Tournament date and venue – Saturday 27th July @ St Margarets Pastures, Leicester LE1 3EA
(https://maps.http://goo.gl/maps/jcCgv) and will take place on the brand new 3G pitches. It will be from around 10am til 4/5pm. The tournament will be 6-a-side, 20min a game, unlimited rolling subs.
We’re aiming for 8 teams (2 groups of 4), with the top two going into a cup and the bottom two going into a shield. With semi-finals, 3rd/4th place play offs, and finals, every team will get 5 games.
We have all 4 pitches booked, 3 of them will be used for the tournament and the 4th can be used for friendlies, warming up, or dossing. Should be plenty of time for all 3.
Teams are asked to make/bring a trophy/prize offering with them.
Parking – There is ample parking (enough for 100 vehicles) in the sports centre car park adjacent to the pitches. The cost is £1.80 for up to 10hours. Street parking is hard to find and not worth the hassle.
Entry fee – To help cover tournament costs we are asking each team to pay a £20 entry fee.
Food – There will be food on the day provided by Veggies Catering Campaign (a long standing workers’ co-operative based in Notts) and it will all be vegan. Anyone wanting anything non-vegan can pop 10 mins into town which is round the corner. There will be a 1hr break for some dinner.
Gig – There will be a gig in the evening after the tournament. It will be run in keeping with the ‘Prix Libre’ part of the Leicester punk scene with the entry fee being up to the you, you pay what you can afford/feel the gig is worth. Hopefully aiming for a mix of stuff not just the soothing sounds of pots and pans being hit with spanners at high velocity. No fucking jazz mind. If all goes to plan, we will be running our own bar, please use this as it will be helping us cover the tournament costs.
Accommodation – The tournament is taking place slap bang in the middle of Leicester within half a mile of the City Centre so there will be no camping available. As a team we have a very limited amount of sleeping spaces available in our own homes and those of our friends/supporters with priority given to the Roter Stern Kickers players travelling over from Germany and then to those within the UK who are travelling the furthest distance.
Other stuff – There will also be a no-holds barred table football tournament at some point during the weekend.
