African Online last Saturday clinched the ultimate silverware in the 2nd C Squared Fibre tournament at the Burma Camp Sports Complex.
They defeated Surfline 2-1 on penalties after a 0-0 scoreline to emerge tops in the nine-team competition.
C.Squared’s Country Manager, Estelle Akofio-Sowah described the event as a huge success saying, “It’s been a huge success, the C Squared Fiber Cup is an opportunity for the C Squared team to engage with our stakeholders outside of the usual corporate environment.
“Coming at the end of the year, the tournament is a great avenue for us to let our hair down, have some fun, and relax. What better way to do this than to play football, our nation’s favorite sport? It’s not business all the time.”
The seven-a-side event drew nine companies comprising MainOne, Surfline, Vodacom, Afriwave, AfricaOnline, Busy, Teledata ICT, C Squared, and Jai Mai Communications
Last year, 14 companies took part in the event with Busy emerging winners in the inaugural Fiber Cup tournament.
The Fiber Cup is C Squared’s annual football tournament. The event is a one-day affair for the company’s stakeholders and customers to gather for a congenial day of football, friendship, networking, good food and music, with the ultimate goal of crowning one Fiber Cup Champion.
With an emphasis on fair play, matches will be officiated by professional referees on the top-quality Burma Camp Sports Complex football pitch. All teams will be encouraged to display good sportsmanship.
