A charity football tournament is heading to Manchester this summer, aiming to raise £50,000 for three sector charities.

The final amount raised by the Hospitality Kicks event will be split between Only A Pavement Away, The Tim Bacon Foundation and the Licensed Trade Charity.

The tournament, which promises to be ‘a day of free kicks, fundraising and no doubt, fierce rivalry, will kick off at 9am on 27 June 2023 at Wythenshawe Sports Ground in Manchester.

Matches will be played until 3pm with food and drink available throughout the day before the winner is crowned by a soon to be revealed, special guest. It will conclude with entertainment and drinks running until 6.30pm.

Team details

Founded by hospitality Wi-Fi provider Wireless Social, Hospitality Kicks aims to bring together 40 teams from the sector.

Places are open for operators and suppliers to form a 7-aside team (£300 for operators and £800 for suppliers).

A variety of sponsorship opportunities are also available including branding on footballs and corner flags as well as operating food and drink stands alongside the after-party entertainment.

Humbling response

Wireless Social CEO Julian Ross said: “I truly believe there is no industry better than hospitality at coming together to support people and great causes.

“I’m thrilled to be launching Hospitality Kicks this summer. Team registrations, donations and sponsorships have already started pouring in so I encourage you to move fast if you want to be involved as not only will it be a fun day, the funding we’ll raise for Only A Pavement Away, the Licensed Trade Charity and the Tim Bacon Foundation is vital.

“It’s truly humbling how positive the initial response to Hospitality Kicks has been and I hope it will be an event in the industry calendar people will be excited to be part of for many years to come.”
