Squads can be from 6-8 players and must include at least 2 men and 2 women.

At any one time whilst playing, there should be a minimum of 2 men and 2 women playing. The rest of the team is up to you BUT they all need to be over 18. If you need to find some ladies, we’re sure the Crawley Old Girls (COGs) will be able to help!

Have you got what it takes to win the Les Turnbull Memorial Cup, which was last won in 2022 by Bully’s Ballerz!

Take your chance to play on the hallowed turf at the Broadfield Stadium.

Each player will need to raise a minimum sponsorship of £20 each to play, which will be shared between the CTSA and Crawley Open House.

If you need a form to collect sponsorship money, there is one available to download here – Festival of Football Player Sponsorship Form 2023

To reserve your team’s place, team sheets must be completed with the initial 6 players’ names and emailed to

>>> Festival of Football Team Entry Form 2023

Entries will be on a first come, first served basis.

Closing date for entries is Thursday 18th May so that the fixtures can be produced.

Team Managers will need to register your teams by 3:00pm and a Managers’ Briefing will be held at 3:15pm. Games will kick off at 3:30pm. Rules and match details will be given out at Registration.

Please make sure shin pads are worn!

Teams won’t be allowed to take part if the minimum sponsorship money isn’t received by the time of registration.

We are also keen to speak to referees who can take charge of some matches. Interested parties should email

Please remember that this is a fun event, for charity, (fancy dress optional!) and we want everyone to enjoy themselves. All officials/helpers will be volunteers.

Drinks will be available with the Mayo Wynne Baxter Suite Bar open.

League registered teams will not be eligible to play in the Festival.

So, dust off your boots Ladies & Gentlemen, for a fun evening of football!

NB: No Under 18’s are allowed to play.
