ASI Group Soccer Team Performance
ASI Group was very proud to participate in this charity event, which was a success! We were happy to play with our colleagues and with the other teams, to share playful time with colleagues who came to cheer us.
This inter-companies tournament gathered 32 mixed men and women teams of 7 players each. Our Soccer team had been training hard for several weeks and met many other great teams coming from different companies well-established in Shanghai.
Our team, initially in Group G, won the three group games 4-1, 1-0, 1-0, and managed to finish at the first position of the group. Our ranking enabled us to participate in the Elite Cup tournament. Then, we won again 1-0 but sadly were defeated in the quarter-finals by the Decathlon-Kipsta team 0-2. Nevertheless, all of us had a good day and enjoyed playing on the field for this charity event.
See you next year!
