29 May 2017|Tottenham Hotspur
Ledley King was a special guest as the UK’s Nepalese community came together for the 15th annual Gurkha Cup, held at the Queen’s Avenue Military Garrison in Aldershot, Hampshire, on Sunday.
Our legendary former captain took part in a two-hour signing session for the thousands in attendance before presenting trophies to winning teams alongside Dr Durga Bahadur Subedi, Nepal’s Ambassador to the UK.
Football enthusiasts young and old flocked to the Spurs zone on the day, where you could test your skills alongside our Global Coaching team, purchase merchandise and enter a competition to win tickets to a match next season – as well as meet Chirpy and Lily.
The Gurkha Cup is one of the biggest events organised by a Nepalese/Gurkha community in United Kingdom, with around 50 teams participating in a nine-a-side tournament.
It also provides a day out for all the family celebrating all things Nepalese, with a parachute display, a Gurkha Band, cultural dance and Tai-Kwon-do display and much more.
All money raised from entry to the tournament is donated to charities including the Gurkha Welfare Trust and Help for Heroes.
The Club has a growing fan base in Nepal, with an official Supporters’ Club established in Kathmandu and a large following within our Armed Forces Spurs Supporters’ Club from the Queen’s Gurkha Regiment.
