Acme organized a 8 a side league tournament at our Acme ground from 21st to 23rd of November 2014. Main idea behind the tournament was to create playing opportunity for the academy boys.

  • Total of 10 teams participated out of which 3 were our academy teams
  • 8 players and 3 subs were allowed per team and substitutions can be made on a rolling basis
  • Teams were divided into 2 groups of 5 each each team will play against other 4 opponents in the league format
  • Top 2 teams from each group will qualify for the semifinal league
  • In the semifinals 4 teams will play each other and the top 2 teams will play again in the Finals
  • Our strongest team top their group with 4 wins and qualified for the semifinal league
  • In the semifinal league our team could manage just one win and failed to qualify for the finals
