Inter Madrassah Organisation (IMO) is proud to announce the details of our Annual Football Tournament, with a special theme this year of “Rovers Stars”. This initiative will give a much needed boost to the younger participation at all levels of the game.
The IMO Annual Football Tournament will be held at Blackburn Rovers’ Senior Training Centre on Saturday 30th June 2018, and we invite entries from your club, madrassah, school, academy or team at any age group from Year 2 primary school to Year 8 secondary school.
The special themed event, which is making its debut this year, is being fully supported by our local football club Blackburn Rovers who have just secured promotion into the championship.
Blackburn Rovers’ CEO Steve Waggot said “Blackburn Rovers are delighted to be hosting the IMO for the second year running on the 30th June at our Senior Training Centre at Brockhall. Last year was a resounding success with over 600 players from 60 clubs across the North West participating in a wonderful community day in our first class professional facilities at Brockhall.
We are always looking at ways of improving the experience by adding additional aspects with our partners and at this year’s event at the end of June we will have some of the club Scouts attending to assess the standard of the players with the best performers being given the opportunity to train with our Academy for a couple of days. We look forward to welcoming all players and their clubs in what should be another very successful tournament for all concerned.”
Alongside the tournament, Blackburn Rovers Community Trust will be holding various coaching sessions and activities on the outdoor pitches which will be open to all to take part in. It will be fun, engaging and rewarding, players who excel on the day will be offered a 2-day placement at Blackburn Rovers’ Senior Training Centre, this will be open to boys and girls.
IMO Chair Dr Qamar Khan said “IMO is grateful to Blackburn Rovers and the Community Trust for making their superb playing facilities available and supporting the whole community in this way, this is an excellent opportunity for our young players to shine and their families to have a great day out and for everyone involved to enjoy themselves”.
