[Event] Play for Nepal

As we all know that our Himalayan neighbor Nepal is going through tremendous distress and pain, perhaps toughest time they have ever been through. In this hour of such great agony Love for the Game has decided to stand up and lend support to our friends who need help.

With the sole objective of raising funds to be donated to for the aid of Nepal Earthquake victims, Love for the Game is organizing two back to back events in this month. 

The first one would be a duel between the Bangalore-based fan clubs of the eternal rivals McDowell Mohun Bagan AC and  Kingfisher East Bengal - the two fan club teams will lock horns on May 23, 2015 at Kicks on Grass for #thegamethatmatters and #PlayforPride! 

This will be followed up the very next week, May 31, 2015 same the same venue Kicks on Grass by the big one - Community Cup. 

Community Cup will feature the fan club teams and football communities housed in Bangalore, who will play a dawn-to-dusk tournament to raise funds for the Nepal Earthquake victims. This is much more than football, they will be playing for pride, they will be playing for humanity, and above all they will PLAY FOR NEPAL. 

There will be no restrictions on entry fee for both these events. The objective is to collect and donate as much as possible from all of us put together. Fan clubs and communities are requested the to collect as much as they can by themselves, Love for the Game would in turn hand over the entire sum of money to the Relief funds which have been set up.

Also, there are no cash prizes on offer for both these events as the entire collected money will be donated. The winner will definitely cherish the trophy which would be presented. 

Talks are on the final stages with the Relief Fund Organizations and NGOs ensuring to select whom to donate the money as every penny should be utilized for the right cause.

Both events will be streamed live on the internet via our Broadcast Partner BeamitLive -

Kicks on Grass already have been very generous to lend their support by becoming Venue Partners for these events. and are the Media Partners.

Love for the Game is looking out for few more sponsors and partners who want to stand up with them for this noble cause. 

Interested parties – individuals, fan clubs, communities, or teams who want to get associated with this event can get in touch. All the necessary information is available here - or visit the FaceBook page -
