IE honoured The Madrid Lions with the first place trophy and Chicago Booth with the second place trophy. The Man of The Tournament Prize was given to Juan Rubio from Chicago Booth.

The IE white team which was composed by the basis of the team which was preparing for IESE games, won all the matches (against Chicago Booth, The Madrid Lions and IE Blue).

A full bus of supporters joined us on this beautiful day at a wonderful venue, Parque Deportivo Puerta de Hierro. The day ended up with The Prize Ceremony, where the supporters and the players shared some tapas, hamburgers and drinks.
