3rd IFG Charity Futsal Tournament
A chilly November evening was the backdrop for the 3rd IFG Charity Futsal Cup at Miyamoto Futsal Park in Hibiya City. In spite of the challenging conditions, a good turnout of players, bench-warmers and vociferous supporters created a great atmosphere for the event.
Eight teams entered the competition and after 3 hours of scintillating football wizardry, Wahl & Case contested the final against Nomura Securities. A suitably competitive final was edged by Wahl & Case who lifted the cup for the first time. In the plate final, Conrad Hotel got the better of Boyd & Moore to wild scenes of celebration from their travelling support. Well done to all the teams that competed.
Special thanks to The Town Cryer pub who hosted the after-match celebrations and to everyone who supported our fund-raising raffle. This year we are supporting OGA for Aid, a registered NPO who are doing fantastic work with the Tohoku communities affected by the Tsunami. All proceeds of the event went to the charity and we were delighted to raise a sum of 268,800 Yen for their work. Here’s looking forward to the next one!
