Setanta Sports and the Field House at Chelsea Piers will be hosting the first annual "Setanta Cup" to celebrate Sentanta's roll-out into the New York area. The all-day soccer festival will feature tournaments for youth (U-10 to U-14) and adult teams, with proceeds from team registration fees, merchandise sales and raffles going to the nonprofit organization, Hollywood Unites for Haiti and the Chelsea Piers Scholarship Fund.

The indoor tournament will take place on April 11th, and coincides with the recent launch of Setanta on WorldDirect, Verizon FiOS TV, AT&T U-verse and RCN in the tri-state area, complementing the availability of the channel via DIRECTV and DISH.

Games will run 15 minutes and the "Setanta Cup" and individual prizes will be awarded to the winning team in each division. In addition, there will be complimentary youth soccer clinics throughout the day, and JetBlue Airways will sponsor special exhibition matches in the afternoon featuring the Hollywood United Football Club, a star-studded, world famous soccer club.

Hollywood United's lineup includes Anthony LaPaglia ("Without a Trace"), Brandon Routh ("Superman"), Jimmy Jean-Louis ("Heroes"), Steve Jones ("Sex Pistols"), Youri Djorkaeff and Frank LeBoeuf (Former French Players and 1998 FIFA World Cup Winners), Gilles Marini ("Sex and the City"), Ethan Zohn (Co-founder Grassroot Soccer and "Survivor Africa" Winner), Costas Mandylor ("Saw"), Donal Logue ("Life"), Richard Gough (Glasgow Rangers, Scottish International), and Marc Consuelos (World Renown Actor), plus many more yet to be announced.

During the day, prizes will be raffled and commemorative merchandise will be for sale, with proceeds going to Hollywood Unites For Haiti (HUFH). HUFH, www.hufh.org, is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote sports and cultural activities for the underprivileged youth of Haiti.

Additionally, a portion of team entrance fees will be donated to the Chelsea Piers Scholarship Fund, a 501(c)(3) charity committed to providing New York City children in need with the opportunity to experience the enormous benefits and enjoyment of participation in athletics.
