The tournament takes place on Friday July 9th at the Power League site in Barnet, North London (there are no World Cup games on that day). Around 24 teams are expected to compete, with £100 of every registration going to the Toy Trust.

Turner Broadcasting (pictured) was triumphant in last year's Cup competition, beating off strong challenges from Lego, Firebox and Mattel, with Grant and Bowman winning the Plate tournament. Some £1,600 was raised for the Toy Trust on the day.

It costs £575 to enter a squad for the event (up to a maximum of ten players), which includes a free gourmet barbecue. There is also a bar.

Anyone who thinks they have a team to beat the best footballing talent from across the toy and licensing industry (or just enjoy a day having a kickabout), should call 0207 700 1888 or log on to

Sponsorship opportunities are available. For more information contact Ronnie Dungan on 01992 535646 or email him on
