Reunion Weekend and Memorial 5-a-side Tournament: Loughborough Football
- Loughborough University
About this event
Since 2000, the Loughborough University Football Club and its alumni have held an annual 5-a-side tournament to raise money for charity, remember teammates who have passed away, and socialise and connect with friends.
The event was originally started in memory of 1997 graduate and former University footballer Eddie Gregg, who sadly passed away in 2000. The tournament, in memory of Eddie and other teammates, has raised around £50,000 to date.
This year's event takes place on the weekend of the 18-19 May. Alumni from the early 80s through to current students have entered teams to play. Older teams get extra players (over 35s +1; over 50s +2).
