1 August 2012 / Unity Cup in Stockholm

News about the Unity Cup from IGLFA member Stockholm Snipers:

Stockholm Snipers are together with the straight local team Råsunda FC hosting a football tournament in Stockholm during Stockholm Pride in the beginning of August 2012. We are hoping that you would like to spend some bright summer days of football, parties and friendship with us in Stockholm.

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. It will be played over 2 days with 3-4 games per team and a game length about 2x30 to 2x35 minutes. Everything depending on the number of participating teams.
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.
