Celebrating 10 years of Greenwich Invitational!

Friday 16th June 2017

The Invitational is back and this time, celebrating its 10th year. The free annual football tournament brings together hundreds of young people every year in the Royal Borough of Greenwich and returns this summer.

Fantastic teams across the borough participated last year and Prize Hunters, won for the second time during the finals at Samuel Montagu Youth Club in Kidbrooke, taking away the prizes and prestigious cup.

The same prizes will be up for grabs as last year, with the overall winners receiving either £250 worth of Bluewater vouchers or PS4 each. In addition there will be £20 JD Sports vouchers available for each venue winner.

Carrying on the legacy this year, Greenwich Invitational will continue to be played in a 6-a-side format and sponsored by the Royal Borough of Greenwich, Canary Wharf Construction as well as MOPAC, a government based initiative raising awareness around knife crime.

As a bonus prize, there will be two PS4s which will be awarded from a random draw amongst participants who come to every session.

Starting on the 1st August 2017, from 6pm-8pm, the schedule for the invitational is as follows:

• Tuesdays- Sporting Club Thamesmead, Bayliss Avenue, Thamesmead, London SE28 8NJ 

• Wednesdays- Samuel Montagu Youth Club, 122 Broad Walk, Kidbrooke, London, SE3 8ND

The finals will be held on the brand new astro turf at Charlton Athletic’s Training Ground in New Eltham.

The Greenwich Invitational is open to boys aged 13-19 and girls aged 10-19 who live or study in Royal Greenwich. It is free to enter. The girls only tournament will occur alongside the boys on Wednesdays at Samuel Montagu Youth Club.
