UCC is spreading the word about the ISPCC‘s 2nd Annual ISPCC Childline Soccer Blitz.
This is a 7-a-side tournament with teams of 10 to allow for 3 substitutions.
When & Where:
Sunday 11th March – Cork – Mardkye Arena
This action packed, fun filled event promises to be an exciting day out for all the family. Along side the main soccer games we will also be running Penalty Shoot Outs and Soccer Skills for children. We will have food stalls to keep you well fed and have entertainment to keep everyone going for the day!
Whether you are part of your sports and social soccer team or play against a group of your friends at the weekend, there’s a space for you!
Grand prize for the winning team of an expenses paid trip for 10 to see a premiership game at a later stage in the year. This will include flights, accommodation and match tickets.
The Childline Charity Cup will also be up for grabs and this will be rotated on an annual basis.
We will also have a host of smaller runner-up prizes on offer.
How to enter:
All teams need to fundraise for the ISPCC Childline service in Cork to take part in the blitz. Each team needs to raise €1,500, that’s €150 per team member.
There are a number of ways to do this. Each team member can take a sponsorship card to raise their share of the entry. That’s just €10 from 15 people for each person!
Teams can also fundraise through their place of work, i.e dress down day, office Olympics, company sponsorship etc.
Teams can also fundraise together by holding a table quiz, a waxing night, or any other fun event to help them to raise the €1,500.
Each team will be required to pay an upfront fee of €150 at time of registration to secure their place at the soccer blitz.
There will be approx 20 teams at each tournament , playing over a 4-hour period, 2-hour league going to a 2-stage knockout.
We will also have extra challenges on the day such as a Crossbar Challenge, penalty shoot out etc.
Why take part:
Childline is Ireland’s only multi-media listening service for children providing support, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Tough times are tough on children too and calls to Childline have soared in 2011.
Just €5 can help us answer one more call. Each team taking part and raising €1,500 has the potential to help us answer 300 more calls for some of Ireland’s most vulnerable children in need of support.
They need our help and we need yours!
There is a limit of 20 teams per tournament so please sign up early to avoid disappointment.
