The RA Cup 2018
Resident Advisor and De School are back together again for our annual a charity four-a-side football tournament at this year's Amsterdam Dance Event.
The third edition of The RA Cup will go down on Thursday, October 18th, with 16 teams competing for the much-coveted trophy. A number of favourites will be returning, including RA, De School, Dekmantel, Clone, PIP Den Haag, Orchid, Zwart Goud, Red Light Radio, The Rest Is Noise, Atonal and last year's champions, Rush Hour. They'll be joined by several new teams, including Dutch club Garage Noord, Tbilisi's Bassiani, UK house and techno label Hypercolour, world-renowned promoters El Row and an all-star team featuring DJs, agents and other industry figures.
As always, it is all for a good cause. This year all of the money raised will go to Mama Cash, the oldest international women's fund in the world. Established in the Netherlands in 1983, it gives grants to more than 130 forward-thinking initiatives led by women, adolescent girls, trans and intersex people fighting for their rights. Activists who tirelessly and fearlessly make their voices heard. Who criticise oppressive or restrictive norms and practices, and lobby for fair laws. Who demand their political and economic rights, and insist on bodily autonomy. They also collaborate with activists, allies and funders worldwide in special initiatives to fund feminist activism.
