The event, now in its third year, has doubled in size this year and teams from companies such as Gordon Ramsay Holdings, The Dorchester and Caprice Holdings are hoping to raise more than £21k for Springboard to help it promote careers in hospitality to young and disadvantaged people.

Seven-a-side teams will compete for four trophies over the course of the day with last year's winners the Lancaster Bees hoping to defend their champion title.

Organised by recruitment company PJ Search, the tournament will be held on Sunday 18 September at King's House Sports Ground, London, W4 2SH.

A number of attractions for competitors, their colleagues, families and friends will be held alongside the football competition, including a fun fair, climbing wall, quick massages and manicures, a barbecue and live music.

Tickets have been allocated to companies taking part with any extras charged at £1 per ticket. Hotels and restaurants without teams taking part on the day can attend by paying £330 for 33 tickets. Any extras are charged at £1 per ticket.
