The kick off of the 2017 McConnell Intersport Mid Ulster Street League was announced by Mid Ulster District Council this week as the eagerly anticipated annual tournament is now open for registration.
This year sees a change to the previous Street League format, as in addition to the usual Street League fixtures open to teams of non-registered/recreational football players, a new ‘Super League’ will take place, allowing existing football players to enter in their own division.
The tournament, sponsored by McConnell’s Intersport, Cookstown, runs from Saturday 15th July until Wednesday 9th August 2017, with all group games played within the Mid Ulster District Council area, including sites in Cookstown, Dungannon and Magherafelt.
The Semi Finals and Finals will be played at Mid Ulster Sport Arena, Cookstown. All games will have a 7.30pm kick off Monday to Friday and a 2.30pm kick off on Saturdays, with the fixture calendar being announced at Mid Ulster Sports Arena on Tuesday 20th June at 7pm.
This year the number of teams is strictly limited to just 16 and places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Forms can be downloaded from www.midulstercouncil.org/streetleague or picked up from any Council sports facility, and should be filled in and returned along with your entrance fee of £90 to Mid Ulster Sports Arena, 47 Tullywiggan Road, Cookstown, Tyrone, BT80 8BE. Cheques should be made payable to Mid Ulster District Council. The deadline for the receipt of completed entry forms is Friday 9th June at 4pm.
