With the battle for the most sought after trophy in world football well underway, what better way to embrace the spirit of the World Cup than a five-a-side football tournament.
Hosted by our friends at EMI/Sony Production Music, six teams battled it out for World Cup glory. A great contest saw the number of teams whittled down to two, with Mcasso’s ‘The Bootles’ going head to head with Platinum Rye’s powerful team in the grand finale. The result after an extremely competitive final saw The Bootles secure a 4-2 victory to win the coveted trophy. Platinum Rye had actually beaten Mcasso in the group stages but allowing the winners and runners up of the group to battle it out one more time gave The Bootles the opportunity to overturn the result in the final. It really was a wonderfully exciting, fierce final which could have gone either way.
A special thanks to all at EMI/Sony for organising the tournament and after party – a great atmosphere and fun day. We look forward to defending our title at the next one!
Come on you Bootles!
