Thursday saw the return of Fizzy FC to Powerleague Shoreditch for two epic five-a-side games. It was the perfect way to welcome new members of the Fizzy team and our residents; we like to set the tone early on, so of course the prosecco was popped and the Haribo was passed around!
Players from our Stepney, Poplar, Canning Town and Lewisham buildings pitched up on the astro-turf and the game kicked off in excellent spirit and indeed to a surprisingly high level!
The Bobs (our property managers) showed strong partisanship for their own tenants from the side-lines while our Fizzy mascot, Milo, spread the love to everyone by barking his support and partaking in a pitch-invasion on the final whistle.
Team Fizzy were triumphant in the first match, but tenant numbers were bolstered in the second and they secured a win in the final game.
Goal of the night was scored by Jake Rimmer from Fizzy Poplar after a jinking run, cutting in from the left wing, nimbly beating three Team Fizzy players and scoring well at the near post. He wins a bottle of Prosecco for his Man of the Match performance.
Surprisingly, Frank Lampard even came down to watch this epic tournament (well sort of – he was signing autographs next door at an Adidas event) and the UEFA Cup trophy was on display.
To top things off, Fizzy’s Repairs Manager, Arsh and his adorable son Arno were then welcomed into the Adidas tent for photos with the cup, which has definitely given little Arno a taste for silverware… legend.
Ending on a high, we all enjoyed pizza and beers after the match with a side of friendly Fizzy banter.
Another roaring success and we’re really looking forward to the next game.
We’re all about getting to know our residents in a relaxed, fun and social way, which is why we love hosting our Fizzy events. To book a viewing at any of Fizzy developments or for further information, please contact the Fizzy Sales Team on 020 8607 0555 or email email@example.com.
