FC Not Alone x CALM World Cup 2018

Words by Ian McKenzie back in 2018 just after we had completed the first FC Not Alone x CALM tournament. As you can see there was a lot of excitement…

This day couldn’t have been any more perfect. The real world cup was in full flow so on June 16th 2018, Matthew and I hosted the first ever FC Not Alone tournament raising money and awareness for the mental health and suicide prevention charity CALM.

Leading up to the event I (Ian) was extremely nervous and Matthew was pretty calm and collected. It was by far the biggest event I had ever organised and it was class! Props to Callum Knowles (https://www.instagram.com/iamknowlesieboy/) who was our photographer on the day. Here are some of Matthew and I’s favourite shots of the day. We also had to include the photo of Matthew meeting CALM CEO Simon Gunning before the event and Matthew being on the BBC news after the event. FABULOUS. For all tournament photos you can go to Callum’s album here.
