Game of the season – CPL Training vs. CPL Online

Tuesday, 19 April 2016

The Merseyside Derby, El Clásico, the Old Firm – we all know the world's biggest footballing rivalries, but until now, there’s one that’s slipped under the radar. The most anticipated game of the season is set to be hosted by CPL Training Group, the UK’s leading provider of hospitality training. The company’s two divisions, CPL Training and CPL Online, will go head to head in a football match in aid of The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity.

Home of Tranmere Rovers FC, the 16,500-seater stadium – Prenton Park has been announced as the venue to hold this spectacle on Saturday 14th May 2016. As a ticketed event – charged at £5 per person, all proceeds will be donated to The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity to improve patient experience, fund research, and develop the latest treatments and innovations in cancer treatment. The event is open to all friends and family and anyone interested in raising money for a vital and outstanding cause.

The match is a tale of two teams, one rivalry – reminiscent of Liverpool vs. Everton, but instead of being divided by Stanley Park - it’s Tower Road in Birkenhead. CPL Training is expected to field a strong outfit and will look for inspiration from Captain and event organiser, Kurt Roberts. With a larger pool of players at their disposal, CPL Online also has an impressive line-up, with Captain, Andy Rannard dubbed as their star player. As the company’s first charity football event, it’s likely to be an evenly matched game at Prenton Park.

CPL’s nominated charity, The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity is one of the largest networked cancer centres in the UK, offering pioneering chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and proton therapy treatments. According to Cancer Research UK, 1 in 2 people born after 1960 will be diagnosed with some form of cancer during their lifetime. As a Wirral-based organisation, Clatterbridge is close to many of our hearts at CPL, and we know first-hand about the life-saving treatments and support this charity provides in difficult times.

Tickets are available to pre-order by contacting the CPL events team: Tickets will also be available on match day at the Main Stand turnstiles. The gates open at 11:15 am, with the match kicking off at 11:45 am.

If you are unable to attend the event, please feel free to make a donation on CPL Training Group’s JustGiving page: You can also text ‘CPLG66’ to 70070 for your £5 donation.
