This tournament is a fundraiser for the less fortunate kids as well as adults in the 3rd world countries and all the proceeds will go towards the operating costs and the general running of these CC programs.
This past year, the Charity Cup team had a tremendous year, making thousands of people in many countries receiving hope trough Jesus Christ.
We are very excited about our 4th annual CHARITY CUP and we hope that everyone involved enjoys it and finds it to be a fun, competitive, positive and valuable experience. Here in Dallas, Texas, we have people that have grown up in the Charity Cup programs and we recognize the importance of those programs in development of our future young leaders & missionaries of tomorrow.
Our hope is that this tournament will provide an environment for the church members to play in a competitive atmosphere with an emphasis on life skill development.

Make this a yearly event for your church fellowship.

The defensive minded midfielder amassed a total of 395 first class appearances for Manchester United and he appeared in his final match streamfodboldlive.dk for the Old Trafford club in a high scoring and thrilling 4–3 triumph against longtime crosstown adversaries Manchester City at Maine Road on the 5th of May 1971. Manchester United were three up at the half time break courtesy of goals from George Best, Bobby Charlton and Denis Law respectively. Then during the second period, Freddy Hill, Francis Lee and Ian Mellor produced one apiece for The Light Blues, while the one and only George Best netted the winning goal for The Manchester Reds.
Ebullient and strong, Paddy Crerand was a dynamic force in the middle of the park for Manchester United in his time at Old Trafford and the long serving stalwart won the English Football League Championship in both 1964–65 and 1966–67, the FA Cup in 1963 as well as the coveted UEFA European Cup in May 1968. The Glaswegian accumulated 304 English Football League appearances for Manchester United between 1963 and 1971 and was promoted to assistant manager under his fellow countryman Tommy Docherty in December 1972 before he ultimately left The Red Devils to take the managerial helm at Division Three club Northampton Town at the start of the 1976–77 season. Paddy Crerand also enjoyed a comparatively short spell with South African side Wits University Football Club in Bloemfontein in Johannesburg.
With both of his parents coming from the small town of Donegal in the Republic of Ireland, the Manchester United midfield administrator became increasingly involved in Irish nationalist politics over the years. A British Labour Party member, the eloquent and often outspoken footballer was also a very good friend of John Hume of the Social Democratic and Labour Party in Northern Ireland. In 1975, the no-nonsense Paddy Crerand went to a secret meeting in a safe house in the Bogside area of Derry in Northern Ireland where the Manchester United favourite would have secret talks with several top IRA members, including the legendary Martin McGuinness. Paddy Crerand: “The Protestant people in Northern Ireland were used and abused by the British Government. How could you have working class people living in poverty voting Tory? You looked at two working class people shooting each other and then you asked yourself how was that possible. It was divide and conquer, the British trait from the year dot.”
