Road to Anfield first time in Sri Lanka

For the very first time in Sri Lanka football enthusiasts are afforded the LFC experience. Standard Chartered is launching an international 5-a-side football tournament known as the Standard Chartered Trophy – “The Road to Anfield”, leveraging on its sponsorship of Liverpool Football Club. Teams play in a qualification tournament in each participating market with the regional winners travelling to Anfield to play on the hallowed turf!

This is a “money can’t buy” opportunity for participants to win a chance at playing on a Premier League pitch. The local tournament, a five-a-side football tournament that the bank will be hosting, will be worked off on the 7th of February 2015 on a round robin basis at the Campbell Park ground, Colombo 08 from 8.30 a.m. onwards.

Road to Anfield, now in its fourth season, will see the participation of a total of 19 markets from across Standard Chartered’s footprint participating in the regional qualifying tournaments: Botswana, Brunei, Ghana, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Malaysia, Nigeria, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Gambia, Thailand, Uganda, Vietnam, Zambia & Zimbabwe. A total of 10 winning teams will then represent their country at the Standard Chartered Trophy Finals, to be played at Liverpool FC’s home ground, Anfield on 8th May 2015
