The closing date for expressions of interest/entry is Sunday 24 March, following which the format of the event will be announced. There will be group stages before the leading teams then progress into a knock out phase to determine the winner. Every participating team will be guaranteed a minimum of one hour playing time during the group stages.

The entry fee of £40 is payable on the day and the event is six a side with a maximum squad size of ten players. All players will be asked to bring official photo id to validate their age. FA rules will be applied.

For the winning team who then qualify to represent England, a kit will be provided but the team will be responsible for organising their own accommodation arrangements over the weekend in London although guidance will be provided on good local hotels where it is hoped a discount can be negotiated.
