Agencies across the North are being invited to sign up for the Creative Cup 2014, the charity football competition.

The event, back for the fifth time in four years, will be held at the Powerleague in Ardwick, Manchester, on Sunday October 5.

Sponsors UKFast are defending champions, having pipped McCann Manchester to the title with the likes of The Lad Bible, Code Computerlove and BBC North also taking part last year.

A total of £8,500 has been raised by the event, with all proceeds this year going to Forever Manchester.

Founder and freelance digital designer Ian James Cox said: “The Creative Cup is an event that brings our area’s agencies together for a day of fun. It’s away from the meeting rooms and award ceremonies. It’s a chance for everyone to kick back with a beer and a football.

“But what’s most important for me is that we’re raising money for great causes too. Every single person at the Creative Cup, whether they’re playing or watching, has a great time.”
