Pounding hearts, echoing in the field. Pools of sweat, accompanying anxious faces. The tension breaks. Suddenly, screams fill the arena. The crowd bursts with cheers and applause. GOAL!
Fellow football enthusiasts, did you take a moment to let a glimpse of the field engulf you? Did you inhale deeply? Did you get goosebumps? Get ready for an electric atmosphere, because NUST Community Services Club is coming back with the biggest Futsal event of the twin cities! Yes, NUST Footy Mania 2017 is on its way!
But first, let’s take a moment to recap Footy Mania 2016!
Last year, 32 teams participated with players going head to head, and most games ending at a final score of 1-0. The air was thick with a passion for the game. An excellent performance was shown by all the teams, but alas, where there is a game, there must be a winner. In the end, it boiled down to an intense match between Saints FC and Highlanders FC. A brilliant display of teamwork caused Saints FC to emerge victorious!
This year, the game will be revived from 3rd to 5th April, with teams from institutions across Pakistan. Footy Mania 2017 has had to face several delays due to a delicate security situation, but that has not deterred the enthusiasm of the dedicated organising committee. In fact, it has served as an opportunity for them to raise the standard, keep the vigour alive and making it even more exciting! What’s more, the winning team will go home with cash prizes, but the rest of the funds will make it to the NUST Endowment Fund!
With that, NUST Community Services cordially invites you to bring forth your A-game for the tournament! Whether you are coming as a player, or coming to fill the stands, we have a little something for all of you! Fetch your caps, paint your faces with the colours of your favourite team, rest those vocal chords and keep your eye on the ball. Get ready for the match of a lifetime!
