It was almost a clean sweep for our British International School, Phuket (BISP) Cruzeiro Football Academy teams at the Bangkok International Youth Football Festival, with all five teams reaching the finals and four securing tournament trophies.

Football Academy teams from around South East Asia took part in the event, organised by the Bangkok Soccer League (BSL).

BISP were victorious in the U9, U13, U16 and U19 Boys’ divisions. At the final whistle in the tournament decider, the BISP U14 side were tied 0-0 with Bohemian S.C, Philippines, but lost the game in overtime, 1-0. The narrow loss comes after their triumphant weekend at the PSS event held from 9-10 March in Phuket.

BISP Cruzeiro Football Academy Head Coach, Jonathas Candido, says: “All our players showed great focus and determination to not only reach the finals, but to finish as champions.

“The strength of the opposition really forced our boys to play their best. Well done to all our teams and thank you to the parents who supported us over the weekend.”
