Taking place at Powerleague in London on 08 September the tournament aims to raise over 60,000.

Chris Pearson, head of sales and marketing at BM Solutions, says: “We will of course continue the tradition of a fair draw and fair refereeing and I am sure BM will come away with the trophy again! With sixteen teams the competition will be high, no-one wants to lose, personally my tactics may involve supplying the competition with too much food and drink at the curry the night before!”
