A World Cup Penalty Kicks Tournament at the Office
For the past few weeks, the world is football and football is the world to many. 60k is not an exception and we honoured the biggest sports event of the year, FIFA World Cup with our very own penalty kicks tournament.
A total of 14 teams from all of our projects in Sofia and Plovdiv signed up for the competition and played in group and elimination stages. Undoubtedly, football is the most popular sport in Bulgaria that is why (and to support their colleagues of course) every match from the tournament was extremely popular with the rest of 60k’s employees! We even had a cheerleading squad from our Zumba project who came to support their friends at every single game. Performing penalty kicks turned out to be not as easy as it looks and there were a lot of heated situations.
After a lot of goals and not so many misses, the two teams who qualified for the finals in Plovdiv were one of our retail projects who won 1st place and from one of our media projects. In Sofia, the winners of the kick off tournament are Guns n Moses and the runner up is team Seatwave. Congratulations to everyone well done to our winners!
Apart from the penalty kicks tournament, we also celebrated by broadcasting every single match from the World Cup on TV across both offices – in all kitchens and common spaces. The football fever had been taking over our offices for a month now and we are very happy that we got to share this wonderful event with our colleagues.
