Nexia BT’s 6th edition of the annual football tournament for lawyers and accountants

26.10.2015

Following the success registered in previous years, the popular and by now well established annual Nexia BT football tournament for legal and accountancy firms, was held on Sunday 25th October 2015 at the De La Salle College grounds in Cottonera.

The 6th edition tournament brought together some of the top legal and accounting firms in Malta including Alter Domus, ARQ Group, Deloitte, DF Advocates, Ernst & Young, Fenech & Fenech, GVTH Law, Mazars together with two teams each from RSM and Nexia BT itself.

On a lovely autumn day, twelve teams vied for the honours. They were split into two groups and the tournament was played on a round robin league format with the top placed two teams from each of the groups proceeding to the semi-finals and the respective winners from which contested the final.   

The teams from Deloitte, Nexia BT, RSM and Fenech & Fenech fought out the semis resulting in a keenly fought duel between RSM and Fenech & Fenech advocates. The latter overcame the challenge posed by RSM to come out worthy tournament winners with a 2-1 score line.

Deloitte meanwhile conceded their 3 points to Nexia BT’s A team placing our firm third in the tournament.

Meanwhile proceeds generated through the sale of food and drinks at the event totalled over Eur600. The cost for the latter was covered by Nexia BT itself.  Some of the firm’s staff members themselves also generously donated food they made themselves towards the same objectives. The money is being donated to Puttinu Cares.

In an effort to include the players’ spouses, partners and kids and turn the event into a family occasion, this year saw the addition of a kids friendly zone with a play area and face painting.  It is hoped that the event will become an all family inclusive one in the coming years with the addition of other games and entertainment that would encourage more participation from the players’ families, thereby increasing its appeal as well as value.

Nexia BT would like to thank all those who contributed to the organisation and success of the tournament including staff members and their families as well as all the players from the respective participating teams and their families too.
