Capital City Electrical provide spark as Business Fives winter season kicks off
Business Fives’ biggest-ever winter season kicked off in Edinburgh as five-a-side football-loving firms from the capital took part in the construction, housing and property heat.
The day got underway with a presentation from Scottish Housing News and Scottish Construction Now editor Kieran Findlay which has formed a partnership with Business Fives.
Firms from across the sector took part with the day kicking off with an icebreaker friendly warm up match where new connections across the sector were made. The companies taking part were Savills, Link Group, Dunedin Canmore, GVA, Capital City Electrical, Michael Laird Architects, Weslo Housing Management, Comprehensive Design Architects and Thomson Gray.
The heat’s format saw three groups of teams battle to qualify for Champions League.
For those who didn’t finish in the Champions League slots, they contested the Europa League - with an Intertoto Cup play-off to decide some of the final Europe positions.
In the Champions League, the semi-finals were contested between Comprehensive Design Architects, Dunedin Canmore, Capital City Electrical and Thomson Gray.
Capital City Electrical and Comprehensive Design Architects won through to the final, with Capital City Electrical running out comfortable 3-0 winners.
Both finalists also booked their spots in the grand final at Soccerworld in Glasgow in March 14.
In the Europa League final - which also provides a team with a route to the grand final - GVA beat Weslo HM 4-2 to qualify.
Top goal scorer was Capital City Electrical’s director Steven Wright with nine.
Tournament ambassador Pat Stanton presented the prizes to the winners - and singled out Ed Barbirou as the man of the match in the final for a super defensive display.
He then conducted a question and answer session with the teams to round off the day.
Both GVA and Capital City Electrical will go on to try and win the Business Fives donation for their chosen charity Alzheimer Scotland. Comprehensive Design Architects will be playing for Projekt 42 in the final.
