Business Sixes Cup

This annual fun-filled event waves goodbye to traditional team building.

The annual Kent FA Business Sixes Cup is a business-to-business 6-a-side football tournament that sees teams from companies across the county compete in a spirited and competitive competition. To date, 28 teams from businesses across Kent have taken part. This event brings light-hearted competitiveness sparked by a shared passion for football and the chance to engage with peers beyond the boardroom.

But don't just take our word for it!

Mike Newton, Director at The Merit Group who sponsored the 2023 event, commented: "This was my first time on the pitch for a Business Sixes event, and I have to say I loved it. It was another fantastic Business Sixes hosted by Kent FA, with some great companies from across Kent competing. Merit was delighted to be able to sponsor the event. Teamwork and a strong work ethic are two of our key principles, and they're also two things you need when competing in sports. It was a great day, and we look forward to next year."

Billy Radford, University of Kent, added:. "At the University, we hold a weekly social staff football session. The Kent FA Business Sixes was the perfect opportunity to provide those staff members with a competitive outlet in a relaxed setting whilst networking with university colleagues and businesses across Kent. The team loved the competition and are eagerly awaiting the date of the next one!"
