This year's event will be held on Saturday, July 7, at the JJB Soccerdome at Pride Park, Derby, the UK's newest premiere indoor venue with eight pitches. FA referees will take charge of all Charity Challenge matches on the day. Following last year's tournament, when 19 competing teams raised £13,000 - enough money to put 20 disabled people on the road - the RAC is challenging the fleet industry to beat that effort in 2001.
The RAC is looking for teams of eight - five players and three substitutes - to pay an entry fee of £400, sell Charity Challenge raffle tickets and undertake other fundraising activities in a further boost to Motability funds. The Charity Challenge champions will walk off with a tournament trophy and tickets for eight people to enjoy a box and full hospitality at a British Motor Sports event at Donington Park, Silverstone - excluding the British Grand Prix - or Brands Hatch, sponsored by RAC Auto Windscreens.
The team raising the greatest sum through sales of raffle tickets and other means this year can choose from a range of weekend outdoor activity days, a prize donated by Kwik-Fit Fleet.
