Mark Wright Hosting Football Tournament

Posted by

Former Liverpool and England Captain Mark Wright is hosting a unique football tournament on Friday 13th June in support of fostering and adoption.

The day kicks off with groups of underprivileged children, nominated by sponsors, playing Grass Roots Football with the Legends at Goals in Cheetham Hill, an amazing opportunity for kids to learn invaluable skills and to have fun with some of the greatest names in Football.

Mark passion on the pitch now extends to the valuable work he does with vulnerable children. As a Foster Carer himself, and an Adoptive Parent, he plans on using the day not just as a unique opportunity for footy mad fans, but also as a platform to create awareness of the need for children within the North West, to be given stable loving homes.

Following the youngsters kick about, the more competitive Corporate Football Tournament will begin. 16 teams will compete against each other in a knockout Competition – each team will play at least 4 games throughout the day. The winning team then plays against the Legends in the tournament final – and for the Final, they have secured the Roof Top Pitch at the stunning New Football Hotel .

The match will be streamed live to the Players’ Lounge in the Hotel where the guests and sponsors will have live commentary on three large screens and the BBC have already committed to film the day to be shown on National Broadcast.

Following the final there will be a Q&A with all the Legends and an opportunity for team photographs.

The event then moves into the breath-taking Stadium Suite at Football Hotel – with a spectacular Gala Dinner Awards Ceremony and Memorabilia Auction. Entertainment from a top Comedian will top of the night, and all guests leave with a fabulous Gift Bag.

Among the players confirmed so far, is Liverpool Legend John Barnes.

For further information please contact or telephone 07785376478.

Team of 10 cost £2,500 which includes the full itinerary above.

We hope you will all show your support for Mark’s event, and look forward to seeing you there!
