KERNOW Football Alliance have launched a crowdfunding bid to help them reach the CONIFA World Football Cup this summer.

The Cornish representative football team are aiming to raise £9,200 to help get them to Skopje, North Macedonia for the tournament, which takes place between Saturday, May 30 and Sunday, June 7.

The tournament is the flagship competition of CONIFA, the international governing body for association football teams that are not affiliated with FIFA.

Kernow will play six games during the tournament; three group games against South American side Mapuche, African team Matabeleland and the Australian First Nations team from Oceania, before three further placement matches.

As Kernow FA are run by volunteers and is a not-for-profit organisation, the team are aiming to raise £9,200 through a Crowdfunder campaign in order to get the squad and staff to the tournament.

Those who donate can, in return, be part of and named under the exclusive supporters club headers on the team's website.

A donation of up to £10 will get you in the Cornish Tin Supporters Club, while a donation of more than £100 will get you in the Cornish Lifetime Supporters Club, with copper, silver and gold clubs in between.

Kernow FA became one of CONIFA's member nations in November 2018, and played their first-ever match in February of last year, a 3-2 win against a Foxhole Stars XI.

A 5-0 win over Barawa at Bodmin's Priory Park in their first official international match followed in May, before a 10-3 hammering of Chagos Islands at the same ground in a World Football Cup qualifier in August.

Kernow FA will announce their squad for this summer's tournament on March 1.
