All,

Thank you for entering the Flitwick Eagles FC Pre-Season Tournament, it’s a fantastic way to give your team a run out before the new season. We have teams travelling from a number of different counties and leagues, let’s hope that the weather and traffic will be kind to us and that you all come back again year on year. The email with the tournament pack will hopefully confirm all the details you need. However, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to email us at tournaments@flitwickeagles.org.

Please see links to file below that were sent out to all the managers of the teams that purchased tickets for the tournament.

 

The tournament online is here: https://fulltime.thefa.com/index.html?league=125156416. Please share these details with all your supporters so that they can follow online (plus please share the details below about parking and the temporary traffic lights !!)

There are separate tournaments on the 2nd & 3rd September. Please double check the day your team is playing. It’s the day on the name of the ticket you purchased.

If you are playing in the AM tournament then please try to register your team no later than 8:30am. First kick-offs for the AM tournament are at 09:00am.

If you are playing in the PM tournament then please try to register your team no later than 1:30pm. First kick-offs for the PM tournament are at 2:00pm.

NOTE : There is absolutely NO parking or dropping off at the Football Centre (except for Blue Badge Holders). Please instruct players / parents to go straight to Redborne College.

WARNING : There are currently road works on Steppingley Rd near the leisure centre in Flitwick; also more lights just beside the football centre where Aldi are building a new store, which will cause issues even for Blue Badge holders; more disruption at the A6 Clophill roundabout, so please ask all your attendees to check Google Maps and allow enough time to get there.

Please DO NOT drive to the football centre to park you will NOT be allowed in. This is for Blue Badge Holders, staff and organisers only.. Go straight to Redborne Upper School parking and follow the direction signs and/or the instructions of the Flitwick Eagles Car Parking Marshalls….

Redborne College Parking is a 5 to 10 minute walk away (players can be dropped off in the Drop Off Zone which is closer and walk across the footbridge to the Football Centre if running late). Please see the ‘FE Tournament Address-Directions-Information’ flyer for a map and more information about parking and tournament information.

Please advise drivers that they need to allow about 20 to 30 additional minutes to their journey time for parking up, plus another 10 minutes; to give players enough time to walk across to the Football Centre, to be ready for their  first match. It gets very busy all around Redborne Upper School for about an hour before kick-off times.

Please pass on the following additional important information to all your supports :

  1. There is a £2 admission fee per adult. If adults could please have exact change on the day, this will speed up entry for everyone, alternatively, there is a card machine but this does slow entry. Please inform your supporters, thank you.

  2. The tournament online is here: https://fulltime.thefa.com/index.html?league=125156416.

  3. No glass or bottles are permitted on site.

  5. STRICTLY NO DOGS (except  assistance dogs) are permitted on site. This is an FA rule.

  6. Flitwick Eagles FC supports the FA Respect campaign. Any player, official or supporter that does not abide by the FA Respect guidelines, will be asked to immediately leave the tournament and facility.

  7. First aid and toilet facilities are provided in the pavilion building.

  8. Changing rooms are not available.

  9. There will be a full range of food and hot and cold drinks (and Ice Cream) available to purchase over the weekend.

  10. An ‘Action Photographer’ should be in attendance at the tournament. If any player does not want to be photographed, please make this known to us at registration time.

  11. ** We cannot accept responsibility for any loss or injury sustained whilst on site.
