The Foundation of Light is hosting a special 5-a-side World Cup Corporate Tournament to celebrate the opening of the state-of-the-art Beacon of Light.
Taking place on the Beacon’s brand new 3G 5-a-side pitches and in the 4G rooftop football barn on Thursday 28th June from midday, this is an exclusive chance for businesses to play in the inaugural tournament which is expected to become an annual fixture.
Teams will be placed into groups with the winners advancing to the play-offs for the chance to lift the trophy.
Proceeds from the tournament will go towards the life-changing community work done by Foundation of Light who will move into the £20m facility later this year.
Phil King, Beacon of Light General Manager, said: “We’ve been very lucky to enjoy the support of our local business community in the planning, construction and now completion of the Beacon of Light but we still need some help reaching our final target.
“This Corporate Tournament is a great chance to enjoy our pristine, state-of-the-art facilities, meet and compete with other local businesses, and support the positive community work that will take place at the Beacon of Light helping hundreds of thousands every year.”
Entry costs just £700 (including VAT) per team and includes: team kit (top and shorts); team photo; healthy refreshments and a post-tournament buffet while watching England take on Belgium.
A maximum of eight players are allowed per squad but there are no restrictions on how many teams each company enters – if you want to settle a grudge match with a different department this is your chance!
