Games Eden Soccer Tournament

Games Eden

Published: 09th September 2014.

On Sunday 31st August over 100 people turned out to support the Games Eden Inaugural 6-a-side soccer tournament and networking event at the CASS Centre, Cambridge.

On the day, 7 teams participated to compete for the coveted Jon Hare Trophy! Teams included ARM, Jagex, Frontier Developments, Guerrilla Cambridge and Anglia Ruskin University.  And if you weren’t involved in the soccer, there were plenty of activities to keep friends and family entertained including a BBQ, Rounders and Putting. It was also a great chance to network with industry experts.

And the winners were….C4!  Despite the disappointment of losing in the finals, Jagex Team 1 did secure an award for the ‘Goal of the tournament’ in the final.

It was fun day for all the family and when asked to comment, Jon Hare said, "It was a brilliant day's football fought in good spirit and bright sunshine by six teams from Cambridge's game companies, who were in the end all undone by our guest team C4. The cricket and golf added to the sporting festivities and the barbecue was also very popular. Also thanks to our hosts at the CASS centre for their hospitality... roll on next year and let's hope one of the games companies can wrestle the trophy back."

The event was part sponsored by the VIVID project, housed at Anglia Ruskin University, and supported by volunteers from Universally Speaking.
