Black Country Chamber 5 a-side Tournament 2017

Last week, Klick Business Solutions took part in the Black Country Chamber of Commerce annual 5 a-side football tournament for the first time. The event took place at the Powerleague sports complex in Halesowen and saw 13 companies battle for the 2017 title.

Drawn in a group of five, Klick stormed through to the quarter finals by winning all four group games, despite going behind early in three of the matches. We then went on to win our quarter-final contest in a pulsating penalty shoot-out after a closely-fought game finished 2-2 in normal time.

Unfortunately, the last four was as far as we were able to progress, falling short in a 5-2 defeat to defending champions Signs Now Solutions in the semi-final. The tournament then concluded with Walsall Academy clinching the title after defeating Signs Now Solutions in the final.

All participating members of the Klick team thoroughly enjoyed competing against other Black Country businesses and progressing all the way to the semi-final. Although we were obviously disappointed to exit the tournament, it was great fun getting there and we will definitely be looking to go at least one step further in 2018.

We would like to thank the Black Country Chamber of Commerce and all the participating teams for a fantastically organised and greatly enjoyable event. Klick Business Solutions also pass on our congratulations to eventual winners Walsall Academy on their victory, we’ll see you next year!
