[Event] Maestro Champions Cup 2012

"I want to divert these youths away from those bad habits by promoting sports and giving them a chance to excel in something they wouldn't have expected." said Mr Prasath S of "Magic Footwerkz" in his email to me not that long ago.

"Magic Footwerkz", an event organizing company with its forte in organizing football tournaments, especially the ever popular Futsal game.

With that aim mentioned earlier in mind, the company will be organizing - "Maestro Champions Cup 2012", a futsal tournament on the 26th of May at the "Kickers Bay", which is located in the premises of the Indian Association, one of those established sports clubs along Balestier Road.

According to Prasath who is the Event Manager of "Magic Footwerkz", the upcoming tournament is targeting the participating of 28 teams with eight players each in the "Open" category, while 16 teams will be completing in the "Under-17" category.

"Currently, more than 50% of the slots for both categories had filled with the tournament is still open for registration with no closing date until the quota is met." added the avid futsal player himself.

To give the event a more competitive edge will be the participation by teams which were featured in leading tournaments in the recent past such as teams represented Singapore in the Budweiser Cup in Argentina (La Plata Juniors) and "Tiger Street Challenge" ("On-The-Run") in China, Thailand.

These past Singaporean representative sides stand a chance to pit their skills against sides from Malaysia, which will be represented by three to five teams in this event that is likely to attract close to 360 people in attendance.

Beside the competitiveness of the upcoming event, Prasath also shed some lights on the attractive cash prizes to be offered.

He said:"So far, no local event offers cash prizes of over $1,000, and there will the minimum prize monies set at $1,200 for the 'OPEN' category that will make my event unique in this aspect.

"If I have sponsors coming in, I will even go up to $1.5k or $2k." he added.

All these financial carrots would, however, be secondary, as Prasath reiterate his vision that he hopes to achieve from organizing of such tournament.

"My current goal would be to organise these competitions to engage both schooling and working youths on a long term basis in encouraging them to go the right way through this sport."
