One more year, the Guardiola Sala Foundation supported the Partnership Trophy, the annual football tournament run by The Salvation Army for people who are homeless including refugees. The Guardiola Sala Foundation arranged the visit of Manchester United’s manager, Erik Ten Hag, and also donated the official balls of the tournament (Puma) and items for the players.
Erik ten Hag attended the five-a-side Partnership Trophy tournament held at Goals in Manchester with another football legend, former manager and England captain Terry Butcher. The Guardiola Sala Foundation was represented by two of its patrons, Pere Guardiola and his wife Laura Guerra. The tournament brought together over 20 teams from Salvation Army services across the UK.
“The organisation does great work in supporting homeless people to rebuild their lives.
Homelessness is a difficult problem in our city and anything I can do to raise awareness by coming to events like this is important”, Eric ten Hag said. Terry Butcher added: “This tournament is a great way of bringing good sportsmanship and good behaviour and the most important thing for everyone was to enjoy it. The challenges that all of the players have overcome is testament to their hard work and commitment to being the best that they can be”.
