Chef Paul Foster and charity Farm Africa are invite teams across the UK food and hospitality industry to compete for the Chefs’ Football trophy at two charity football tournaments this summer.

The five-a-side friendly football fundraising matches will take place in Birmingham, at GOALS, Star City, on Sunday 11 June and in London, at PowerLeague, Shoreditch, on Sunday 30 July.

Both tournaments allow up to 10 players per team, at an entry fee of £250 for Birmingham or £300 for London with money raised going to support farmers across eastern Africa.

“After the success of last year’s tournament, I’m so excited that we are doing not one but two this year. Hitting Birmingham and London means we can offer spaces to so many more teams and in turn raise more funds and awareness about Farm Africa’s great work,” says Foster.

“After our first event in 2013, we have grown every year. Now 10 years later, this will be our biggest year yet, hoping to raise up to £15,000.”

Farm Africa works to reduce poverty by helping farmers in eastern Africa to grow their incomes in an environmentally sustainable way. The charity helps farmers to not only boost yields, but also gain access to markets, while protecting the environment for generations to come.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for the food and hospitality industry to network and have some fun while making a difference to farmers’ lives in eastern Africa,” says Steph Armstrong, Farm Africa events & partnerships officer. “Early team applications are encouraged.”
