Moors take on blues in the Arthur Cup

Ryan Smith 12th Jul, 2022

SOLIHULL Moors will be hosting Championship side Birmingham City on Tuesday, July 19 for the Arthur Cup.

The game will kick off at 7pm and will be in memory of Solihull youngster Arthur Labinjo-Hughes.

The match will be the main event in a community evening featuring plenty of family-friendly activities in and around the ground.

A third of the ticket revenue will be donated to charities including the NSPCC for the work they do with at-risk children in Birmingham.

The Blues beat the Moors 3-1 the last time Solihull hosted them ahead of the 2016/17 season.

Fans will be able to buy a commemorative match programme and it is hoped this will become an annual fixture to help local charities.

Solihull Moors chairman, Darryl Eales, said: “It’s a great privilege for Solihull Moors to host the inaugural fixture with Birmingham City for The Arthur Cup.

“Moors is a community club at heart, and I think this fixture exemplifies the positive and unifying benefit of sport, and football in particular, and the huge heart that all Midlanders share.

“I hope Midlands football fans and many local people turn out for a celebration of community at its best.”

Tickets will cost £12 each with over 65’s and under 18’s getting in for £6.
