Book your place now for The Laurie Cunningham Tribute Dinner which is being supported by The Football Association, Kick it Out and The Professional Footballers Association. We will also be joined by members of Laurie’s family and his son Sergio.
Many players and friends of Laurie will join us to recall what a wonderful player he was for West Bromwich Albion and how he created history when he became the first black player to represent England in a Full International game against Wales in May 1979.
The Dinner is a key event in the final phase of our fundraising for the Celebration Statue which will be in recognition of the fight against racism in football that was led by Cyrille Regis, Brendon Batson and Laurie Cunningham in the early 1980’s.
When the statue is unveiled in West Bromwich Town Centre it will be the first major art tribute to a black person in England that is sited in a public location.
Over 5 million people will pass the statue each year and it will be a fitting tribute to the impact and contribution made by these three players in the fight against racism football.
