Unity Cup Stockholm 2012

Stockholm Snipers are together with the straight local team Råsunda FC hosting the UNITY CUP, a football tournament in Stockholm during Stockholm Pride in the beginning of August 2012.

The tournament is supported both by Svenska Fotbollsförbundet (Swedish FA) and Stockholms Fotbollsförbund (Stockholm FA) and by inviting some straight teams our goal is to build respect between the communities through football. Råsunda FC is a supporter team to AIK, the best Stockholm team which finished second in Allsvenskan (Swedish Premier League) 2011.

That connection will also give extra interest and publicity to the tournament and it is possible that a team consisting of former veteran AIK-players will take part in the tournament.
The tournament will be played both as a more competitive 11-a-side and a 7-a-side tournament for up to 9 teams each.

The Venue for the tournament will be Skytteholms IP which consists of three fields with high quality artificial grass next to Råsunda Stadium (the Swedish national football stadium). The venue is situated near Solna Centrum and the metro with 8 minutes ride to the city center is only a couple of minutes away.

The tournament will be open for whole teams or individual players without a team for who we are helping to find a team to play with.

Stockholm Snipers is working on putting together an affordable package including among other things a 4 nights stay in a double or triple room in a hotel located in the city center, a travel card for the public transportations, entrance pass for the Stockholm Pride.

More information are available soon at the Facebook Site of the event.

Let's go to Stockholm and enjoy some bright summer days of football, parties and friendship !
