Semifinals showdown set
After two rounds of play, the scene for the semifinal of the Guinness Night Football five-a-side beach soccer tournament has been set for next weekend.
Crackers, who finished on top of pool A, will face Persévérance, while Dream Team, who finished first in pool B, will take on Stormy who finished second in pool A.
Crackers and Dream Team have both won all their five pool matches, garnering 15 and 13 points respectively, while Stormy have accumulated nine points from two wins and three defeats, with Persévérance on 11 points from four wins and one defeat.
The five-a-side tournament which began on May 19 gathered 12 teams who were divided into two groups.
The main idea behind such event is to unearth some of the finest footballers and grassroots talents that Seychelles has to offer, while it also provided a festive atmosphere with musical entertainment, food and beverages for the fans to enjoy while cheering for their favourite teams.
The first Guinness Night Football was held in Uganda and the inaugural programme in the country came to a thrilling conclusion on December 7 during a memorable night in Kampala, before moving to Cameroon, where their inaugural programme came to a glittering climax on January 11 in Douala.
