Futsal: Indoor Football Tournament At IVWS

11th September 2017

This 5 a side indoor football tournament was our maiden inter school sports endeavour. The response was overwhelming with enthusiastic participation from 14 schools across Kolkata. This two day event saw stalwarts of the game as Chief Guest and Guests of Honour. Mr.Kalyan Chaubey, two time awardee of the Indian Goal Keeper of the year Award, Mr. Mehtab Hussain ex captain East Bengal team and Mr. Debraj Choudhury, East Bengal executive committee member graced the occasion as Guests of Honour. The tournament was declared open with unveiling of the trophies and the ‘Kick Off’ by all three dignitaries. What followed was a stiff fight between teams in the league stage to make it to the knock out stage. Day 1 concluded with 8 teams qualifying for the knock out. Day 2 commenced in high competitive spirits. After thrilling semi-finals, St. Xavier’s Collegiate School and St. Joseph and Mary’s School qualified for the finals. An intense penalty shootout resulted in St. Xavier’s claiming the Champion’s Trophy. The Honours were done by Mr. Alvito D’Cunha ex East Bengal Team captain, the Chief Guest for the evening.​ ​We hope the tournament will scale newer heights in the second edition.
