There was a first phase, in which all teams played against each other, followed by semi-finals among the best four and then the final. In total, 31 goals were scored in 13 exciting matches. This year the trophy went to France, as INSEAD became the champion after beating IESE in an thrilling final match that finished 0 – 0, followed by a penalty kicks dispute (4 – 3 for INSEAD).

futbol3Both IE and IE Alumni got to the semifinals but lost to INSEAD and IESE, respectively (1 – 0 and 0 – 0 (4 – 3 PK). But most importantly, all teams had fun playing football and enjoyed the opportunity to network with students from different business schools.
