As well as meeting on a regular basis to watch their beloved team play, the club also hold a range of charity events throughout the football season and on this, their fourth year, the 5-A-Side Charity Football Tournament looks to be bigger and better than ever.
WHAT AND WHEN? BMUSC are giving anyone over the age of 18 who is passionate about football the chance to gather a team together and join in on the day (see below for how to apply). The event will be held on Saturday 19th November at Slacks Creek Football Club, Usher Park, Daisy Hill, starting at 2pm and running until approximately 8pm when the final matches will be played under floodlights.
It's sure to be a great family day out and we're happy to announce that the event will be part sponsored this year by Brisbane's very own Ginger Sport, who will be attending on the day to keep kids entertained with various footballing activities and mini matches on their famous inflatable pitch.
If that wasn't enough to keep the kids occupied whist the adults battle it out in the main event, there will be a jumping castle, face painting, raffle and heaps of interactive activities available throughout the afternoon. There is also a licensed bar and canteen that will be open on site to keep guests fed and watered and plenty of shaded areas to set up camp and enjoy the day.
WHY? The event is being held on behalf of the Mater Little Miracles Foundation, a charity who tirelessly fight to provide the best possible start to life for seriously ill and premature babies cared for at Mater.
Mater Mothers’ Hospitals welcome a new baby into the world for every 32 births in Australia—that’s one in every seven Queenslanders born who can say they’re a ‘Mater baby.’
HOW? This year's tournament is open to anyone over the age of 18 years old. There can be a minimum of 6 players entered per team and a maximum of 10. To enter a team, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a application form and any additional information. Complete and return the form with payment.
The cost of entry is $25 per player and payment must be the total amount of the team entered. Please include your team name as a reference. A team cannot be entered unless a name is linked to a payment.
