Just four slots are left in the annual Marine Ad Agency (MAA) five-a-side football tournament.

The tournament takes place at the Southampton Boat Show on the evening of September 20 at Goals Soccer Centre, Millbrook and will again raise money for the Children's Intensive Care Unit (Friends of PICU) and G4 Surgery at Southampton General Hospital.

Last year £1,000 was raised for the causes with more than £5,000 raised since the tournament began six years’ ago.

“We started the tournament as a way of involving many of the people that actually put the show together,” explained MAA head Mike Shepherd.

“Stand and pontoon builders, security staff, workers behind the scenes all have the opportunity to play.”

The tournament has space for 16 teams, each of eight players.

Last year the MAA Cup was won by The Yacht Market who return to defend their title.

Other teams signed up to play in 2016 are Marine Ad Agency, British Marine, RS Sailing, Matchtech, PSP Logistics, Premier Marinas, Lewmar, Crewsaver & Marine Super Store, Southampton FC, PICU and SGH Theatres.

Entry fee is £120 per team plus £8 per meal ticket. Contact the MAA on 023 9252 2044 for more details.
