Forever Manchester Football 7s Tournament Is Back

January 16, 2017

The Forever Manchester 7s Charity Football Tournament will take place on Friday 31st March on the 3G Community Pitch at FC United of Manchester’s ground in Moston, North Manchester.

The 7-a-side charity football tournament will see 15 teams competing against each other in the format of three leagues of five teams, followed by semi-finals and final. The tournament is open for male, female and mixed teams (minimum age of 16). Each team must have a squad of a minimum of seven players, however companies or groups can enter more than one team.

 

We’re inviting you to enter a team (or teams) and take part in an enjoyable yet competitive tournament whilst raising money for local community projects. The tournament provides businesses with the opportunity for staff to come together as a team as well as meeting, and networking, with other local businesses.

Each match will last 10 minutes and every team will be guaranteed to play a minimum of four matches. Matches will begin at 6pm, so players are encouraged to get to the ground in good time (from 5pm).

There is free car parking available, as well as access to the changing and shower facilities.

Rules of the match together with advice on suitable footwear, will be communicated prior to the tournament. We recommend that players in a team all wear the same coloured shirts. Coloured bibs will be provided if there is a clash of colours.

Following the completion of the tournament we will meet at the Miners Community Arts and Music Centre for a post-match social and trophy presentations.
