Charity football tournament returns

The Sealy Cup, the furnishing industry’s answer to Russia 2018, returns to Coventry this year, and The Furniture Makers’ Company is looking for teams to battle it out on the field. 

Now in its sixth year, the five-a-side football tournament, sponsored by Sealy and Cabinet Maker, will take place at the Lucozade Powerleague Football Centre, Coventry on Sunday 1st July. 

Kick-off is at 1.00pm, and teams will be guaranteed a minimum of three matches before the elimination rounds. Every team will also get to play an eight-minute game against Burnley FC’s Vintage Clarets, a team of ex-professional football players. 

Neil Robinson, sales and marketing director for Sealy UK, says: "We are delighted to be sponsoring the tournament for the sixth time, and look forward to what promises to be the biggest number of teams to date. Indeed Sealy are entering a team ourselves this year, so we are hoping for any dubious penalty awards to go our way, in true FIFA style." 

The cost of entering a team of seven is £420 (including VAT) and a barbecue lunch is included. For more information, contact [email protected] or call 02072 565558.
