The summer edition of Rock the Pitch is back!
Registration will open in June, so start assembling your team now! This year’s event is going to hit the field on Sunday, August 30th, 2015 at Toronto’s Crescent School. And, if you don’t already know, Rock the Pitch is not your usual footy fundraiser.
For starters, the proceeds of the event go directly towards our youth academy and scholarship program here in northern Uganda.
Rock the Pitch is a 5v5 soccer tourney that offers players at every level a chance to give back, and go toe-to-toe on the pitch with a collection of music, media and sport celebrities. The top fundraising teams can earn some great prizes, and a chance to kick-off against our celebrity teams. So, this is not just a charity exhibition game. It’s an interactive, fun footy day for all!
Past participants have included actor Michael Cera, Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo, footy stars Jason deVos & Kara Lang, members of Broken Social Scene, Bedouin Soundclash and Great Big Sea, and our footy media champions Kristian Jack (TSN) & James Sharman (Sportsnet) — just to name a few.
Get Sunday, August 30th, 2015 in your calendar to Rock the Pitch!
