The Mark Milsome Memorial Cup was back with a bang in May 2021! The match was organised by the team behind the Mark Milsome Foundation Cup (founder Andy Woodcock). With the help of industry sponsors he secured Selhurst Park, the home of his lifelong club Crystal Palace for a date that was close to Mark Milsome’s birthday, 23rd May, and they set about creating an event that honoured Mark in his ability to unite friends from across all departments and productions in the industry. Mark was not a sportsman, he did like to watch odd game of football, but was not an avid fan, however on May 29th, we brought together many colleagues, friends and family for a much needed day out, and an occasion that Mark would have relished.
The teams were from the crews of the new Indiana Jones film and Essex (production working title, Netflix series) Forming a squad from one production brings together players with very different experience levels, and this and allowing mixed sex teams brought a high level of inclusivity and set a friendly tone to the day, on the pitch and off.
The event was a great occasion with a final score of Indiana Jones 6 – Essex 3. All the proceeds made from the event went to the Mark Milsome Foundation.
Thank you to the @markmilsomememorialcup who have organised the event and made it possible.
“The Big Clash, it’s going to be huge! You don’t want to miss this battle between some of the industry’s finest filmmakers seeing if their creative and technical abilities translate to the football pitch.⠀
Expect incredible skills or highly dubious tactics on display or both, or neither, either way come along to finally meet friends and raise a glass to Mark Milsome. All proceeds to the Mark Milsome Foundation. Tickets on sale shortly.”
The event is taking place on May 29th in Selhurst Park. Purchase tickets here.
