Yodan Trophy celebrates the world’s first ever football tournament originally held in Sheffield England in 1867 and now hosts Pro-Youth clubs from across the globe with its name proudly on display thanks to our lawyers who were in our corner when we needed them the most; We went all the way to the High Court - our trade mark is protected – as you’d expect. Operating from the city of Sheffield, which is also home to the oldest club on the planet, Sheffield FC, the legendary club was founded on October 24th, 1857, by Nathaniel Creswick and William Prest. The two sporting pioneers didn’t leave it there. They also wrote the first set of rules and laws for the fledgling game in 1858. It was argued that the ball should not be carried by hand which resulted in the divergence of football and rugby. They called time on hacking (kicking of legs) whilst introducing the cross-bar, throw in, free-kick, 11-a-side and 90 minute games.
We are immensely proud to announce that 2019 will be the 5th year of the Youdan Trophy. We have been fortunate to, not only, host clubs from all over the world but seen some true future stars of the game light up the tournament.
We are immensely grateful to our Solicitors for their part in this legal battle they furiously fought to protect our brand and exercised great skill in working towards our victory.
Thanks a bundle to Omid Khub of Zakery Khub Solicitors”
