Kicking in for charity
Tuesday, 29th June, 2010
Sixteen teams will battle it out for charity tonight in the WHK-BDT Charity Cup.
The fun-focussed soccer competition has been called as a way of celebrating the World Cup andhelping charities.
A range of workplaces have signed up, with teams hailing from schools, the RSPCA, banks, the Flying Doctors and all over the city.
Each team will play two games tonight at the soccer grounds, with the high scorers moving through to a final. Prize money will be awarded to a local charity of the winning team's choice.
WHK and the BDT have chipped in to start a $500 prize pot, with nomination fees from each team adding to that total.
Entry to tonight's tussle is free, but a donation bucket will be passed around, and those proceeds will also go to the winning charity.
WHK planned the event as a fun night with workmates to get into the World Cup spirit and raise money for a good cause.
Tonight's teams have been divided into two groups of eight. Group one's games kick off at 6pm and group two's at 6.40pm.
All games will start at the same time so players are asked to be prompt.
The emphasis is on a good time. Matches will be played on half fields and last 30 minutes. Unlimited substitutions are allowed with no offside rule or referees.
Hot food and drink will be available from the canteen.
