Punjab United Sports est. 1966
Creating an opportunity for youth
Punjab United Sports Wolverhampton are arguably the oldest registered Punjabi football club in Europe and in 2016 we celebrated our 50th Anniversary. We are a club founded on Punjabi roots and are proud that our heritage is still a core part of the club today.
2016 was a momentous year in the Club’s history, with the First Team ending its long drought in KFF Tournament victories by winning B Section in Barking and A Section in Derby.
In the youth teams, the Under 13s won their whole section across the five tournaments, with one of the two teams competing reaching each of the five finals. The Under 13s were also runners up in the First Division during the league season and cup runners up last season in the Bilston Youth Partnership Football League.
We have continued our recent tradition of developing youth football in the local area and currently boast teams from Under 11s to Under 17s.
This year we will be marking our anniversary with a celebration at The Venue in Dudley Town Centre on Saturday 25 March from 7pm.
We will be commemorating the last 50 years of the club’s history with veterans and current members, parents, players and coaches alike as we celebrate the unique impact the club has had on the wider community.
I would personally like to place on record my thanks to all current and former players, sponsors both past and present and all benefactors such as Guru Tegh Bahadur Gurdwara, Wolverhampton, Bilston College and local community leaders and politicians. Also I would like to thank the parents and family members who give up their time each weekend to support their children and relatives in making Punjab United the club it is today.
The 50th Anniversary Celebration is our chance to say thank you to all of the people who have made the club what it is today and also to ensure we secure the future of the Punjab United family for many years to come.
There will be live entertainment on the evening as well as a charity auction and trophy presentation. I hope to see as many Punjab United members as possible and I would like to say it is a massive privilege to be Chairman of such a fantastic organisation.
Please contact the managers of all teams or members of the committee for more information on how to get tickets to the 50th Anniversary Celebration.
Finally I’d like to thank Tersaim ‘Terry’ Singh Kandola for his vision in setting up the club and I hope we are living up to the ideals and values he set for this great club.
