About this site


The National Christian Football Festival is for Church based teams and annually attracts 30+ sides from all over the country.  It is usually held at the quality pitches and facilities of Manchester University.

Churches football teams from Sunderland, Essex, Loughborough, West Midlands and Surrey  come together for a feast of football! Two days of plenty of matches and banter.

The tournament is 11-a-side and played on grass and is for players aged 16 and above.

There are two categories, one for new teams and the other for teams that play regularly.

In 2004 Genesis Loughborough won the main section just piping Heworth Christian Fellowship from Gateshead. Westcliff Baptist Church from Essex won the new teams section. Molesey Community Church won the Fair play trophy voted for by the opposition and referees

The 2005 Tournament was won on penalties by Ambassadors in Sport Bolton, just beating Cheam Baptist Church from Surrey.

The 2007 competition was washed out/. It was that weekend where Tewksbury was flooded in that wet summer of 2007. An indoor 5-a-side comp was quickly arranged and won by Glenwood from Wales.

Details of the next competition can be obtained by contacting the organisers Ambassadors in Sport in Bolton on 01204 363606
