Chelsea Supporters Football Tournament 2015
The format will be very similar to previous years with 10 team contesting both the Plate Trophy and the Overall Winners Cup, played on two pitches throughout the day. Two new trophies are being supplied this year by the club and we thank them for that and, for the use of the Cobham facilities once again for the 9th year of this annual event.
As in previous years we expect the entries to be oversubscribed and we ask all teams wishing to enter to contact us here by 31st May at the LATEST, all entries will go into a hat and the ten teams will be drawn by a member of Chelsea FC staff to ensure fairness. All successful teams will be notified following the draw.
Please remember, all teams entering MUST BE Chelsea supporters and not play together in any leagues, this is a ‘Fun Event’ and although we expect some competitive spirit please remember what the day is all about, a chance to play at Cobham and to play in a fun tournament with fellow Chelsea supporters.
Entry fees this year will be notified to all teams in the near future once we know the costs of referees, St Johns etc, any excess money will go in the charities pot that will benefit from the raffle that we hold on the day. This year Chelsea are donating some great prizes once again, further details on this will follow, we ask you to support this on the day.
The two charities this year will once again be ‘Regenorate UK’ and ‘Chelsea Foundation’ who both do great work within the Chelsea community.
The on site changing rooms will be available to use and St Johns Ambulance will be around during the day to supply plasters and cuddles! and we also have the refreshment wagon available for food and drinks, we have also ordered the sunshine but have no guarantees of this appearing! There will also be an appearance by some of the Chelsea Old Boys who once again will assist with the refereeing during the day!! again, details of who will be attending will be confirmed in the near future.
As always, help and assistance will be encouraged and indeed, welcome. If you would like to come along to assist us then please e-mail us here.
Further updates will follow and we look forward to seeing you and your teams on the day.
Peter and Cliff
