Annual CIFE Football Tournament - St Georges Park

Birmingham A45

MPW Birmingham participated in the second CIFE football tournament which was held at the prestigious Saint George’s Park – the official training venue for England’s national football team.

14 teams participated in the tournament with colleges coming from around the country.  As you would expect of a centre run by the Football Association, the facilities were excellent.

Congratulations to MPW London who won the tournament for the second year running beating DLD London 1-0 in the final and will retain the trophy for another year.

As for MPW Birmingham, despite being unbeaten in the group stages we were denied the chance to reach the semi-finals by goal difference.  The standard of play from all 14 teams was exceptionally high and in the majority of cases the teams could only be separated by one goal.  The behaviour and respect for their surroundings shown by the MPW Birmingham team was exceptional and we look forward to competing again in this tournament next year.
