Communities Union League (CUL) is an initiative and a brainchild of the Chairman Mr Mo Sardo. CUL helps the different national and international communities in the UK to coexist and build bridges of friendship between them through sports. CUL main purpose is to provide the different communities in the UK an avenue to compete together in different sports thus bringing communities closer to each other and facilitating cohesion and assimilation. We are starting with football as it is the one sport that unites people of all backgrounds and that they relate to in every corner of the globe.
Our purpose is to target to the youth specifically the under twenty years old to engage them in useful activities that will sway them away from crime and devious acts such as extremism and terrorism. The young athletes from the different communities in the UK aren’t just born - they’re selected, trained, moulded and tested through their participation in the communities teams. Since 2016, Communities Union League (CUL) has been gradually becoming a competitive force in the London area.
Our teams hone raw talent to maturity with quality coaching, primal workouts and a true love of the sport. Teamwork, perseverance, sportsmanship - those are the hallmarks of Communities Union League (CUL). Main London football clubs in the Championship league and other leagues have in CUL a pool of talent that they can scout talented players from and select for their own clubs
