Leicester City of Sanctuary


Leicester City of Sanctuary football project is an initiative that helps asylum seekers practice sport. They run football sessions at local sport venues every Saturday morning from 10:00 until 11:30. This project has the full support and collaboration of Leicester City Football Club that provides two youth coaches to deliver skills training sessions and organise games.

Football tournaments are being planned for the future, however the project continues to involve refugees and asylum seekers in playing friendly games around the city.
