“Cup Final Day”

Sat, Apr 16, 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

(view report)

Last Updated on April 12, 2022

“Blue United” vs. “White City”

Enjoy a great game of soccer in the style of a classic British cup final of the 1960’s.

This year the FA Cup Final takes place at Wembley Stadium in London on May 14 and the Scottish Cup Final follows a week later at Hampden Park in Glasgow, but here in The Villages we’ll be experiencing the thrill of a “Cup Final Day”, 1960’s style, a whole month earlier on April 16, 10 am – 2 pm.  Click here to view British Pathé archival footage of the 1961 Wembley final on YouTube.

The Brits ‘n’ US Club is collaborating with The Villages Senior Soccer group to bring you pre-game pageantry, community singing, an exhibition soccer match, awards ceremony and lunch (sandwiches, chips, cookies and beverage).

Bring your friends, folding chairs, drinks, and come prepared for a great show.
