Surrey Confirms Provisional Friendlies for May 2021

International Surrey Football is pleased to announce 2 friendlies have been provisionally arranged for May 2021 at Farnham Town FC and Merstham FC, which will kick off the Surrey men’s 6 fixture stong Summer plans.

Both fixtures remain subject to confirmation closer to the time, but are intended to include fan attendance with both online ticket sales and on the day tickets available, details of which will be announced at a later date. The game at Farnham Town will feature Surrey’s postponed charity match against a Hampshire XI side in aid of St Catherine’s Hospice and Crohn’s & Colitis UK, with money raised from the fixture being split 50/50 between the two charities and the match will stay sponsored by Farnborough based Milestone Transport Planning.

The second of the two fixtures announced today will see Surrey’s return to Merstham since our last game hosted at the east Surrey venue against the Chagos Islands. Exact details regarding opposition will be announced at a later date, and is intended to take place one week after the team’s charity game as Surrey prepares to host the Southern Frontier Cup soon after.

Details regarding the rescheduled Southern Frontier Cup, originally planned for May 2020, but now pushed back to 2021, are still being planned before any announcements can be made publicly. Additionally Surrey’s participation in the inaugural WUFA World Series is also being planned, with details being discussed but not in a position to be announced publicly.

Surrey’s women’s team that postponed its trial game amid the recent increase in COVID-19 cases in the UK, had also announced last week it’ll be planning to host its first home debut at Merstham FC in 2021, details of which remain in the early stages with no confirmation regarding potential opposition.

Surrey joins World Unity Football Alliance

International Surrey Football is pleased to announce a new stage in our journey as we join as founding members of the World Unity Football Alliance (WUFA), started by the NGO iAct, founders of the Darfur Football Association.

The World Unity Football Alliance is a collaborative effort between value-aligned teams with a mission to promote hope, opportunity, and universal human rights while celebrating the joy of bringing people together through the most beautiful of games: Football.

The WUFA’s united core values include empathy, compassion, equity, honesty, and respect for universal human rights. The WUFA will work equitably together on projects, campaigns, and events that elevate the Alliance‚Äôs mission and values, and those of each of our teams.

We feel this move will benefit both our men and women’s teams and will provide the teams with new opportunities, as well as providing a means to support football and communities outside the UK.

As well as Surrey and Darfur, WUFA members also include the Chagos Islands, Matabeleland, Parishes of Jersey, Karen, Tamil Eelam and Barawa.
