The annual Ragheed Ganni soccer tournament organised and hosted by the Irish College took place on Sunday, 30 October 2011.

In addition to the Irish College, the English, Scots and Beda Colleges also participated. The hosts were the eventual winners and the cup was presented by His Eminence Cardinal Seán Brady.

The tournament is named in memory of Fr Ragheed Ganni, who was a student at the Pontifical Irish College from 1996 to 2003.  Ragheed was a priest of the diocese of Mosul and he together with three companions was ambushed and murdered after Mass on 3 June 2007.
