Since 2007, the Internet Football Association has run a veterans tournament as part of its annual WorldNET tournaments. The players may have grown old gracefully, but the Vets tournament still adheres to the IFA ethos: “Internet football is not just about winning. It’s about taking part and building bridges between rival sets of supporters“.
The Big Tam Vets 17 tournament will take place on the 15/16 July 2017 at the Nottingham University Riverside Sports and will see up to 16 teams of over-35s playing firstly in a group stage and then in a knockout tournament.
