The 5 a-side tournament/festival

Spanning a wide age range, our 5-a-side tournament caters to young football enthusiasts from the under-7 age group all the way through to the under-14s. This event is not just a competition; it’s a festival of football, celebrating the spirit of the game and the budding talent of our youth.

The Cougars Tournament boasts a rich and storied history. Its inception was thoughtfully timed to align with the festive and vibrant Buntingford Carnival, making it an integral part of the town’s annual festivities. Over the years, this synergy has only added to the charm and appeal of the event.

We are proud to host teams from various corners of the South East. These teams, each bringing their unique flair and spirit, converge at the tournament, making it a melting pot of diverse footballing styles and cultures. It’s not just about the competition; it’s about camaraderie, learning, and sharing experiences.

The venue for this grand event is none other than the Club’s esteemed football facility, The Bury. Known for its impeccable grounds and welcoming atmosphere, The Bury provides the perfect backdrop for a day filled with thrilling matches, cheering crowds, and unforgettable memories.

So, whether you’re a player, a coach, or a spectator, come and be a part of this grand football fiesta. Experience the passion, the excitement, and the spirit of the beautiful game at its purest.
