Let the footy battle commence!

Two of our Taverns pubs are competing in the BT Sport Pub Cup 2018 regional heats at Vitality Stadium later this month.

The BT Sport Pub Cup is a free tournament for football teams up and down the country. It’s open to any footy teams that represent their local pubs and is all about giving Sunday League players a Premier League experience.

23 of our pubs signed up this year, with Fiveways and The Famous Old Spa making it through to the 7-a-side regional heats in Bournemouth on 15 May.

If they’re successful, they’ll go on to compete at St George’s Park (the training ground for the England team!) for the semi-finals and then King Power Stadium, home to Leicester City, for the final. And, to top it off, the finalists will be coached by BT Sport pundits and former Welsh internationals Robbie Savage and John Hartson, as well as receiving £5,000 and a year’s free BT Sport subscription for the pub they’re representing!

Good luck to both teams – we can’t wait to see how you get on!
