Introduction to the Bankes Charity Cup Football Competition

The Bankes Charity Cup Football Competition, based in Dorset, dates back to 1889 and is open to clubs who are affiliated to the Dorset County FA or other County Associations.

We run leagues from Under 15s to Adults and all profits are donated to local charities.

In 2019 we celebrated our 130th Anniversary of the Bankes Charity Cup and we are delighted to announce that £1,400 has been donated to local charities from the 2018/2019 Season
