Teams from across the travel industry will be taking part, including those from Travelport and STA Travel.

Andy Mills from Dolphin Dynamics said: "We are delighted to continue supporting Just a Drop's wonderful work to deliver safe, clean water where it is needed most. We're expecting goals-a-plenty and lots of fundraising to support this great cause."

Louise Geoghegan, Events Manager at Just a Drop said: "We are very grateful to Dolphin Dynamics for their continued support and a football tournament is a great way to bring our friends and supporters in the travel industry together. Here's to a fun day on the pitch!"

About Just a Drop - www.justadrop.org

Launched in 1998, Just a Drop is an international water-aid charity with a very simple plan: to give people clean, safe water and to reduce the number of children dying as a result of water-related diseases.

Working with local partners, at a grassroots level, we provide clean water and sanitation facilities to some of the poorest communities around the world through the construction of hand-dug and borehole wells, pipelines, hand pumps and latrines and we establish health and sanitation programmes.

We operate with a handful (5) of staff and an army of volunteers, many of whom are retired military officers and water engineers with extensive experience on global water development projects.

To date, we have carried out over 130 projects across 31 countries, reaching an estimated 1.5 million people from Afghanistan to Zambia.

Fast Water Facts:

A child dies around every 20 seconds as a result of a water related illness.

Over 768 million people in the world do not have access to clean, safe water.

More people in the world own mobile phones than have access to a toilet.
