Manchester's digital agencies are getting ready to do battle once again as the Creative Cup football tournament returns for a third year.

Sixteen agencies will compete for the coveted cup, which has previously been won by Made by Shape and Gyro, when the tournament gets underway on 27 May.

The charity event, sponsored by Melbourne Server Hosting, has raised £3,800 for Marie Curie and St. Ann’s Hospice over the last two years.

This year organisers hope to net another £2,500 in aid of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

Creative Cup founder & freelance digital designer Ian James Cox said: "The cup is starting to gain a bit of a reputation now in its third year.

"In the weekly league format companies such as the BBC, Umbro & DesignByMusic are joining up and we’re expecting high demand for a place in the annual charity cup event. Hopefully the sun will shine for us as we smash the 6k barrier the project has raised so far.”

To sign up head on over to the Creative Cup website or email for more info.
