After the great success of their debut sporting event last year, Investigo held their second charity five-a-side football tournament on Friday 24th June 2016 at London’s Lucozade Power League.
The event was highly anticipated with a friendly rivalry building between a handful of the top recruitment agencies within the industry. Hudson, Eames, Stott & May, Shooting Star Chase, Keller Green, Michael Page, SR Group, Morgan McKinley, Robert Half, EMR, Indeed and, of course, Investigo all competed in the highly competitive tournament. Kick-off for the first round was at 6 pm and the teams enjoyed 3 hours of excellent five-a-side football, including two penalty shoot-outs. EMR excelled throughout all the stages to go on to win the cup, defeating Investigo 2-1 in a high-energy final. Players went on to enjoy a post-match BBQ and beer.
This year, all profits went to Shooting Star Chase, a hospice for children with life-limiting conditions. The tournament helped raise over £8,000 and is just one of a long list of events that Investigo hold throughout the course of the year to help raise money for their chosen charity.
Well done to all the players and thank you to everyone who came along to support.
Training has already begun for next year’s tournament in the Investigo football camp.
