The plan for the day...

The Fire Shield kicks off at 10am
on Sunday the 1st of September

Worried about getting knocked out in the first round?

Don’t worry, we’re running a runner’s up competition for the 16 teams knocked out of the running for the main trophy. You’ll play at least 2 games of football on the day.

Why are we doing this?

Being Leeds at heart, and Leeds Rhino’s fans a lot of us, we feel a personal connection to Rob Burrow’s charity, and have been moved by his best friend, Kevin Sinfield’s journey to raise over £8million to fight MND and provide for the families of those affected by the awful genetic condition.

But wait, there's more...

We’re holding a special presentation of the business that raises the most money. So if you pay for four subs, or if you just want to donate (or have a business donate on your behalf), we’ll award a special trophy at the end of the day to this business.

And you'll get the chance to play a one-off final 'Community Shield' against the winner of The Fire Shield for extra press and social media coverage.

Don't forget to note your company name in the donation.
