Fancy meeting Harry Redknapp, playing at the Emirates and winning free BT Sport for a year? Better sign up for the BT Sport Pub Cup.

BT Sport is launching a free football tournament for pub teams, as it celebrates grassroots football.

The tournament is open for anyone over the age of 18 who wants to represent you as a BT Sport pub. One nominated lead team member just needs to submit your team name and contact details on behalf of your pub. 

Sixteen qualifying teams will be chosen at random, full kit will be provided by BT Sport and the first matches will take place at the home of Queens Park Rangers, Loftus Road, on Wednesday, May 10 and Everton’s Goodison Park on Monday, May 15.

The Emirates, home of Arsenal, will then host the final on Tuesday, May 23, with a nail-biting 11-a-side match over a full 90 minutes.

BT Sport pundits, David James and John Hartson, will manage one team each with special guest Harry Redknapp on hand to present the trophy to the winning side.



Any team must ask you (the licensee) if they can represent the pub in the cup and the winning pub could win a year’s free BT Sport subscription and a £5,000 cash prize to spend on the business. 

Participants can be part of an existing pub team, an established football team or just a group of mates.

Bruce Cuthbert, director commercial customers, BT Sport, said: “I’m delighted to be launching the inaugural BT Sport Pub Cup.

"It’s great to give something back to our BT Sport customers with this free to enter football tournament, giving pub teams the chance to play at some fantastic football stadiums, be managed by former professional footballers and the chance to win silverware at the Emirates.”
