Chance to play at SAFC training HQ.

Budding amateur footballers are being given the opportunity to take part in a five-a-side football tournament at SAFC’s state-of-the-art Academy of Light training headquarters courtesy of the club’s charity.

Businesses, community groups and existing five-a-side teams are all invited to take part in the annual ‘Foundation Fives’ tournament on Friday June 20.

The annual tournament sees teams participate in group stages before proceeding to a knock out phase, guaranteeing a minimum of five games for every team.

Tournament winners will receive the famous ‘Foundation Fives’ trophy with runners-up receiving individual awards, a special award will be presented to the overall player of the tournament.

Teams can enter a squad of seven players, with rolling substitutions, only for £250+VAT per team - which equates to just £35+VAT per player.

Places are very limited and the closing date is June 17.

Richard Routledge, Foundation of Light Business Development Manager said: “This is a great chance to play at SAFC’s training facility and take part in a tournament that will benefit grassroots football for youngsters in the area.”
