We enjoyed continued success with the UK Corporate Games in Preston, the 5th World Corporate Cup of Soccer at Anfield (home of Liverpool FC) as well as inaugural editions of the Bucharest Corporate Cup of Soccer and the Europe Corporate Cup of Tennis.I am sure you will agree that 2012 has been a wonderful year for everyone involved, with more opportunities provided than ever before.All of these Games and More will be made available for you to enter next year, as well as the breathtaking 19th UK Corporate Games in the heart of England in Coventry, the 1st Buenos Aires Corporate Games, as well as first editions of the Annecy-le- Vieux Corporate Games in France and the Transylvanian Winter Corporate Games in Dracula’s homeland early in February. We are also delighted to confirm that the World Corporate Cup of Soccer will be returning to Anfield at the start of June, as the hospitality and access granted to us by Liverpool Football Club is truly exceptional, enabling us to deliver another unparalleled experience with everyone playing at least one match on the Hallowed turf!.
It has been a pleasure to bring these unrivalled opportunities to you this year and we will be looking forward to enhancing these opportunties for you and your Organisations next year and in the future. You are the Worldwide Corporate Sport Community and we are proud to have your support.
