The 7-a-side tournament is running at the Goodwin Sports Centre, Northumberland Road, Sheffield, from 11am to 5pm and Sheffield-based teams representing Afghanistan, Angola, Chile, Somalia and Iraq will be taking part. The winners will go on to compete in the Unity Cup national 7-a-side tournament in Manchester on the weekend of 2nd-3rd August.
