Following the enormous success of the 2022 tournament, we’re delighted to announce that Screaming Frog & BrightonSEO are once hosting a charity five-a-side football tournament on Thursday 13th July in London!
Last year’s tournament raised almost £4,000 for a number of very worthwhile charitable causes, and was a thoroughly enjoyable day had by all. Relieve some of the magic –
Not only was the event a great day out and a chance for the SEO industry to socialise over more than just hreflang, raising money for charity is something we take very seriously internally. Hence, it was a no brainer to agree to hosting the event once again, with the help of our good friends at BrightonSEO.
The key bits of info for the Screaming Frog & BrightonSEO charity 5-a-side tournament are –
