Raised for charity since our first pitch event in 2012!
Amex Community Stadium, Sunday 26th May 2019
Exactly 12 months to the day of our previous pitch day we made the short journey along the south coast to the home of Brighton & Hove Albion.
We had two games taking place on the day, with the first game seeing JB Architecture vs Daron Ford, with the Daron Ford side winning 6-2. Our second game saw SG Fleet vs League Edstreme, with a rather one sided affair as SG Fleet won 10-1.
We were raising money for Mancheck and the Alzheimer's Society, which was chosen by our players via our Facebook page.
As ever thank you to everyone who supported us and to those who bought positions and took part in the day, we couldn't do it without you!
King Power Stadium, Saturday 26th May 2018
Our sixth pitch day took us to the home of the Premier League champions from the 2015/16 season, Leicester City! We had our biggest day yet, with 3 full 90 minute games taking place.
Our first game saw SG Fleet UK lose out to the Boulter Mossman side 6-3. The second game was Ant Marketing vs Open IP, with the away side taking the win! Our 3rd game saw The Site Supply Company vs One2Create, with a close fought game seeing the away side take the victory 4-3.
We were raising money for ManCheck for the first time, who do early screening for prostate cancer. We are currently adding up the final total, so check back to see how much we raised soon!
Thank you to everyone who came along and supported on the day and to all of the organisations who got involved to support us.
We had some fantastic reviews of the event, which you can read on our Facebook page.
Fratton Park, Friday 19th May 2017
Our fifth fundraising day saw us return to Fratton Park for four hours under the lights! We had two games taking place on the night, the first game taking place between OTSO vs Larcomes LLP, which finished 8-1 to Larcomes and the second game was Portsmouth Historic Dockyard vs Boulter Mossman, with Boulter Mossman winning 9-6.
Our biggest fundraiser to date saw us raise over £7,500 for Cardiac Risk in the Young, over 100 spectators come along and support friends and family and a huge raffle which raised over £2,000 on its own.
As ever we are grateful for those who took part and came along to support, particularly Chris Salmon of SGFleet who arranged many of the fantastic raffle prizes.
Here is just some of the feedback after the event:-
"Well done lads. Another great turnout and great to be a part of 3rd time running." Christian Northway
"Was a fantastic evening was brilliant to be part of it... Roll on next year." Mike Spotswood
"Thank you everyone that organised it, had a brilliant Time and thank you for everyone who I played with and against :) ." Toron Kneller

Stadium MK, Saturday 14th May 2016:
Our fourth fund raising day arrived at the home of the MK Dons, StadiumMK in Milton Keynes. The facilities were superb and arguably the best we had encountered from all of our charity games. A UEFA Elite stadium, we held one 11-a-side game between our two teams, HASAG vs CRY with the proceeds going to CRY on the day.
Fortunately we ended up with a close game which swung back and forth with the HASAG side eventually victorious 5-4! A fantastic effort from all players involved and proceeds of over £1,069.28 which all go to CRY.
We were fortunate that a spectator could capture the final goal of the game being scored, hit play on the video to the right!
Also huge thanks to the staff at MK Dons who were very hospitable and help us put on a fantastic experience.
Madejski Stadium, Sunday 31st May 2015:
Our third Charity Pitch Day took place at the home of Reading Football Club, the Madejski Stadium!
We were again raising money for Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) and, through the support of our players, spectators and sponsors we raised £5724.60 for CRY.
We ran two 11-a-side games, with the first the architects derby, Holman Reading Partnership vs Helyer Davies Architects kicking off at 12.45pm and the second, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard vs HASAG kicking off at 3pm. View the programme here.
Both games were entertaining for fans and players alike, with the first game finishing 16-0 to Helyer Davies Architects and the second game finishing 9-0 to HASAG!
BBC South Today also came along and featured us on the evening news (video opposite).
Here is what players who took part on the day had to say:-
“Cracking effort guys, you made a dream come true for me. Well done Phil George and Sean Reading. Let me know if you need players for the next event, I'm in!!!!” Neil Feline

"Brilliant day well done guys, rest up now and get started on next year." Aidan Rowsell
Through our second charity pitch day, with help from our event sponsors Holman Reading Partnership and Helyer Davies Architects, we were able to bring Portsmouth Football Club fans the chance to grace Fratton Park.
We worked with Portsmouth Football Club for over a year in order to secure Fratton Park for two 11 a-side matches which members of the public could bid to take part in and the event raised over £3,500 for Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY).
Players who took part in this event all got a copy of their match on DVD along with pictures taken during the games (both shown on the right) and also got to keep the kits they wore on the day.

On 12th May 2013, League Edstreme hosted their first 11-a-side charity pitch day at Privett Park, the home of Gosport Borough FC. The two teams were made up of players from Edstreme United and Edstreme Athletic, two teams of players who play at League Edstreme and in the Portsmouth Sunday League.
