About the event

Like last year, the football tournament will be for Company employees only (no contractors or ringers). To take part you will need:

  • a team of 7 (maximum – 5 players minimum)
  • to think of a team name
  • and nominate one person to be the team captain

Bibs are provided, but you will need to bring your own kit – see the Registration Pack for full details.

The format will be Champions League style – group matches then knockout. Each game will last 10 minutes.

Teams that finish top in group stages automatically qualify for the knockout stages. They will be joined by the best 3 runners-up.

Cereal bars, fruit and energy drinks will be available on arrival and after the tournament you can choose from the cold buffet or enjoy a pizza. NB no alcohol is allowed during the tournament itself, though you can have a drink at the sports bar once you’ve completed all your games. Celebratory jugs of beer will be provided after matches have been completed.
