Reigning champions Projek Ikan Pusu (PIP) Under-19 Football Team proved that their win last year was no fluke when they emerged champions again at the Jerudong International School’s (JIS) Football Funday yesterday.
The team defeated Almerex FT 1-0 in an exciting and hard-fought final.
More than 100 teams comprising under-8, under-9, under-10, under-11, under-13, under-15, and under-19 years pupils and students from local schools and colleges competed in the five-a-side competitions (in eight different age group categories) on 19 pitches demarcated at the JIS Sports Complex in this increasingly popular annual football competition.
A special thoughtful feature of the tournament was that every participating competitor received a Certificate of Participation.
In addition, this year’s event also featured a Grassroots Football Promotion display by the National Football Association of Brunei Darussalam (NFABD) to denote the national body’s strong support of junior football development initiatives in the country.
