Football fans in Singapore can now stand a chance to play alongside English Premier League greats Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs when the football stars arrive in town next month. The 5-a-side tournament, named CF Cup 2017, will provide fans with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be on the same team as the two football stars.
The tournament is open to all amateur players and interested participants will have to form a team of eight players and register at www.cfcup.sg. Participating teams will play in qualifying rounds on 1 and 2 April. The finals on 8 April will then see the top two teams, captained by the two Manchester United legends, face-off against each other.
The CF Cup 2017 is part of the grand opening of Cafe Football and The Arena on 8 and 9 April. The Arena is Singapore’s latest lifestyle and family-oriented destination, offering a wide variety of sports and fitness facilities for all ages, including the Arena Football which consists of one 11-a-side pitch, two 7-a-side pitches and three 5-a-side pitches.
Aside from football pitches, The Arena also offers programmes such as Muay Thai, Aerial Yoga, Rock Climbing, Dance and Functional Fitness as alternatives to football.
The inclusion of a full-fledged restaurant Cafe Football Singapore in The Arena, which is owned by Rowsley Ltd jointly with Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs, was established in the UK and the Singapore outlet is the first franchise in Asia, completes the experience, allowing fitness enthusiasts of all ages to come together and enjoy a meal after a workout or two.
