“If Carlsberg did tournaments, they’d probably be the best in the world”.

From September 10th to September 17th, nationally we saw one of the best tournaments in 5-a-side, excusing the motto from Carlsberg.

Over the 43 clubs that hosted the event, we saw 400 teams battle it out to be crowned champions and win tickets to go see England v Slovenia in the World Cup Qualifiers at Wembley. Not only were Carlsberg providing tickets, the winners travel and hotel for 6 team mates was also included.

After a game that had everything you could expect in a 5-a-side game, they were victorious and were drawn early Monday morning: The weekend after the event.
From the photos we have seen, the team mates had a brilliant day and night seeing their club and country fight to secure a place in the World Cup. Below are a few of the pictures that were taken;
