The time is here… Active8 Sheffield’s Men’s Summer 11-a-side Football Tournament is back.

Invites have been sent to all clubs we would like to see there and now is the time to put pen to paper and secure a place for the event. The tournament will take place over a period of approximately 8 weeks (depending on final numbers) on our 3G Astroturf pitches at Tapton and King Edwards Community Sports Centres. We have set a start date of W/C Monday 3rd June 2013 to get the ball rolling. A full fixture list including dates and venues will be published once all teams have registered.

Greenhill White Hart of the Sheffield Meadowhall Premier Division eventually ran out winners in 2012 after a slow start.

Greenhill White Hart were not the only talking point of this fantastic event as we were delighted to have along ex-professionals on a weekly basis. Hallam 1860 Old Boys pulled out all the stops when it came to drafting in big names for the tournament. Ex-professionals David Graham and Lee Bullen were a big part of the team. We were also treated to a father-and-son duo in the form of current Chesterfield FC player Jack Waddle (not such an old boy) and his ex-England international dad, Chris Waddle (minus the legendary mullet hairstyle, of course). Both teams have confirmed their return for this year’s event, so let the competition begin.

If you think your team is up to the challenge and wants to compete for the title then please get in touch to confirm a place.

If you require any further information or want to ask any questions, then feel free to contact via e-mail at: or call 01142402308 and ask for Lee or Martin.

Come and join the fun.
