After an incredibly successful UK Corporate Games 2015 in Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire, the City of Stoke was officially recognised as the capital of UK Sport by ACES Europe when it was awarded European City of Sport status for 2016. The City boasts an array of first class sporting facilities with many of these being showcased throughout the Games weekend!

The Corporate Games Team is delighted to expand the Worldwide Corporate Sport Community by staging a series of Europe Corporate Cups in Soccer, Netball & Dragon Boat racing respectively.  The 2016 celebrations will be the trigger for these events but plans are in place to see each event become a fabulous annual action packed occasion.  These events will showcase the very best of sport in Stoke-on-Trent and support activity, well-being and health programmes as well as delivering high quality events and significant investment into the City.

It all Kicks off at the Britannia Stadium!

The programme will commence with the Europe Cup of Soccer 2016 in May, where athletes will compete in an action packed weekend of soccer, including an array of celebrations and opportunities in and around Stoke City’s Britannia Stadium. Players will play matches on some excellent pitches in the City at Staffordshire University for the group stages before transferring to experience the state of the art training facilities at Clayton Wood, where Stoke’s Premier League superstars train on a daily basis.

The Impressive Clayton Wood Training Complex

On Saturday evening entrants will enjoy a Grand parade of Teams at the Britannia inside the impressive stadium, before getting the opportunity to move inside to enjoy the live screening of the Champions League Final in the luxurious Waddington Suite!  Plus on Sunday, the array of soccer awards and medals will be presented at the Stadium during the Closing Awards Celebration.  Categories are available for Men, women and over 30’s in both 6 and 11 a-side.

Action Packed Dragonboat Racing at Trentham Gardens

The beautiful Trentham Gardens hosted a hugely successful Dragon Boat festival during the UK Corporate Games 2015 and we are delighted to be bringing the Europe Corporate Cup of Dragon Boat Racing to the City of Stoke-On-Trent in September from the 16th-17th.  Dragonboat Racing is a very inclusive sport and it will bring fun and friendship to the City.  Crews can be composed of employees, clients, family and friends, so the choice is yours on how you fill your dragonboat!  This weekend in September will be a real festival of sport in Stoke-on-Trent with the Europe Corporate Cup of Netball also taking place in the City.  Fenton Manor Leisure Centre is the venue for this netballing spectacular with multiple indoor courts available all under one roof- the atmosphere is set to be phenomenal.  Both of these events will also enjoy a host of celebrations and social components which will intertwine perfectly with the sporting action and networking business opportunities.  Entrants will enjoy a Grand Parade and the Europe Corporate Cup After Party.
