deltatre 2015 Charity Football Tournament

by Press Office

deltatre held its 5th Annual Sports Industry Charity Football Tournament this week in aid of the UK based charity Weir Archer Academy, raising nearly £1500… and more than a few heart rates!

deltatre was delighted to have six times Paralympian Champion David Weir with his long term coach Jenny Archer – and other Weir Archer athletes – join us on the night.

The 5-a-side tournament, supported by many of deltatre’s clients and partners, saw teams turn out from The Premier League, Premier League Productions, Sky Sports, European Tour, The RFU, Sunset & Vine, IMG and Sport Business this year.

Premier League Productions finished in bronze spot; Sunset+Vine took the silver, with IMG bringing home the trophy.

After the event we heard from David Weir speaking passionately about the reasons they launched Academy back in 2013 – to increase participation in disability sport and nurture the next generation of Paralympians through investing in training, equipment and coaching – and about his Paralympic success.

Chris Catling, Head of deltatre UK said: “This is just a great night. We are so grateful to our clients and partners for supporting us, and most importantly the Weir Archer Academy. What a great cause and one we are delighted to be able to make a contribution to. We wish David well for Rio 2016 and will be supporting him, and the other Paralympic athletes, all the way!”
