The Surveyors World Cup is only six weeks away.

The World Cup will be taking place in Romford as well as Russia this year! On June 22nd 35 teams of Surveyors from the Construction Industry will merge on the Play Football Arena Romford to see who will become World Cup Winners.

This will be the fourth year 'The Suveyors Cup' has been held with this World Cup version. The tournament is organised by The Downwell Group who provide Demolition, Enabling, Scaffolding, Land Remediation, Asbestos Surveying and Removal Services to a wide range of clients from the Construction Industry. The first event had 12 teams competing so the event is really growing and becoming very popular within the Industry.

The tournament is raising money for 'The Free Kicks Foundation' ( Peterborough based charity who raise money to give deserving children a football experience. This can be as a mascot at their favourite club or simply just going to a match which for some of the children can be difficult due to disabilities. All competing teams have been asked if they would make a donation to this fantastic charity.

Alvin Martin, Ex West Ham Captain who lives in Romford will be the host on the day. There will be a raffle and an auction to raise money for the Charity. Last year we were able to raise over £2000 for the Jonjo Heureman Fund for Nanny and Bobby.

Unlike the World Cup in Russia there will be 35 teams taking part. Each company will be playing as a Country. We have added the home nations countries of Scotland, Wales and The Republic of Ireland. Essentially all competing teams will be going into the same group matches as the World Cup. The draw to see what countries each company will be playing as was carried out by Alan Knight, Business Development Manager of The Downwell Group.( Some of the Companies taking part include: Keir, Willmott Dixon, Galliard Homes, Ashe Construction, Gleeds, GVA, Stace LLP, Mount Anvil, Gardiner and Theobald and Edward Cooper Young Surveyors. With the amount of interest received Downwell could have doubled the amount of teams taking part.

There will also be two student photographers from Havering College attending and using the tournament to gain valuable event experience and help build their portfolios.

With a post match BBQ it is looking to be a great day of football. Who will be crowned World Cup Champions?
