Challenge 52 – Official world record attempt

Between Friday July 27th And Sunday 29th July, Hampton Community Sports Association will be hosting an official Guinness world record attempt. Two teams of 8 representing Peterborough United and Reading will be attempting to set a new record for the longest ever 5 a side football match.

The teams met on a sweltering weekend last summer in Reading, when they played continuously for 42 hours, this year the aim is to add another 10 hours to the record! While playing the teams will be sponsored to raise money for us.

Anybody is welcome to come along and support over the weekend and we will also be looking for helpers over the weekend, to referee, keep score and make sure all of the rules and requirements of the attempt are adhered to.

If anybody is interested in helping please contact

The teams can be sponsored at
