Back Onside Confirmed as Official Charity Partner

The Newcastle International Summer Cup is delighted to confirm Back Onside as the tournament’s Official Charity Partner for 2021.

Back Onside is a registered charity which works with individuals and teams across the United Kingdom to support mental illness through the benefits of sporting activity and exercise.

Back Onside is committed to helping young people and adults who face mental health challenges due to social exclusion, disability or challenging life circumstances.

By delivering programmes and workshops; focused around sport, music, drama and art, Back Onside supports and relieves mental health obstacles through peer-support and participation in activities that encourage good health and well-being.

As part of the partnership, Back Onside will support the Newcastle International Summer Cup’s Goal of the Tournament competition, which will encourage parents and coaches to submit their best goal footage throughout the weekend with a chance to be included in the social media vote after the conclusion of the tournament.

We are delighted to be working with Back Onside to raise awareness of the effects of mental illness in young people during the Newcastle International Summer Cup weekend, where teams from across the north-east England and Scotland will come together for two days of football action.

A huge thank you to the Back Onside team for their continued excellent work and we look forward to supporting them during the tournament and into the future.
