Football in the City : Uniting businesses through five-a-side
We’re searching for companies across the Northwest to join us in a series of quarterly corporate five-a-side
football tournaments throughout 2015.
Our aim is to unite the business community in a quarterly competitive football tournament which will enable
a team of football loving employees to enjoy a Friday afternoon of competitive football, networking and
socialising whilst raising funds for The Reclaim Project and Kidscan.
Kicking off at 3pm, your team of 7 will take part and compete in a competitive tournament with 11 other
Northwest based teams.
The tournaments will take place at Soccer in the City, state of the art five-a-side football pitches in the heart of
Castlefield on the outskirts of Manchester city centre. The first one will take place on Friday 27th March.
The remaining dates will be confirmed shortly but we’re hoping for the last Friday of quarters two and three
with the final and black tie dinner taking place in December 2015.
Representatives from every organisation taking part will be welcome to support their colleagues and take
advantage of some structured networking opportunities during the competition and afterwards over drinks,
food and prize giving.
Each event will be promoted through local business networks and maximised across social media platforms.
There will be plenty of publicity and branding opportunities for every company taking part.
Support a Local Charity
There is a cost of £350 per team per tournament. Included in the price will be trophies, food and sports drinks
for the 7-strong football team.
There will be a special discount for signing up for all 4 tournaments of 2015 including 7 shirts branded with
your company logo.
One of the charities we are supporting is the Reclaim Project, the Northwest based youth project that provides
a network of caring adults to support young people from deprived communities. The charity empowers them
to create new career and life opportunities for themselves through creating new skills and encouraging
The other charity is Kidscan – a North West based Children’s Cancer Research charity. Every year in the UK
around 1,600 children are diagnosed with cancer. Sadly, one in five won’t survive, and those who do will face
a lifetime of side effects to the treatment they receive. Through ground-breaking research, Kidscan is working
towards a world where every child diagnosed with cancer will survive and thrive. www.kidscan.org.uk
