The Fattah Cup is a FIFA Forward Inter-Madrassah Tournament delivered by Faith Associates in partnership with London FA & Middlesex FA and supported by England Football.

This inter-madrassah tournament was the first of its kind one-day tournament bringing Madrassah clubs together for a unique football tournament held in London on the 1st June 2024. Over 500 people were in attendance with 13 institutions competing across three tournaments which brought together a diverse range of children, parents, volunteers and administrators from across London. The FIFA Forward Project was successfully launched on the 16th April 2024 at the iconic ‘Home of Football’ Wembley Stadium in which 50 institutional leaders, teachers, coaches and volunteers from over 15 institutions across London and Middlesex attended.

As part of the Fattah Cup FIFA Forward Project was the unique ‘Mosque and Madrassah Leadership Development Event’ as part of the Football Association’s first National Volunteering Conference. This event was held at the Home of England football, St Georges Park on the 6th July 2024. This event was a leadership development event that was part of the follow up engagement focused on leaders of Mosques and Madrassahs to build on courses already undertaken as part of Fattah Cup and receive world class training sessions at St Georges Park. There was specific workshops that focused on administration, delivery and coaching. The plan was to undertake further learning and guidance from experts in order to better develop pathways and opportunities for children in their communities and be part of an active and developing network. The training delivered at St Georges park was of the highest standards, delivered by expert trainers helped provide skills, learning and network opportunities for leaders.

As well as inviting Mosques from the Fattah Cup FIFA Forward Project, Faith Associates also engaged with Mosques within our national network who are connected with our wider FA projects such as Wildcats. We have an active national network, and were pleased to invite Mosques outside of London and Middlesex to be involved and aspire them to develop football provisions within their institutions and communities.
