And the winner is......
Peterborough is renowned for its thriving business scene, with the city endowed with a huge assortment of successful organisations, representing various industries. On a daily basis these companies will be competing with their commercial counterparts, but this time around it’s their footballing credentials that will be put to the test.
POSH official sponsor, Mick George Ltd is set to host a 6-a-side Football tournament at the ABAX Stadium, providing the local business community and club supporters the opportunity to gain bragging rights.
Following the success of last year’s Mick George charity match, the partner has evolved the event as it establishes the occasion annually in the calendar. This time around, all funds will be donated to the Chris Turner Statue Fund, which currently has a £5,000 shortfall of the designated milestone to complete the project.
Companies and supporters across the city are invited to enter and try and become victorious in the inaugural Mick George Cup. The cost of entry is £280 per team, with squads of up to 7 players permitted. If you wish to gain a little extra advantage, you can even ‘buy’ a former POSH legend to be part of your team!
Taking place Friday 12th May, participants will be able to make use of the changing rooms, pitch, and stand facility before the competitive action gets underway at 6pm. The matches will conclude around 9pm with food and drinks available in the bar after the tournament, along with the presentation of the Mick George Cup.

Jon Stump, Finance Director at Mick George Ltd commented: ‘’Last year’s event was a brilliant occasion. It is a rare opportunity for most to get out and play under the lights of a professional football stadium. You could tell that some were caught up in the excitement, and perhaps didn’t fulfil their full potential, so to speak.’’
Stump Continued: ‘’As official club sponsors, it’s a pleasure to provide ‘once in a lifetime opportunities’ for anyone who wishes to be involved. This event certainly does that, whilst raising valuable funds for charity. Amending the format this time around, allows us to increase participation, which should be beneficial all round.’’
