Over 50s Walking Football Tournament

Durham FA are hosting an Over 50’s Walking Football Tournament in November.

The tournament will take place  on the 3G surface at Sunderland Goals on Sunday 10th November for the Over 50’s. The event will be take place between 10am and 12pm. This is a good opportunity for current walking football centres to play against other centres, or an opportunity to get a group together who would like to play walking football more regularly. 

Games will be played in a 5 a side format and the tournament is open to both men and women aged 50+. The maximum squad size for the tournament is 10.

All games will be officiated by Durham FA affiliated referees who have undertaken The FA Walking Football Referee’s Course.

The cost to enter the tournament is £10. However all teams must be affiliated to Durham FA (£25) and take out a personal accident insurance package (Cheapest being £22.50). These costs are a one off fee and mean that teams will be able to play in the rest of the Durham FA Walking Football tournaments and  festivals in the 2019/20 season, as well as The FA People’s Cup.
