Show off your skills .... in the Cage

20 June 2014

Practice your skills in Bewbush and Ifield this weekend

Have you heard? There's a World Cup in Brazil. A month-long feast of great goals, comedy defending, preposterous play-acting and English disappointment is in full swing.

We’ve all got our favourite teams and players, opinions about who’s going to win - Brazil, Holland, Germany or Chile but how about putting some of this knowledge and opinion to good use and letting your feet do the talking! 

Crawley Town Community Sport Foundation and local youth work charity Street360 are working in partnership to deliver cage football in two local neighbourhoods during this month’s World Cup - starting this weekend. 

Street360’s cage will be set up in Dorsten Place, Bewbush and Dobbins Place, Ifield for three consecutive weeks starting on Friday 20th June in Bewbush and Saturday 21st June in Ifield between 7-9pm.

The Crawley Cage Project is a unique way to play 2v2 football matches with winner stays on format, remembering the heat factor. Matches are played over a period of three minutes and can be fast paced with lots of skill, much like the Brazilian and Portuguese style of play.  

Each site will have three visits from the Crawley Cage Project team providing a group stage feel to the event that will culminate in our own 2v2 World Cup final at the Stadium on Wednesday 23rd July.  The cage will be set up on the Astroturf pitch opposite Redz Bar from 6-7.30pm before our pre-season friendly against Brighton & Hove Albion. 

All registered participants from the project are invited to attend the World Cup event, and they will receive a free ticket to the game that evening with a presentation for the winners and runners up.
