The Father Christmas Cup is an annual charity soccer tournament raising money for local families who have recently lost a parent.
The Father Christmas Cup originated from the ideas of the 1914 WWI Christmas truce where German and English soldiers stopped fighting and played a soccer match in the middle of no man’s land. The Father Christmas Cup uses as its fundamental basis this powerful depiction of hope for peace and civility and regard for one’s fellow man.
The 2017 Father Christmas Cup will be held on Saturday, December 16, 2017, at the Atlanta Silverbacks Park. We are looking forward to a great day of remembrance, camaraderie, and support. We have adult and youth teams playing soccer. We also have many great raffle prizes for both kids and adults. Come out and support the families. Check this site often for updated information. Thank you for your support.
