This years tournament celebrated our ten year anniversairy. We encounted some problems at first with Limefields, where the tournamnet is usual held, being vandalised, we had to find an alternative venue. We were lucky enough to be able to book Bowlee Playing Fields for the first weekend in July. Bowlee turned out to be an ideal setting with everyone having a great time. The weather was nice for the majority of the time with some rain creeping in on the sunday afternoon.

We would like to say a big well done to all the teams who took part. All teams worked hard with the runners up and winners of all groups being rewarded with a trophy.

We would also like to say a big thank you to all our volunteers who worked hard all weekend to ensure the tournament was a success.

The Annual Tournament

Every year Popstars host an annual football tournament in Middleton. Held over a weekend, the tournament, which has grown in prestige through out the years, atttracts teams from all over the country. Normally the first weekend in June, it is great fun and enjoyed by every one who takes part.

Raising funds

The purpose of the football tournament is to raise money for Middelton Popstars Acadmey. The money raised goes towards costumes for the members here, as no child is expected to pay for their costumes, transport to shows and in the everyday running of Popstars. The money raised at this event is a crucial part of the funds required to ensure Popstars is able to continue to offer the services it does.

Who can get involved

The ages of the teams involved in the tournament are under 7s to open age and only a small fee is required to enter the tournament. We welcome as many volunteers as possible. As you can imagine arranging the tournament, setting up for the weekend and running the tournament is hard work and requires long hours, so we are extremely thankful to anyone who gives up any of their time.


The next tournament

Arrangements for the next tournament are still to be arranged. We will keep you posted!!!
