LIME VP of marketing, Carlo Redwood, said the inaugural LIME Street Challenge Futsal Tournament was much more than they anticipated and they will look back and see how they can improve and expand the tournament for next year.

"It was much more, it was a great tournament," Redwood commented, after watching Portmore's Young Madrid beat St Thomas' Bath 4-2 in the final.

"We saw big crowds in every parish, we saw spectacular goals and lots of goals. So it's been an awesome success and this final just showed what it has been for the last few months. The community supporters came out to cheer their teams, the entertainment was great, everything just worked and we believe we delivered a first-class tournament," he stated.

Redwood said based on the tournament's overwhelming success, there will be increased interest to participate next year and they want to accommodate more teams and find new ways to improve the product.

Bigger and better

"Flow and LIME are together, so it's going to be bigger and better, as we (LIME and Flow) are better together. We are always looking for new and innovative ways to experience football ... and we also want to add more creative ways to engage communities.

"We are going to look back at the competition and make some evaluations, and from there we will see how we can expand it as that is something we are definitely looking at. Many of these people were seeing futsal for the first time and we wanted to created a World Cup experience for futsal and I believe we did that," he continued.

"But we were satisfied in every way, we got full satisfaction, we overdelivered and we expect to do even better going forward," Redwood noted.
