BT SPORT LAUNCHES BT SPORT PUB CUP WITH THE FINAL TO TAKE PLACE AT THE EMIRATES

BT Sport is launching a free to enter football tournament to celebrate grassroots football and give pub teams a chance to follow in the footsteps of their heroes with the final taking place at one of the best football stadiums in Europe next month.

The BT Sport Pub Cup is available for anyone over the age of 18 to enter and represent their local BT Sport pub, whether that be people who are part of an existing pub team, established football team or a group of mates.

Starting off as a 7-a-side tournament, sixteen qualifying teams will be chosen at random, full kit will be provided by BT Sport and the first matches will take place at the home of Queens Park Rangers, Loftus Road on Wednesday, 10 May and Everton’s Goodison Park on Monday, 15 May.

The Emirates, the home of Arsenal, will then take centre stage, as it hosts the final on Tuesday, 23 May, consisting of an 11-a-side match over a full 90 minutes. BT Sport pundits, David James and John Hartson will each manage one of the teams, with special guest Harry Redknapp presenting the trophy to the winning side.

Any team entering just needs to ask permission of the licensee if they can represent the pub, and the winning pub could win a year’s free BT Sport subscription and a £5,000 cash prize to spend on their pub. Teams can be entered at the following link www.btsportpubcup.com.

Bruce Cuthbert, director commercial customers, BT Sport, said: “I’m delighted to be launching the inaugural BT Sport Pub Cup. It’s great to give something back to our BT Sport customers with this free to enter football tournament, giving pub teams the chance to play at some fantastic football stadiums, be managed by former professional footballers and the chance to win silverware at the Emirates.”

Score three goals and become the goalkeeper. A simple game, usually played for fun rather than to produce any winner.
