UK Construction Week and Construction United are delighted to be hosting the very first UKCW/CU Football Cup at the NEC this October. The tournament will run for three days, with 3 daily winners, each who will win a UKCW/CU Football Cup, and will consist of league matches, followed by a Semi Final and then a Grand Final.
Whether you are a contractor or an architectural practice, building firm or service supplier, anyone involved in construction is encouraged to enter a team. This is a great opportunity to showcase you and your colleagues’ skills and also show what a diverse, sociable and exciting industry this is, as part at the UK’s largest construction event.
How to enter: You must enter a team of 7 players, with a mixture of men and women (teams with only one man or one women will not be eligible. We are promoting diversity remember!) You can choose which day you would like to play from the following: Tuesday 18th October; Wednesday 19th October; Thursday 20th October.
The tournament will run during the day between 12pm and 4pm. You will be contacted the week before to confirm your teams playing times.
- The pitch will be indoors, so trainers (not boots).

What is UK Construction Week?
UK Construction Week is the UK’s largest gathering of construction professionals coming together at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham between 18-20 October. The event celebrates this exciting and dynamic industry, and will be a place to network, debate, discover innovation and celebrate excellence. UK Construction Week is designed to ultimately drive forward and promote construction.
UK Construction Week has been created by close collaboration with partners and stakeholders, and will tackle some of the key issues facing the construction industry. Anyone in construction, whether Contractors, Clients, Architects, Manufacturers, SME’s, and Developers, has a shared interest in growing such a vital sector to the economy, and that can only happen through partnership, and by coming together, as we will do at UK Construction Week.
What is Construction United?
Construction United is a coalition made up of industry stakeholders including trade associations, contractors, charities and Government bodies alongside leading firms from the supply chain like SIG that have a vested interest in promoting everything that is great about the construction sector.
We aim to show support for those in the sector by ensuring that construction is presented in the best light, and work to ACTIVELY highlight some of the serious issues faced by those within the industry, through a week of events and fundraising activities from the 17th to the 23rd October 2016.
As more and more organisations come on-board throughout the year we hope to create a groundswell of awareness which will culminate with as many stakeholders as possible taking part in this exciting new annual week of events and activities.
