The tournament was organised by Islington Faiths Forum with support from the council's targeted youth support team, Access to Sports, Junctions Road's Absolute Print Ltd and more.

Jubba Youth Community Association supports unemployed young people through sport, offering them mentoring, employment and careers advice. Finsbury Park Mosque's B team won last year.

Roz Miller, organiser of the Peace Cup from Islington Faiths Forum, says "We couldn't do this each year without all the youth workers, the refs, our supporters and other volunteers who come on the day to help deliver this tournament. We are really grateful to all our funders and supporters. What the young men get from this event makes it all worthwhile."
