Abdal Ahmed, Football Development Manager at Osmani Trust, said: "The THCC started off as being a small tournament for the residents of the borough back in 2005, it is now a household name for many teams across the UK.
"I feel it is a great opportunity for us to show that Tower Hamlets is a multi-cultural borough and a great place to live and work.
"Osmani Trust is at the forefront in delivering community cohesion projects in Tower Hamlets."
Ashik Maih, manager of Shadwell BBK, added: "The tournament was extremely well organised compared to others we have played in the past, there was also a great friendly atmosphere throughout the whole day which was good to see with so many young people from all over London."
