Charity Football Tournament

Tuesday 22 May 2018, noon - 5pm

Location: Falmer Astro Turfs


Brighton SU RAG (Raise & Give) are pleased to announce that we will be hosting a seven-a-side charity football tournament to fundraise money for Mind, the local Mental Health Charity. 

Our tournament will be taking place at Falmer Astro Turfs on Tuesday 22nd May 2018. Kick-off will be at 12pm and we hope to finish by 5pm. 

The cost per person to enter is £4, to include refreshments during the match and all profits will be donated to Mind. More information about what Mind do, can be found here

Players, please arrive at the pitches for 11:40 for a warm up and initial briefing.

How the tournament will work

Teams may consist of a maximum of nine players and no player may appear for more than one team. Only seven players will play on the pitch at one time.

Each team will first play 2 randomly selected opposing teams in the knockout round.

After all teams have played 2 matches, the 6 highest scoring teams will compete in the semi-final match.

After the semi-final matches, the 2 highest scoring teams will compete head-to-head in the final to be crowned the winners.

Match times will be released when all 9 teams have been submitted complete.

Additional Notes

If knockout games are level at the end of normal time a penalty shootout will be held to determine the winners. 

During the tournament, teams will receive three points for a win, one for a draw and zero for a defeat. League placing will be determined by points won, followed by goal difference, followed by goals scored, followed by the result between the two teams in question. 

If teams remain equal after this then a penalty shootout will be held to determine final league placing. All teams must be ready for the match at the appointed kick-off time. 

If a team does not arrive within five minutes of their kick-off, their opponents may claim a three-nil win. 

All entries and payments must be received no later than Friday 18th May 2018
