Beacon hosts World Cup tournament

The Beacon of Light welcomed more than 200 young footballers for a special tournament to celebrate the diversity of the World Cup.

Hosted by Sunderland AFC’s official charity, Foundation of Light, the Premier League Primary Stars World Cup Tournament saw 23 primary school teams take to the Beacon’s 3G and 4G pitches to show off their skills.

In a special draw broadcast live on the Foundation’s Facebook page, each school was randomly allocated a country competing at this summer’s extravaganza and tasked to design a flag representing that nation.

During an action-packed afternoon of football, the youngsters were given a “once in a lifetime experience” when the Premier League trophy was unveiled as part of its tour around the country.

We’ve had a great time and won a lot of games. We’ve loved playing at the Beacon of Light!

Howletch Lane Primary School, who represented England

Teacher, Debbie Sturge, added: “The tournament has been excellent and the kids have really enjoyed it.

“At events such as this the children are able to meet new people and others who they play with at the weekends. It’s nice to get them all together.

“The Beacon of Light is amazing, it’s the first time we’ve been and thoroughly enjoyed it. The partnership with the Foundation has definitely benefitted our students.”

Thomas, from Easington Colliery Primary (Belgium), said: “I’ve had a lot of fun, I’ve really enjoyed playing at the Beacon.

“I had my photo taken with the Premier League trophy which was amazing because I support Manchester City!”

Following the group stages the teams were placed into Gold, Silver and Bronze Play-Offs with Easington Colliery (France), Barnes Juniors (Egypt) and Ribbon Academy (Denmark) winning each section and the title of ‘Primary Stars World Champions’.

David Dowson, Foundation of Light’s School Sports Coordinator, added: “Today has been brilliant. We’ve had 23 teams here at the Beacon, playing football in the right way – helping and supporting each other.

“The reaction we’ve had to the Beacon has been fantastic; it’s the first time many of the teachers and pupils have visited and they’re overwhelmed at the facilities.

“To top it off we’ve had the Premier League trophy and the kids have been able to have their photograph taken with that that. It’s another bonus of the day to motivate and inspire them.”

Premier League Primary Stars uses the appeal of the Premier League and professional football clubs to inspire children to learn, be active and develop important life skills.
