Raiders Summer Tournament 2024
8 June @ 8:00 am - 9 June @ 5:00 pm
UPDATE 7th Feb 2024
Due to high demand our Boys age groups on Sunday 9th June have now mostly sold out. We have therefore added additional capacity on Saturday PM for U9 and U11 Boys teams competitions. These will be run as separate competitions from the Girls tournaments and are using spare capacity within the facility.
We are delighted to announce that our 2024 Berkhamsted Raiders Summer Football Tournament, will be held on Saturday 8th June (GIRLS AND BOYS) and Sunday 9th June (BOYS) at Ashlyns School, Chesham Road, Berkhamsted HP4 3AH. (HP4 3AE if using Satnav)
Each year, we typically have around 160 to 200 teams competing in this event each day, with around 5,000 specatators across the weekend. Refreshments and entertainment will be available throughout the day including a BBQ, sweet/cake stalls, games and more.
The team sizes per game will vary depending on age group:
- U7-U8 will be a 5v5 Fair Play Festival in groups, with a medal for every player.
- U9-U12 will be a 6v6 league and knock-out format.
- U13-U15 will be a 9v9 league and knock-out format.
All entries and payments will be managed through Ticket Tailor. The entry cost is £50 per team. The registration links for the Saturday and Sunday tournaments are:

- BOYS – Sun 9th June – https://buytickets.at/berkhamstedraiderscfc/1092748
To create a fun and competitive experience for all the teams, we aim to run two competitions, a Cup and a Plate, from U9s age groups onwards. This allows us to better match the differing standards of teams and has provided a much more competitive and enjoyable experience for everyone in previous years.
When registering your team via Ticket Tailor, please state the league and division your team plays in so we can do our best to place your team into the right competition. We reserve the right to decline an entry if we do not have enough places in the relevant Cup or Plate tournament, based on your league and division, and will advise you as soon as possible if this is the case. To ensure an enjoyable experience for all the teams taking part, this tournament is not open to teams playing in EJA, JPL or Academy level leagues. Please note: Only FA affiliated teams will be eligible to enter the tournament.
The cost to enter is £50 per team. If the tournament is cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control, refunds will be made, less a handling fee of £5 per team.
We advise booking as early as possible, as in previous years most age groups have filled up quickly. There is a limit of a maximum of 2 teams per age group per club. We do not restrict squad sizes but we ask you to bring an appropriate number of players for the age group team size.
Final confirmation of full details and tournament rules will be emailed to all accepted teams at the beginning of June.

Please pass this information on to all relevant managers in your football club to ensure that they have an opportunity to register for what will again be a first-class tournament. If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
