CUP26 is a tournament by Planet Super League with the support of Count Us In, encouraging football fans to take climate action. With approximately 3.5 billion football fans worldwide, CUP26 harnesses the global passion for the sport to fight climate change on an unprecedented scale.
In CUP26 fans score goals for their club by completing planet-protecting activities. Clubs face off in weekly fixtures, with the supporters holding the key to victory.
There are 100 goal-scoring activities on the website, including; having a delicious plant-based meal, cycling and walking, and having a screen-free evening. The Planet Super League trophy will be awarded to the tournament winner in the first week of COP26.
CUP26 is the biggest ever football fan campaign focused on climate change.
The tournament kicks off as the world builds up to COP26, The United Nations Climate Change Conference, with football clubs leveraging the passion of the fans, raising awareness, driving citizen climate action, and creating real momentum ahead of the climate conference.
CUP26 is supported by the UK Government’s campaign Together for Our Planet as well as media partner Sky. At a critical time for the planet it shows that everyday fans, families and the wider public care about climate change and are willing to do their part. But they want their leaders to do more too, and deliver solutions at COP26 that will prevent further climate change.
Tom Gribbin, CEO of Planet Super League said: CUP26 is our largest tournament, with over half the professional football clubs in the UK taking part. Fans of all ages can represent their club, do their bit for the planet and help compete for the trophy. We’re delighted to be working alongside Count Us In and we look forward to sharing exciting moments and surprises as the season unfolds.
Albion fans, schools and families can sign up for free on cup26.co.uk from today. The tournament kicks off on Monday 13 September. Albion face Wycombe Wanderers in our first CUP26 fixture!
