On Saturday, September 23, the 5th annual charity futsal tournament, SVOBODA & WILLIAMS CUP took place at the Aréna Sparta – Podvinný mlýn in Libeň. Altogether 12 teams representing companies from the world of real estate and banking fought to win the Svoboda & Williams challenge cup. Thanks to scoring two goals in the final the bpd development team was the lucky winner. The amount of CZK 183 900 raised during the tournament will support the Tereza Maxová Foundation. The amount was symbolically handed over to Terezie Sverdlinová, the director of the foundation, and Renata Langmannová, the ambassador of the TERIBEAR project.

The best player of the tournament award went to Miroslav Koutenský from the bpd development team, while Jiří Žáček from the Svoboda & Williams team received the best goalkeeper of the tournament award.
