Our football tournament made a comeback in April 2016 under the name of Heart of Goal’d 2016. The five-a-side tournament was organized on 10th April 2016 at The Football Arena, Bangalore in order to raise funds for Sparky Football, as well as to buy shoes for underprivileged children across the city.
Sparky Football is a wonderful organisation founded by Tejas RK, with a mission to create football artists for the nation; for the pride, for the lost sportsmanship; by starting with the underprivileged kids. The organisation is dedicated to cultivating the spirit of sportsmanship within underprivileged children through football.
The tournament saw 15 teams participating in it! Sparky Football itself had its own team consisting of Tejas’ students. The event saw a large number of youngsters playing for various teams. We were amazed by the level of skill that all the teams brought to the field! The day was filled with the spirit of sportsmanship as well as some intense (pretend) fights.
After an intense, yet fun battle, the Ebenezer FC emerged the winners of the tournament, followed by JFC as the runners up!
A big thank you to our title sponsors – Identiti, and our venue partner – The Football Arena.
A big shoutout to all the teams and donors who participated in the event. The funds raised were donated to Sparky Football. As for the shoes, well, we’re just going to have to tell you what an amazing event that turned out to be soon…
For now, goodnight!
