Just one… you dirty minded minx. Jokes aside the London Titans FC are celebrating their 10th anniversary this weekend.
Much attention has been focused on gay footballers in recent months with 3 high profile players coming out as gay in just a few years – and two more Premier League players, it has been reported, are ready to come out of the closet.
Saturday will see the 11-a-side tournament take place from 10:00 – 16:00 on pitches 1 – 4 at Wandsworth Common, with spectators asked to arrive from 10:00 onwards. Saturday evening will see the award ceremony held at the Two Brewers followed by drinks and the Rugby World Cup final, before players head to XXL for a special night of birthday celebrations and Halloween excess.
Phil Steer, comments:
“As a club we’re really proud to provide an accepting and competitive space for players to experience the game regardless of their sexuality. Over the last 10 years we’ve come a long way and it’s great t see the community that has grown around a love of the game free from the homophobia you may find elsewhere. We’re excited for the Birthday Tournament as it’s a way to celebrate this journey, and we hope that the community will come out and support the players this Saturday.”
