The Inaugural LFL Football Tournament
26th May 2017
The Lessons for Life Football Tournament debuted at London's Play Football, Shepherd's Bush. It was an excellent opportunity to gather our friends and supporters with 22 teams taking part from Liberty Global and the banking and legal sectors.
After our CEO Prescott Price kicked off the evening with a welcome speech, over 150 brave souls took to the sun-drenched pitches to play to support Lessons for Life.
All teams played well. Even Lessons for Life’s own team managed to win one game! The night ended after some impressive (and not so impressive) scores, followed by a presentation and speech by Liberty Global's Nick Marchant.
Credit Agricole took the 2017 title in style. Their tight-knit team put on a great display of talent throughout the evening and beat runners up HSBC 8-0 in the final battle of the night. Congratulations Credit Agricole! Liberty Global M&A were worthy winners of the Tournament Plate beating Credit Suisse 4-2
