Jacksonville Jaguars Se7ens Cup – your chance to join!
You and your mates fancy your hand at taking on the nation at flag football? Want the chance to win tickets for the International Series games? Well we’ve been contacted by the Jacksonville Jaguars to let us know they will be offering American Football fans around the UK and Europe the opportunity to compete in the inaugural Jaguars Se7ens Cup which will be kicking off in London on October 8.
The seven-on-seven flag football tournament will host four regional heats for the South East, Midlands/Wales, North and Scotland before heading to Fulham FC’s Craven Cottage for the National Final on November 5. The winners of the National competition will receive tickets to the Jaguars next International Series game at Wembley Stadium in 2017.
The four regional competitions are set to take place as follows:
- South East Regional – London, Wimbledon Park on October 8th
- Scotland Regional – Edinburgh, University of Edinburgh’s Peffermill Fields on October 15th
- Midlands/Wales Regional – Birmingham, University of Birmingham’s Metchley Park on October 22nd
- North Regional – Manchester Metropolitan University’s Platt Lane on October 29th
- National Final – Craven Cottage on November 5th
The tournament is suitable for players aged 18 and older with any experience of American Football. You must enter as a team of 7-10 people though as there are no individual places, so time to start hounding your friends/colleagues to get their boots on! You can sign up for your team at www.jags-sevens-cup.com
Each regional tournament has space for 16 teams with an entry fee of £150 per team (that’s just £15 per person for a team of 10) and the entry price includes an exclusive Jaguars Se7ens T-shirt specially made for Jaguars Se7ens competitors. Each team is guaranteed to play at least four games during the tournament.
On top of that, all referees will be provided by the British American Football Association so the games will be officiated by the best the UK has to offer.
Along with the action on the field, the Jaguars will look to create a festival atmosphere at the events in order to bring the best of the NFL to both competitors and spectators. Free JagTag sessions will also be running throughout so come along to cheer on your friends and get involved.
Were us Gents both considerably younger and fitter, we’d be there already!
