The EA Sports/Future GamesAid Challenge Cup

Back by popular demand after the huge success of last year’s footy challenge is the annual Games Media versus Industry Allstars ‘grudge’ Challenge Cup played on Swindon FC’s professional ground

EA Sports and Future Publishing have teamed up to bring you the chance to play at Swindon Town FC on May 18th and raise a bunch of money for GamesAid into the bargain.

Are you a midfield maestro?  A defensive colossus or a star striker? Are you willing to show off your skills to the rest of the industry, then the EA Sports/Future GamesAid Challenge Cup should be perfect for you.

Last year was a close victory for the Games Media team so we’re expecting some big signings for the Industry team as they try to exact their footballing revenge and raise money for a bunch of good causes.

A full 90 minutes on a Swindon Town’s pro pitch, with the obligatory four minutes of injury time added on is yours if you can do the following:

1.       Contact Rich Keith to let him know who you are, what position you covet and lie about your skill levels. [email protected]

2.       Pop over to this Just Giving Page to deposit your £35.00  playing fee.

3.       Clean your boots and shinpads and find your lucky football pants (all other kit will be provided)

4.       Practice your celebrations and tall stories for the pub later.

Confirmation of kick-off time (likely to be 2pm) plus details of directions / timing / team captains and refreshments will be sent out to you once you have followed steps 1 and 2.

Good luck and we’ll see you there!
