A borough will welcome a competition with a difference, the World Football Cup.

Coles Park Stadium in Tottenham – home to Haringey Borough FC – is hosting the CONIFA competition, made up of non-FIFA teams from all over the world. Five games will be played there from May 31 to June 3.

People are invited down to Coles Park for the special tournament; the first time it has ever been held in Haringey.

The man tasked with getting the stadium and 3G pitch ready is Haringey Borough men’s manager Tom Loizou, who doubles up as the club's groundsman.

He said: “I’m the Borough manager but I’m also the groundsman. So I’ll be brushing the pitch, checking the floodlights, cleaning the stands – even making sure we’ve got the burgers in.”

Tom has been Borough manager for nine years, and has helped them soar up the leagues. They’ve just been promoted again, and next season they’ll play in the Bostik Premier. But that doesn’t stop him pitching in.

He said: “I brush the pitch twice a week, I do the weeding around the club grounds. After every game I sweep the terraces. I have to unblock the toilets, I put up the nets, I do all the maintenance and painting.

“The World Football Cup will be the first time the teams and players have come to Haringey Borough and this will put us on the map – I’ll also be keeping my eye out for some new players.”

“My personal mission is for everyone to know Haringey Borough. Three years ago no one wanted to play on our pitch or come through the gates. Aki (the chairrman) put his money where his mouth is and now we’re here. I’m a Gunner and he’s a Spurs fan, so we’re also proof that the two can live in harmony.
