The excitement is building for the first ever Develop Football Challenge, with companies signing up fast – and burgers and chips already banned for Develop’s very own team.

The five-a-side tournament takes place on Friday October 8th at Power League, Barnet. The Challenge will see up to 32 entrants from studios, outsourcers, service companies and the financial community compete in a professional tournament.

A flurry of teams – including Exient, Sumo Digital, Sports Interactive, Bright Light, Testology, Crytek, The Creative Assembly and Jagex – are already signed up to take on Develop United.

Interest is high and spaces limited, so contact to register your team. Or simply click here to register online.

Entry fee is £495 + VAT per squad of 10 players. All teams get to compete within high quality facilities inclusive of professional organisation, officials, trophies and refreshments.

There will be extensive media coverage of the event throughout Develop in print and online.

As well as bragging rights, a trophy, medals and PR, the winner of this year’s first ever Develop Football Challenge will gain free entry into the Top Corner Champions’ Cup 2011 – which features the top teams from a wide variety of UK industries.
