World Cup football fever has descended on Broken Hill, with nominations for the Crowe Horwath-BDT Charity Cup now open.
The competition ran in conjunction with the last World Cup in 2010 and is back for a second instalment this year.
“The emphasis is on fun and all the matches are played on one night which makes for a great evening,” organiser Lachlan McInnes said.
Games are held on Tuesday, July 1 from 6pm at the O’Neil Park Soccer Complex.
All funds raised from the event go towards the Broken Hill and Community Cancer Network.
The games will be played under modified rules, including no offside penalties and unlimited substitutions.
Matches are played on half sized fields in 12 minute halves and uniforms are optional.
A maximum of 16 teams will be accepted with a ‘first in, best dressed’ policy.
Teams are 9-a-side and mixed teams are encouraged.
Registrations close on Wednesday, June 25 and nominations cost $5 per player.
The Shinglebacks team claimed the inaugural tournament in 2010.
Registration forms are available to the BDT office or at Crowe Horwath Office at 33 Iodide Street.
