Manchester co-working space, Work.Life, has announced a one-day five-a-side football tournament for businesses.

Continuing its focus on workplace wellbeing and connecting the community, Work.Life’s tournament will be open to businesses across the city and will be held at FIVES Soccer Centre (formerly Powerleague), Trafford, on Tuesday 16th July.

The event will be followed by an afterparty after the champions are crowned.

The tournament is being held in aid of The Lord Mayor of Manchester’s We Love MCR Charity. All proceeds raised will be donated to the charity in order to support young people and communities across Manchester.

Elliot Gold, co-founder of Work.Life, comments, “This five-a-side tournament brings together two of the things that Manchester is known for – community and football. We’ve already had huge interest from businesses wanting to enter teams, so if you want to get involved and have the  chance of winning the business equivalent to the Premier League, then enter a team and show us your skills.”

“Work.Life is all about community and work-happiness. We pride ourselves on our community-led approach, providing spaces that are welcoming, inviting and friendly, and this event is just a taster of the work-life we provide everyday for our members.”

In addition to ongoing networking socials, Work.Life’s packed events schedule includes wellbeing classes, beer & pizza nights as well as ‘lunch & learns’. It also holds ongoing open days and free hot desking trials, including to members of the North West Freelancer Network on MeetUp.

Businesses interested in entering a team to the Work.Life tournament on Tuesday 16 July should email
