Through the Youdan Trophy we celebrate the oldest football tournament in the world!
The Football Challenge Cup was both sponsored and presented by Thomas Youdan Esq. back in 1867. The competition pre-dates the FA Cup by a full four years and though, only played once, it is without doubt the forbearer of all modern cup tournament football that followed. Today, our aim is to promote the well-being of young people through sporting competition, cultural & heritage appreciation and education, in addition to providing marque teams and talented up-and-coming players with the opportunity to forge long lasting friendships and memories across many nationalities and cultures.
