Supported by Scottish Construction Now, Scottish Housing News and the Scottish Property Federation the heats will run on January 23 and 30 in Edinburgh and Glasgow respectively.
Business Fives, the five-a-side contest for football-loving firms, is now entering its fourth season as the winter season takes in four Scottish cities for the first time – Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Dundee – with teams competing for a place in the grand final in Glasgow on March 14.
Building on its year-on-year success since launching in 2016, Business Fives has worked with more than 300 firms and raised over £30,000 for charities.
Like the summer season, tournament organisers have committed to donating 10% of all its revenue to charity with the winning team securing a bumper donation for their charity of choice.
Business Fives boasts some famous ex-players and sporting celebrities as ambassadors including footballer turned businessman Lee Mair, ex-Celtic star Andy Walker, Rangers legend Ally Dawson, Hearts legend Gary Mackay, BBC Pundit Tam McManus along with TV presenter David Tanner.
Tournament founder and Business Fives managing director, John McClarey, – who also organised a highly-successful inaugural Business Fours golf tournament earlier in the year – said it’s a great opportunity for businesses to bond with colleagues outside of the office, get fit and raise money for charity.
