London Tigers is an award winning innovative community, sports and youth organisation working across a number of London boroughs. The organisation provides sporting and lifelong learning opportunities for hard to reach individuals and groups who have been disadvantaged through social, cultural, racial or economic reasons and view sport and recreation as a tool to engage these marginalised and vulnerable groups.

On Wednesday 8th December 2010, London Tigers held its biggest event of the year – the Annual Achievement Awards Ceremony 2010 - at the grand Porchester Hall, Bayswater. The Award Ceremony, hosted by Sulthana Begum, saw over 500 people come together from all across London to encourage and recognise the positive contributions made by tghe organisa- tion and its members.

The evening started off with an opening speech from Mesba Ahmed, chief exec- utive of London Tigers, and included two videos that gave a glimpse of the wide range of activities and achieve- ments of the Tigers, a rap performance from London Tigers member Mo Money and finished off with an ener- gising dance act from young people at Strangers Dance Academy featuring one of London Tiger’s top Asian foot- ballers Tazmul Ahmed.

It first started out in 1986 as Marylebone Football Club, in the bor- ough of Westminster, and was run by a small group of dedicated Bangladeshi individuals with the aim of providing Bangladeshi youngsters in the area an opportunity to play organised football. In 1997, the club was formally organ- ised as an organisation and in 2003 as a registered charity. In the last 5 years, seeing the needs of other ethnic com- munities in the area, activities have been opened up to other communities to encourage them to participate and get involved in the organisation

Today, the organisation has over 1000 members from more than 60 national- ities and delivers a wide range of proj- ects in the areas of sports, youth work, health, education, employment, and training across London. London Tigers is currently working in six London bor- oughs including Westminster, Brent, Camden, Ealing, Tower Hamlets and Redbridge.
