We took this years’ Football World Cup as an occasion to organise a World Kicker Tournament in our office. Participants were randomly put together into teams of two where each team was assigned to a participating country. Each team was then playing according to the World Cup schedule.
After completing nerve-wracking group matches, rounds of 16 as well as quarter finals, 4 teams eventually managed to reach the semi-finals, which were to be played in the employee kitchen, where soft drinks, beer, wine and food was served.
As expected, the kitchen was packed. Nobody wanted to miss out on the semi-finals and the following final. 2 teams (Portugal/England) made it to the final and after a very tensed match, Team Portugal eventually won!
Congratulations Portugal! This was a lot of fun! We are already looking forward to the European Championship in 2020!
