Bobby Moore Event

Gloucestershire FA is encouraging people to sign up for the Walking Football Festival on Sunday 9th July at their headquarters in Almondsbury in aid of the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK.

The Walking Football Festival in Gloucestershire is for anyone over the age of 18 who wants to get involved in an innovative version of the game – regardless of ability or experience – and will be one of 32 held across the country during July.

We will have a tournament taking place for those over 45 years old across two categories (45+ and 60+). Whether you want to register as part of a team, or as an individual, the Gloucestershire FA will welcome entries from everyone who wants to take part. Teams of six will be brought together on an informal basis, with a series of games and competitions taking place throughout the day.

Registration for the Walking Football Festival will cost a £10 per person if you wish to take part in the tournament. 100% of this money will be donated to The FA’s official charity partner, The Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK, which was set up by Stephanie Moore MBE in memory of her husband to fund pioneering, life-saving bowel cancer research.
Since the fund was set up in 1993, mortality rates have fallen by 30% and over £23.5 million has been raised, but there is still so much more to do.

In addition to the Walking Football Festival, a number of other fundraising competitions and gameswill also take place during the course of the day, as well as plenty of food and drink available so please bring along family & friends.

To register your interest, please contact Jack Stanbury on or 01454 615 888 by Friday 30th June 2017.
