Business Fives – Charity Football Tournament

Business Fives national charity football events allow businesses to promote a healthy lifestyle to their employees. They offer the chance for people to get out of the office and focus on their well-being whilst raising money for their chosen charity. The five-a-side events allow businesses to come together and make new connections, strengthen relationships within their team but also focus on their CSR.

Business Fives runs corporate charity football events throughout the UK, Ireland and beyond delivering professionally organised events that are fun for the entire office.  Professionals from all sectors and all abilities are welcome and invited to get involved in various local qualifying events ahead of the respective national finals.

The events offer professionals a chance to leave the office, focus on their well-being and make some new connections while raising money for your own charity causes. The five-a-side events allow businesses to come together to strengthen their team relationships, focus on their CSR and make new connections with other players.

The mixed events are open to any company to join and they cater for all levels of ability with a tiered tournament format that allows companies of a similar standard to enjoy game time against each other.

Each Business choosing to take part in the charity football events nominate a charity partner and all the money they raise is donated directly to their charity. On top of this Business Fives also has a company commitment to give a bumper donation to the winning team’s chosen charity.
