Exceptional individuals can only go so far without a team behind them. Conversely, any team wishing to achieve extraordinary things can’t rely on itself alone, it needs flickers of individual genius to triumph.This formula applies to both sports and business.
Here at Azure, we’re lucky to have extraordinary individuals who come together to form an amazing, hardworking team. With the team-individual formula working beautifully on the business side, we decided we need an extra challenge.
Enter Azure FC.
A call to arms instantly attracted a talented and hardworking band of footballing brothers keen to show off their skills on a non-sales pitch. So, once a week, instead of dribbling among deadlines, hitting targets and completing tasks, they get the honour of wearing the Azure colours and celebrating goals of a more physical nature.
What’s more, Azure FC players come from almost every department within the company and from every corner of Europe – from Sweden and Malta to Portugal to Romania. Azure’s line-up certainly competes with Premier League teams in terms of international players signed.
The team’s first challenge?
The 2016-2017 edition of the Goalline Amateur League, which is an amateur football competition taking place at Pieta Grounds. And the situation on the ground, currently? Azure FC occupies 4th place in the group, with a real chance of finishing in the top 3. Outside the amateur football league competition, the boys plan to participate in charity events to support local NGO’s and, of course, enlist in as many competitions as time (and legs) allow.
