Business House Football is back.

With a total number of 36 teams taking part in this year’s competition, the aim is for employees to participate and to have fun. They will also learn more about football in a social environment.
The tournament encourages team building amongst the employees.
FFS Acting CEO Sarai Bareman commented on the start of the tournament: “We are very excited that so many teams have decided to join this year. We wish all the teams the best of luck. The aim of this tournament is for everyone to have fun and to enjoy themselves”.
The tournament is scheduled to take place over the next 12 weeks. The teams participating are from government ministries, private companies and multinational corporations.
The competition is played using a mixed format with men and women playing in the team. Each game is played for 40 minutes (two half of 20 minutes). Teams are also given unlimited number of substitutions and players can sub in and out as much as they want.
One of the major rules for this year’s tournament is not allowing a player that has registered as a national league season to participate. This was done in order to make the tournament a truly social event between the participating companies and teams.
Last years defending champions NUS Staff Soccer Team will be looking at defending the title, which they won last year defeating National Bank of Samoa in a pulsating final on in a penalty shoot out (3-2).
