PP5’s event returns for December pitch battles

Up to 16 teams will compete in the second edition of the PP5’s futsal tournament, which will be held on December 7 at KB Sports Field, organisers announced yesterday.

“This year is going to be bigger and better. Hopefully, we have some teams from the region joining us to play,” said Jimmy Campbell of Excel Events, who organise the annual competition.

All the outside pitches of the complex will be used for games, with the covered pitches set aside for warm ups, relaxation areas, a bouncy castle for kids and massages.

Entry fees are $300 per team, which are allowed a maximum of 10 players each, and includes pitch fees, food and drink.

Winners and runners-up will receive medals and a trophy, with third place finishers getting medals. There will also be awards for the winners and beaten finalists of the Community Cup, the second-tier competition.
