The 2019 tournament
TechAide is organizing a soccer tournament in January 2019 for the benefit of Centraide of Greater Montreal. The Tech Community is getting people together for some festive indoor exercise. Fans of amateur soccer are welcome to take part in this friendly competition
For a great cause
In addition to spending a great afternoon with some of the most dynamic players in Montreal’s tech, startup, and venture capital community, everyone who attends the event will be contributing to a great cause. All proceeds from the tournament will go to Centraide of Greater Montreal to support their fight against poverty and social exclusion.
Teams of five players will go head-to-head in an indoor soccer tournament. Teams can have up to 7 substitutions with unlimited player combinations . Matches are played on a small field and are short, with two intermissions of 5 minutes.
The 16 teams in the tournament will be divided into 4 groups for an initial round robin of 3 matches.
The 2 teams that lead each group after the round robin will then go on to the quarterfinals. The winners of the quarterfinals will go on to the semifinals.
The winners of the semi-finals will play in the final. The losers of the semi-finals will play in a match to determine the 3rd-place winner.
The teams that don’t make it into the playoffs can keep playing to try and win the competition for most goals scored.
After the tournament, the winning teams will receive a tournament cup at a reception with food and beverages and sponsor information booths.
The tournament tickets are $100 for each player.
We will also be accepting donations (in addition to the tickets purchase for the tournament). Tax receipts will be provided for these contributions.
