A WINNER-TAKES-ALL jackpot of $5,000 is on offer on August 28 as the Soccer Saturdays seven-series tournament continues with another Futsal Edition, scheduled for the Maloney Indoor Sporting Arena, Maloney.

In a media release issued by the organisers, it stated, “this concept was idealised as an opportunity to promote and improve community spirit and neighbourhood camaraderie, whilst indirectly encouraging participants and supporters to ‘know and appreciate their country’.”

The August 28 event will be a day-long affair (ten hours in total) comprising 16 teams in five-a-side matches.

The registration fee is $800 while each team must have a maximum of ten players and, in return, receive a case of sport drink and water.

There will be a well-stocked non-alcoholic bar, food and live entertainment at the Maloney Arena, as well as secured parking, on-site security and medical service providers; while lunch will be provided to teams upon request.

Among the sponsors for the Soccer Saturdays are Blue Waters, Monster Energy, Pepsi, Ting and Lucozade Sport.
