This year's Construction Cup kicks off on September 7th!

The Construction Cup, one of the industry’s most popular charity tournaments, is coming up on Friday 7th September.

IBI is supporting Construction Youth Trust for the third year running with the event, which aims to connect industry professionals with volunteering opportunities and create social value.

Organised by global design and technology firm IBI Group, and supported by headline sponsors Obrascón, Huarte and Lain (OHL) UK, this year's Construction Cup is bigger than ever. 40 teams are ready to compete, in the hope of becoming the 2018 'super league' winners, and unite together to raise money for Construction Youth Trust.

IBI Event Organiser, Becki Murphy, said: "We are thrilled to see so many industry professionals have committed to playing in the Construction Cup. This year we are hoping to raise awareness of our new campaign #LetsBuildSocialValue, by asking teams to volunteer their time and expertise, and help young people beginning their career in construction. Enabling young people to visit live sites and experiencing real‐life workplaces, allows them to develop key industry knowledge and gain valuable experience.”

This year, the Construction Cup will return to the ever-popular Powerleague Shoreditch, with last year's champions Keller UK returning to defend their title.
