The Armstrong chapter of Phi Mu will be hosting the Sir Fidel Cup, a soccer tournament open to the public this weekend.
“The Sir Fidel Cup is a philanthropy event to support the Phi Mu Foundation,” said Tarah Jane, Phi Mu’s Vice President of Committees. “Phi Mu Foundation is a non-profit organization that strives for the betterment of collegiate women and proceeds from the event will be used to help support this amazing group,” Jane explained.
The tournament consists of teams of three facing off against each other playing soccer, with anyone who wishes to participate being allowed to do so.
“There is a link on the Phi Mu Instagram and Facebook pages for whoever wants to sign up for teams and also donate,” Jane continued.
Admission for the event is free for spectators. It costs $15 to create a team of three and $5 to participate in the goalie shootout competition.
Phi Mu will be tabling throughout the week in front of the Student Union to promote the event and take sign-ups.
“It will be a great event to bring together the Armstrong students and the community in a sporting event that supports a great cause,” Jane finished.
To sign up, email firstname.lastname@example.org. The event will take place on Saturday, March 9 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the Armstrong Intramural Fields located near the Alumni Arena parking lot.
