The Marketing Store wins IPM 2014 Football!
The Marketing Store won this year’s annual IPM 5-a-side Football
Tournament, beating The Promotions Factory by 2-0 in the final and collecting the
coveted IPM Cup (see picture).
The tournament, sponsored by promotional fixed fee provider Emirat, took
place on June 18 2014 at the London Soccerdome (formerly the David Beckham
Academy) in Greenwich, London.
The Marketing Store team receives the IPM Trophy from Steve Berry of Emirat
12 teams battled it out. While The Marketing Store were the eventual
overall winners, the IPM Shield was won by KHWS Ltd, which beat BD Network 1-0.
In addition to the football, Emirat organised two competitions for all the players – one was a 'Crossbar Challenge’
with the prize of a MacBook Air, while the other offered the chance to win £25,000 in cash.
For the 'Crossbar Challenge', anyone managing to hit the crossbar from 50
yards away (no uprights and a direct kick only, no bounces) would win the
MacBook – but this time around, nobody managed the feat.
In the IPM’s previous
football tournament in September 2013, however, where Emirat ran a similar competition,
one player won an iPad Mini.
In the second competition, 'Crack the Vault', anyone who managed to correctly guess the six digit combination lock code on a clear perspex box would walk away with £25,000. Nobody managed to crack the code, however.

As always, the event was booked out, with a sizeable waiting list for
any drop outs.
