STUDENTS VS. STAFF CHARITY FOOTBALL MATCH 2020

Time to look forward to the future, picture it now. It’s May 2020, the sun is shining, exams are over, everyone is still talking about brexit and you’re getting ready to play a football match at Fratton Park. That’s right, it’s that time of the year we invite students and staff members to register their interest to play in next years charity football match.

The Student vs. Staff Charity Football Match, will again be held in May 2020 The match, now in it’s 5th year, will again be held in May on the hallowed turf of Fratton Park. With the scores tied, 2 wins to the students and 2 for the staff, this year is all to play for. We have raised over £43,000 for charity since the event began and hope to break the £50,000 mark this year.

In previous years it has been difficult to field a mixed team of male and female players due to FA rules. This year, we are welcoming all to play. The game still cannot be mixed but we will be having a male and female student and staff team who will play separately. We are currently unsure of the exact format, but would encourage you to register your interest using the form below.
