BHP Become Business Fives Sheffield Champions
Business Fives returned to Sheffield on Wednesday 24th August. 23 teams came together to score 284 goals across 66 matches at the Goals venue. Teams from across the city were playing for donations for their chosen charity with hopes of becoming the Sheffield champions and claim a spot at the National Final in Leeds in October.
The teams raised over £1800 for charity and the top fundraiser prize was hotly contested. It was the team from Quidco who claimed the award having raised £350 for The Prince’s Trust.
On the pitch, it was the teams from BHP, Whittam Cox, Jaywing and LabLogic who made it to the Champions League semi finals. The team from Jaywing were edged out by Whittam Cox in a nail-biting penalty shootout before BHP were 2-1 winners in the other semi.
It was BHP who secured the £350 donation for their chosen charity, The Daniel Wilkinson Foundation , courtesy of another 2-1 win in the final. Guest speaker Michael Brown identified Emmanuel as the key man in the final and this scooped him the Player of the Match award.
Both teams secured their spots at a National Final, in Leeds, on Tuesday 18th October.
The player of the tournament award went to Zoe from Razor and Ben from Brown McLeod claimed top goalscorer with 18 goals!
The final qualifying spot and a £150 donation was at stake in the Europa League section as CMS, Enzygo, Quidco and PM Property Lawyers.
The Final proved to be a cagey affair but it was the CMS team who eventually claimed victory, in their superb pink kits, to become Europa League winners, earn a National Final qualifying spot and a £150 donation for PACES.
After the football, teams enjoyed a drinks reception and buffet and were treated to some brilliant stories from former Sheffield United, Leeds, Manchester City, Tottenham and Fulham midfielder, Michael Brown.
Business Fives will continue to head across the UK for the remainder of our 2022/23 Winter Season.
