Following the record-breaking success of the F.A.Women's Cup Final sponsored by E.ON in May, female footballers and fans from all over the country will once again converge on Nottingham for the Victoria Trophy, the country's biggest one-day five-a-side football tournament for women and girls.
The tournament has been running for 26 years and provides the opportunity for teams in Under 10, Under 12, Under 14, Under 16 and Open Age competitions to vie for the chance to win a trophy.
The event is organised jointly by Nottingham City Council's Sports Development Team, Nottingham Forest Ladies FC and the Nottinghamshire Football Association.
Fay Glover, Vice Chairperson of Nottingham Forest Ladies FC and founding Tournament Organiser, said: "It's a huge task, but very rewarding as clubs from throughout the UK will be attending. It is rewarding for a club such as ours to give something back to the footballing community for a wide spectrum of ages."
Arran Coggan, Tournament Organiser for Nottingham City Council adds: "The F.A.Women's Cup Final weekend showed that female football in Nottingham and the East Midlands is strong and vibrant. The Victoria Trophy is a great opportunity for local teams to compete against representatives from across the country and the tournament continues to enhance Nottingham's reputation of hosting nationally recognised sporting events."
Spectators are welcome to watch the action for free at the Victoria Embankment from 10.30am as teams play more than 600 games on 28 pitches. The finals are scheduled to start at 5.30pm, with the Open Age group final at 6.30pm.
