The Football 7 Association of Trinidad and Tobago and Miscellaneous are partnering with the Inter-Agency Task Force for its 2016 Football tournament which was launched on Saturday July 16th, 2016 at the St Paul Street Multi-Purpose Complex  in Port of Spain.

The tournament, titled the “Hearts and Minds” Football Tournament is geared towards providing long term benefits in the social development of young people and immediate, positive outcomes. Gang activities have decreased and barriers have been broken down.


This initiative was established to help curb the high level of crime within the various communities and to assist the young people to cope with life’s challenges and to channel their energies into a positive and healthy lifestyle. Our intention is to enhance the abilities within our youths in the areas of sports and physical activities and to remove borderlines within our area of operation.
