If you fancy yourself as a bit of a part-time Aguero or you and your pals are somewhat of a dream-team on the football pitch, you can now sign up to compete in the FA People’s Cup 2017. This is your opportunity to battle for ultimate glory, lift that silverware and even attend the Emirates FA Cup final. Or perhaps… just have a good bit of footballing fun with your friends!

The format of the competition is 5-aside and will give you the opportunity to try out the brand new Sports and Fitness Centre 3G pitch. Entry is free, open to both males and females and you can sign up as part of a team or as a wildcard individual before Sunday 19 February. Don’t worry about skill level, so long as you simply have a love of playing football there’ll be a place for you in the People’s Cup.

Once registrations are completed the competition will take place over three rounds: the first round on Wednesday 22 February, the semi-finals in late March and the finals in late April.

This will be the third full season of the FA People’s Cup, with 2015 and 2016 each seeing over 30,000 players across England competing for their chance to head to Wembley for the FA Cup final. In 2017 we’re hoping that the sporting talent of Hull can add to the previous success of the cup, so make sure you’ve got your name on the team-sheet and head down to the first round in February for a very real opportunity of tasting cup glory!
