The Salthill 5-a-side will kick-off its 40th event on Saturday the 4th and Sunday the 5th of June this year, so sign a team up today.

It is played across three events; the main competition (€125), over 35s (€85) and Women’s (€55) competitions. With teams restricted to 100 teams in the main competition if you think you have what it takes to last two days of knockout football sign up for what will be an incredible weekend.

The knockout format means that your team will need to keep its eye on the ball (literally) to avoid being knocked out of the competition within 10 minutes. Don’t worry, for all those Liverpool type teams out there, there is a plate to play for.

Competitions are played on three pitches and while in the past League of Ireland players made an appearance, that was before summer football came into play. Now there is a chance you could be pitted against the next zippy winger in the league with some U19s making a bow. Current Galway players Colm Horgan and Alex Byrne showed off their silky skills before when winning the competition, so if you think you have what it takes, get ready for a cracking weekend in Galway.

Entries close Tuesday 31st of May and with underage tournaments for U11s, U13s and U15s it is a great opportunity to make a weekend, family trip of it.

Only one team has retained the prestigious trophy so if you fancy yourself as a Leicester City, get involved.
