21.09.2016 | RA and De School are hosting a 5-a-side football tournament for charity at this year's Amsterdam Dance Event.
The first edition of The RA Cup will go down on Thursday, October 20th at Het Gymlokaal. Eight teams will compete for the trophy, with RA, De School, Dekmantel, Rush Hour, Numbers, 10,000 Hours among the confirmed. 100% of the money raised will go to Help Refugees, a grassroots organisation set up to help the most vulnerable people reaching Europe's shores by supporting local groups, charities and volunteers at the front lines. Unconstrained by red tape, politics and bureaucracy, they act fast to effect immediate change and work everywhere that governments and NGOs can't be.
Members of the public are invited to watch the drama unfold, with entry at €5 per person. (Numbers are limited.) As well as the football, there will be a record fair, performances from various DJs and table tennis and table football tables. Resident Advisor will be streaming the event live via their Facebook page. Kick-off is at 10:30 AM, with the semi-finals scheduled around 1:30 PM.
If you'd like to donate to Help Refugees, you can do so in one of two ways: head to RA's dedicated microsite or text "XXX" to "DIGITS."
