From the 31st May to 2nd June 2013, football players of all ages and abilities and both genders will get the chance to enjoy everything that Liverpool Football Club has to offer as they compete in the 6th World Corporate Cup of Soccer.

Positioned as the ultimate football festival for regular players, the Cup will see teams from all across the World, the UK and Merseyside come together to enter Soccer 6’s or full 11-a-side, in men’s, men’s 30+ and women’s event categories.

Spaces are limited to GUARANTEE every team the chance to play on the Hallowed turf. As you would imagine, with places at a premium in such a terrific competition, a number of teams have already reserved their place prior to the Launch of the event. Ernst and Young, Cern, RSA, MDE Medical, Kevin Edwards Associates and AFC Burton are just some of the teams already on board.

Cup Director, Ben Sedgemore commented, “Our Organisation has been developing great Multisport festivals for 25 years around the world and we have been proud to deliver some incredible experiences. However, the spirit, camaraderie and memories formed by the World Corporate Cup are always difficult to match. We guarantee people an unforgettable experience in a great competition. We have some great local partnerships and we cannot speak highly enough of Liverpool Football Club and the Liverpool County FA and many other local supporters too who all play their part. When the chance arose to bring the Cup back to Anfield in 2013 we had no hesitation in seizing the opportunity.”

Soccer 11s Mens TeamGary Williams of Plymouth YMCA commented that this year’s competition “was a truly memorable experience that will live with me forever! The spirit of the tournament was great and the games were played in a good nature. The experience of playing at Anfield as a Liverpool fan was unforgettable and the access afforded to us by the club was unbelievable.”

Sentiments echoed by Andy Evans from Barclaycard, who said “We have loved competing in the UK Corporate Games since 1999 and when the World Corporate Cup of Soccer was launched, with a chance to play at ‘The Home of Football’ – Anfield, there was no question that we would be entering a team – being a Liverpool fan I saw it as a chance in a lifetime and for the Club to allow ‘us’ the general public to use all of the facilities is unbelievable”

“Sanlam is proud to be part of the first Corporate Games to be hosted in South Africa. It was a truly magnificent weekend with brutal competition and friendly camaraderie on and off the field. There is no doubt in our minds that this will grow to one of the big sporting events on the calendar for Cape Town and corporate social events in South Africa. We thank the organisers for all their arrangements at the various venues across the Peninsula  and congratulate them on delivering a very successful event!”

Stuart McConnell commented:

“We are extremely excited about our involvement in the Corporate Games 2013. Having the support of the Games as their charity allows us to provide Siyabulela Primary School in Langa with Tag Rugby equipment, training and exposure to sport through our Adopt a School programme.

There are a variety of sports to choose from with added sports from last year’s already fun filled list. Participants can select from dragon boat racing, karting, running, netball, soccer, mountain biking and lets not forget tag rugby to mention a few.

The Corporate Games have been receiving an enormous amount of support from influential corporate companies who participated in 2012, who are eager to gain even more from the event in 2013. With even more media, business and civic partners on board, the second edition of the Cape Town Corporate Games will without a doubt, be even bigger and better than the year before.

Find your balance with Planet Fitness!

Balance isn’t just something you need when you’re learning to ride a bike. It’s the harmony between body, mind and soul. Achieving balance is about living a life that’s filled with a little bit of this, and a little bit of that. Time and again we tend to eat too much, sleep too little, work too hard and laugh too seldom. We should try to find the harmony between stressing and stretching, squats and shots and burgers and bench presses.
