Joga Bonito: Who’s the king of the cage at UCL?
See how your department is faring in this UCL-wide tournament
UCL’s departments have been putting forward their best 5-a-side squads this term as they vie to become the kings of street football in this new tournament. Matches have been taking place this term at Warren Street’s cage, pictured below.
Mario Johnson, of chemical engineering, saw the popularity of 5-a-side last year and was inspired by the engineering league – a popular annual competition exclusively for engineering students.
Having now brought street football to the masses of UCL, he had this to say about the new format:
“The general response has been good – I wanted to advertise it even more but to get 30+ responses for a brand new league is fairly decent I’d say. I hope it is continued next year and even more departments get involved.”
Here are the latest results from the first round:
Technology Entrepreneurship 11 – 4 Electrical Engineering
Information Management for Business 5 – 3 Mechanical Engineering
“The Space Bandits” 4 – 1 Mechanical Engineering
Computer Science 9 – 8 Medical Physics
Physics 4 – 3 Computer Science
Maths 10 – 9 Chemical Engineering
Economics “The Slutskys” 12 – 3 Bioscience
Chemical Engineering 10 – 3 Biochemical Engineering
Civil / Environmental Studies won 9-3
Medical Physics won 4-3
Spare a moment for those that have been knocked out at this early stage. And especially those engineering teams, who despite having the experience of playing in this league last year, saw five of its teams crash out.
