Match of the Light Year Football

Match of the Light Year Football

While hundreds of intergalactic itinerants were enjoying the champagne fuelled extravagance of the Gala Dinner, some of the sportier ILMC members made their way to north London for the 2018 Match of the Light Year football showdown. All but one delegate, that is, who mistakenly got on the wrong coach and found himself at The Hive Stadium rather than the luxurious setting of 8Northumberland…

With the UK taking on the Rest of the Universe in a game of epic proportions, the teams managed admirably to battle it out for 90 minutes on the pitch, despite only being nine-a-side in numbers.

Bragging rights in The SMG Space Bar afterwards went to the Rest of the Universe squad, thanks to their 4-3 win, while the accolade of Man of the Match went to Primary Talent International’s Craig d’Souza, ironically for providing the greatest number of goal assists to the opposition.
