A squad of 16 BISP footballers recently competed in the U15 Nike Premier Cup held in Bangkok from 29-31 May.

The BISP squad, largely composed of Year 9 players, encountered some intense competition over the three-day tournament, playing matches against some of Thailand’s best Premier League club sides. The young BISP side took home some valuable experience after two losses and a draw against Buriram United F.C, TRUE Bangkok United F.C, and Nongbua Pitchaya in the group stages of the tournament.

The Nike-sponsored event is one of the biggest football tournaments of the year for U15 Premier League club sides. Sixteen teams participated, with Buriram United F.C taking home the tournament trophy.

BISP Cruzeiro Football Academy Heach Coach, Jonathas Candido, said the BISP players showed composure and character throughout the tournament.

“The boys performed well considering the standard of the clubs that took part. We did well to play our style of game amidst some tough competition. Overall, it was an amazing experience for our young athletes.”
