The annual Forever Manchester Football 7s Tournament, kindly sponsored by Auto Trader, will take place on Friday 29th March 2019 on the 3G Community Pitch at FC United of Manchester’s, Broadhurst Park 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, companies or groups can enter a maximum of 2 teams.
As well as helping to raise 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.
About the Tournament
The full-sized floodlit 3G pitch will be divided into three pitches playing across the width of the pitch. Each match will be refereed by an independent qualified referee.
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.
