Monday, 29 th July 2013: Gaming charity SpecialEffect is organising a five-a-side football tournament to take place the 5 th September 2013. The tournament will be a Champions League format, played within walking distance of Wembley Stadium at the Wembley Stadium Power League venue. As well as a trophy up for grabs, prizes will also be given to the winning team supplied by the Games Industry and players will get the chance to win signed football memorabilia in the event raffle.

Teams will only need to gather together a squad of seven players to compete. The tournament will have full event management from Power League, including referees. The Wembley Power League venue has very convenient transport links from London and the majority of the UK. Kick-off is at 1pm, and there's a licensed bar for essential rehydration afterwards.

First Touch Games have kindly agreed to become match ball sponsors for the event with New Star Games sponsoring the Star Man player of the Tournament and GameWagon sponsoring the fair play trophy. All three companies have also entered teams alongside the likes of Gamer Network, Codemasters Racing Studio, Konami, and Marmalade.

The entry fee is £250 per team, which includes a donation to the work SpecialEffect are doing to level the playing field for gamers with disabilities. Register either by submitting your match fee at www.justgiving.com/SpecialEffectWembley or paying by cheque/ bank transfer to SpecialEffect. Any questions, contact Nick Streeter nick@specialeffect.org.uk or call 01608 810055.
