Barton St. Battalion Charity Cup kicks off on the 18th of October, playing on the same pitch we will all be watching Forge FC, Tim Hortons Field. Teams from Niagara, Mississauga, Kitchener, Forge FC as well as our own Battalion will be competing to raise money for the brilliant Interval House of Hamilton, their mission being ” Violence free lives for all women, children and communities”. Very pleased to say 100% of the money raised will be donated to them.
As for the format, an 8 team, 7v7 tournament, (including goalkeepers) where each team will play 3 x 20 minute games, plus a final will be played that evening. There will be 2 groups of four teams competing, the winner of each group advances to the final. The tournament is open to men and women. We request players be over the age of 16. There is no limit to the amount of players per team, (we would suggest 12 minimum) and the cost to each player per team is a minimum of $10. Some teams have amazingly committed to $20 per player. After all, it’s for a fantastic charity!
If you want to register to play for Barton St. Battalion, please add your contact details to our sign up sheet by using the link: signup.com/go/RKPCkUr Our aim is to have at least two teams representing our Supporters Group. Skill level and fitness level are not a necessity! (*This signup form is not for other teams.*)
We are aware than many people might not have the opportunity to join in or attend, due to time or location, so we have also set up an online donations page chuffed.org/project/battalion-charity-cup
Please give any amount you can, it is more than greatly appreciated.
Let’s make this a great night of soccer under the floodlights, whilst raising lots of money for a truly worthy cause!
