Goals gear up for a big month
2:15pm Thursday 25th October 2012 in Sport
Goals Southampton will be hosting the only official 5-a-side Movember football tournament to help raise money and awareness for prostate and testicular cancer next month.
The Movember Cup takes place on November 18 at the Goals Soccer Centre on the Millbrook Point Road at 2pm.
Movember is responsible for thousands of ‘Mos’ appearing on men’s faces in the UK and around the world every November. The aim of the campaign is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer charities. Last year Movember raised in excess of £79.3m.
Goals Southampton Centre manager, Kevin Love, said: “Our Movember tournament will be a lot of fun, but with a serious message at the heart of it. We hope to have as many Mos as possible taking part in the tournament and to raise lots of money for this great cause.
“For those who are unable to grow their own, we’ll even provide you with a temporary one for £2.00 with all the proceeds going to the charity”
You can enter your team in to the event by contacting Goals Southampton on 02380 510 666, or by visiting www.goalsfootball.co.uk/movember Entry fee is only £40, with all players also receiving a complimentary grooming kit from Gillette.
The winners of each of the 43 regional tournaments will then be entered into a national prize draw to win an all-expenses paid trip to Copenhagen on Saturday, December 1, to play against a Danish 5-a-side team.
