It is with great pleasure and pride that we are pleased to announce our return to the IMC, a football tournament which is focussed on supporting War Child. We will compete alongside a suitable assortment of teams from across the world of independent music in a knockout tournament on Saturday the 27th of July later this year. It will be the third time that we have participated in the event.
