Vital Football 7 Aside Tournament

Vital Football 7 Aside Tournament

The first annual Vital Football tournament kicks off at Stanley Park, Blackpool on Saturday 14th July, and we`re asking if YOU want to be a part of it.

The 7 aside all day event costs just £50 a team to enter, full value for money with every team playing at least eight games throughout the day.

With a maximum of 10 players per team (3 subs), that means it will only be a fiver each - which covers costs for hiring the pitch for the afternoon and for a winners trophy, which I'm sure you'll agree isn't bad value for money.

The tournament will be a league of eight, with each league game being 10 minutes long. The top four go into the 'Champions Trophy` and play semi finals, with the bottom four going into the Wooden Spoon knockout, also taking the form of semi finals and final. Each knockout game will last for 15 minutes.

The winners of the tournament will receive a trophy and £50 beer money from Vital. The winners of the wooden spoon will also receive a trophy!

There will be two qualified referees officiating throughout the day.

As this is the inaugural tournament, this year will be the basis for further tournaments and we hope that it grows into an annual thing and gets bigger and better each year. We want you to be a part of history and of course, have a fantastic day out in the 'wonderful' seaside town of Blackpool!

With the tournament taking place on a Saturday, why not make a weekend out of it and take in the sights (some of which, admittedly, you will have wished you'd remembered to pack that gun of yours!!) of Blackpool - for example the Pleasure Beach or the many bars and nightclubs on offer in the evening.

Would you like to take part?

Get in touch with either TorontoPool or Jerry on Blackpool Vital through: blackpool@vitalfootball.co.uk or jerry27@hotmail.co.uk

Either can help with hotel bookings and directions/transport to Stanley Park.

Please note, only eight teams can enter, so hurry if you want to be part of this great tournament!

What a GREAT idea. I would say judging by the members this site is building up we could EASILY put together a team of 10 players, but being able to make the event would be the real thing wouldn't it?!?! People have work and family commitments etc. don't they.

Well yes you do have to look to the Semi Final and Final as clearly any team we could assemble would make it that far :) I get warn out (Stephane Hedgehog stylee!) just walking down the road now, anymore than one 10 minute game would probably KILL ME!

Fab idea but A) why Blackpool!!!! Middle of nowhere! B) Vital members only? If so, how would they validate this, get your talented mates to sign up an hey presto! In theory good idea but wrong location IMO.

I think we may stand a better chance if images were beamed in as players! Blackpool aint that bad, besides its being organised by Blackpool so it's only fair. They already have at least two, maybe three teams signed up so if anyone wants in from here SPEAK NOW!
