Kicking goals & serving smiles: Amigos Burgers & Shakes hosts the first ever Amigos cup

Amigos Burgers and Shakes has elevated its community involvement, transforming a beloved dining experience into an inspiring community event.
This past Sunday, the popular restaurant proudly sponsored and organized their first Amigos Cup in partnership with the Elite London Academy (ELA), demonstrating its commitment to supporting young talent and fostering a love for football. Held at the Alec Reed Academy on June 2nd, the atmosphere was electric as seven teams of 10 young players each took to the field.
The Amigos Football Cup wasn’t just about winning; it was about providing young football enthusiasts from diverse and often challenging backgrounds with a platform to showcase their skills and passion for the sport.
Owners Waqas ‘Wax’ Siddique and Kasim ‘Kaz’ Akhter were on hand to present the trophies, joined by musician Flintz, who added a touch of star power to the proceedings. The joy on the kids’ faces as they received their awards highlighted the event’s success and the positive impact of uniting the community through sport.
Following the thrilling matches, the young athletes and their families indulged in a well-deserved feast of Amigos’ famously delicious burgers. This post-tournament treat was more than just a meal; it was a celebration of the participants’ hard work, dedication, and love for football.
A spokesperson from Amigos said: “We couldn’t be happier with how the first-ever Amigos Cup went,” said a spokesperson from Amigos. “We’re incredibly proud of all the teams that took part. By giving these kids a chance to shine, we hope to inspire them and provide opportunities that might otherwise be out of reach. This cup was dedicated to celebrating their hard work, dedication, and love for football.”
Looking ahead, Amigos is already planning for the future. “We can confirm that we will be hosting the Amigos London Cup in the future, with invitations extended to teams from all across London,” the spokesperson added.
Amigos Burgers and Shakes is not just about serving great food; it is about making a difference.
