Fans For Diversity to support Panjab v Jersey at Kidderminster
The Fans For Diversity campaign will be supporting Panjab FA’s international fixture against Jersey this Sunday (24 April) at Aggborough Stadium, the home of Kidderminster Harriers.
Panjab and Jersey are teams associated with the Confederation of Independent Football Associations (ConIFA), with Panjab hosting the fixture ahead of taking part in the ConIFA World Cup, taking place in Abkhazia later this year.
Harpreet Singh, Chairman of the Panjab FA, is thrilled to be playing this match with the support of Fans For Diversity and Kidderminster Harriers.
“This is a very proud and emotional moment for myself.
“Since the inception of Panjab FA, I made it my personal mission to provide an alternative platform at the international level with exposure in front of football industry leaders for the talents of the community to demonstrate their football capabilities, with a clear objective to progress the careers of all involved.
“The upcoming game against Jersey FA, headed by the respected Brian Little, is a landmark moment for Panjab FA. The opportunity for the footballing talents of Panjabi community to represent the history and heritage of Panjab, is a privilege in any capacity.
“This fixture could not have been possible without the support and influence of Colin Gordon and Kelly Perks-Bevington at Kidderminster. They have been instrumental and it is a privilege to be working with them.”
Anwar Uddin, who coaches Toch Singh at Sporting Bengal, one of the players representing Punjab, was delighted to be supporting the fixture through Fans For Diversity.
“It promises to be a magnificent occasion for both Panjab and Jersey.
“The game is about reflecting communities within football that are not usually recognised, so it is important that Fans For Diversity is there to show its support.
“We want to make football accessible to all, regardless of background, and hopefully this match will encourage the community surrounding Kidderminster to not only watch this game, but to come back to watch some Harriers games as well.”
