The Carlsberg Pub Cup is a nationwide five-a-side tournament that offers players of all standards the chance to play for their local pub at world renowned Emirates Stadium with the overall winning pub team flying to represent England and play a team of European legends under the management of former England international Southgate and watch England play the Swedes on June 15 in style at UEFA EURO 2012�.
Importantly, the Carlsberg Pub Cup is made of two tournaments – making it appealing for regular five-a-side teams and those who play for fun rather than competition.

Acts which may merit a Green Card will include, but are not limited to: sportsmanship, team spirit, fair play, overcoming the odds to play and bringing a great team of supporters.
Gareth Southgate said: “Ipswich with its football heritage needs to be represented at the finals and this is a great opportunity for players of any standard to get involved in this fantastic five-a-side competition. The Green Card tournament means all entrants, whatever their standards have the opportunity to reach the Grand Final at Emirates Stadium, so I urge everyone to take part - your pub really does need you!”
