering this, Wycombe Wanderers Sports & Education Trust, in partnership with the Berks & Bucks FA, are both delighted and excited to announce our inaugural Inter-Mosque League.
The 7-a-side football league is open to teams representing mosques in Buckinghamshire & Berkshire. Taking place over 22 weeks beginning in September 2018, the league will be complemented by a knock-out cup competition (with the winners progressing to the national FA Peoples Cup tournament), as well as an end-of-season league winners awards ceremony which will take place at Adams Park.
The Inter Mosque League will run up till December, with League winners being presented with trophies at a presentation evening at Adams Park for all the participants, teams and partners.
