The week of September 10 to September 17 saw Tottenham Hotspur Community supporting London's Week of Peace “ a celebration of diversity, justice, equality and respect across the capital.

The unique, annual event provided an opportunity for Londoners to promote initiatives and values that have a positive impact upon peace and safety, with the goal of developing a more cohesive society for people of all ages across boroughs in London.

As part of the event, the Club organized the Peace Week Football Tournament, which saw 16 teams competing. The tournament was a great success and managed to help promote the overall message of the week by promoting fair play, respect and peace through football.

The Club would like to offer their congratulations to local side, Supreme, who were the winners of both the 14-16 year old and 16-25 year old categories. In addition, well done to Broadwater Farm, who took home the girls' trophy.

This year brought the festival's fifth anniversary, following the inaugural event in the London Borough of Haringey, in September 2001, launched by the Peace Alliance. Since then, the Week of Peace has helped to engage thousands of people from differing ages, races, faiths and cultural groups, seeing its attendance gain real momentum over the last few years. As a result, September 2004 saw the event develop into the London Week of Peace, with this year's celebrations providing further momentum to the cause.

All 33 boroughs across London were involved, and approximately 150 events took place during the week of action, which was endorsed by the Prime Minister, the Leader of the Opposition, the Home Secretary, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner and the Mayor of London.
