Some of the sport’s biggest club to send under-10s teams to compete in event

The National League season may be over for Bromley, but football fans in the area can still look forward to watching matches at Hayes Lane this summer.

From June 9-10, the Ravens’ home will host the inaugural International London Cup, which has attracted some high profile clubs.

The competition is open to under-10 teams and Premier League clubs Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Crystal Palace, West Ham United, Everton and Swansea City will all be sending squads to compete, as will Championship side Fulham.

Representative squads from European heavyweights Paris Saint-Germain, AC Milan, Porto, Ajax, Olympique Lyonnais, Ajax, PSV Eindhoven, Club Brugge and Genk will also be present.

As well as playing host to the under-10 teams from some of the best clubs in the world, the tournament will also welcome grassroots sides.

Teams from as close as inner-city London to as far away as Bristol, Sheffield and the Republic of Ireland will also be taking part in the competition.

Former football agent Eric Hall, whose roster of previous clients include Leon Cort, Robbie Savage, Tim Sherwood, John Scales, Neil Ruddock, Terry Venables, Paul Walsh and Dennis Wise, is a big supporter of the event.

And Hall believes that anyone coming along to watch the event may well see a potential star of the future in action.

“We will no doubt be seeing at least one Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo in the making at this year’s tournament,” said Hall.

Tickets for this year’s inaugural International London Cup are priced at £5 for one day or £7.50 for both days of competition.

Family tickets are also on offer, with group admission for two adults and two children price at £15, while children under the age of five go free.

In addition to the action on the pitch, there will also be food, bars and refreshment on site at Hayes Lane for those in attendance.
