TEAM Zimbabwe UK, a sporting organisation of Zimbabweans based in the England, will celebrate achievements of the last decade at a special function at the Waltham Abbey Marriot Hotel in London on Saturday.
Since the establishment of the Zimbabwe Diaspora Development National football teams, Team Zimbabwe-UK has won five major honours in the last five years in Non-League Football.
Team Zimbabwe-UK won the African Nations Cup UK (Seniors Cup) in 2019 as well as the Inner City (Vets Cup).
The team also won The Inner City World Cup (Vets Cup) in 2018, a year after clinching the 2017 African Nations Cup UK (Under 17 tournament).
“This event has been organised for the specific purpose of recognising, championing and appreciating all of our collective efforts and achievements by the organisation in the past decade,” Marshal Gore, Team Zimbabwe-UK chief executive officer, said.
“As a community organisation one of our main objectives, besides promoting sport development, is to ensure that we support many young Zimbabweans to achieve their desired purpose in life without prejudice. This we believe we have achieved thus far.
“As a community organisation, we strongly value and cherish the above outstanding achievements. They’ve had a huge impact in our community development, delivering purposeful social integration, unity and successful community cohesion which has helped to promote Brand Zimbabwe in the UK.
“We, therefore, believe that this success is worth celebrating during this special year, which marks the 40th Anniversary of our country since independence.
“We hope that by sharing our success story we will be able to inspire and bring together more Zimbabweans in the Diaspora and at home to walk together and work together in success,” said Gore in a statement released Thursday.
