KPMG hope for another beach party
KPMG are looking to retain their title when the second annual Corporate Wellness Beach Soccer Tournament is held on Saturday, August 11 at Horseshoe Bay.
The BFA will use the tournament to bring together players at all levels. It is hoped this year’s tournament will attract more teams and continue to build on the momentum and excitement from last year’s event.
“We are excited to have the second edition of the Corporate Beach Soccer Tournament,” Mark Wade, the BFA president, said. “Last year’s tournament was a great success and we are looking forward to it growing this year. The tournament combines elements that typify Bermuda and its people, pink sand beaches, football and the concept of a village raising our children. Once again, Big Brothers and Big Sisters will be the beneficiary of the proceeds.”
KPMG team are keen to put their title on the line.
“KPMG will have at least one team in the tournament this year after the great time we had last year, plus being champions in back to back years is always fun,” the firm said. “Having members of Big Brother Big Sisters on each team was probably the most enjoyable part of the entire day, and actually being able to meet the kids and play football with them was big.”
The BFA said: “The primary purpose is to promote beach football by providing an inclusive fun, family oriented and safe event, which provides families and fans with an alternative to regular football. In addition, as members of Fifa, we are promoting an endeavour that all member organisations are working to implement in their respective countries.”
Don Vickers, the assistant technical development director at the BFA, said: “All charities play a vital role in Bermuda and it is important that we can find ways to work together to support each other and people we serve.
“Therefore, the more teams, the more tents, the more we enhance the playing environment, the more we collectively help as a community.”
Registration is currently open to any team that would like to participate.
