2022 Octane Capital Cup Raises £1,500 For Ukraine
Posted on May 16, 2022 | in Blog
It’s the third time that Octane have organised this football extravaganza, a combination of their brokers, surveyors, lawyers and Octane’s own staff - and this year was bigger and better than ever.
Twenty four teams competed for the coveted Octane Cup itself as well as second and third division prizes for perhaps the ever so slightly less able players in the form of the Octane Plate and the Octane Spoon. Howard Kennedy sponsored the delicious BBQ and Capital Surveyors the bar once again.
In each of its two previous years, 2018 and 2019 then interrupted by the pandemic, competition has been fierce and one or two teams have been known to take the event so seriously as to bring along ‘ringers’ including in the form of World Cup winning Robert Pires. Pires was sneaked in by PIA Financial in 2019 who, funnily enough, won the event that year.
This year, celebrity appearances included goalkeeper ‘Big G’ from Soccer AM who played in the Octane Capital 1 team and still couldn’t lift the silverware!
And the winners were:
Octane Cup: SPF beat Sirius Property Finance
Octane Plate: Bespoke Commercial beat Octane 1
Octane Spoon: Howard Kennedy beat Portway Finance
“What a fantastic day this was once again,'' says Jonathan Samuels, CEO of Octane Capital.
‘After a two year break the Octane Capital Cup was back with a bang and it was fantastic to bring so many brokers, surveyors, lawyers and Octane people together to have fun and to network like old times whilst also raising funds for the worthiest of causes, the Ukraine Disaster Emergency Committee fund.
If you think the property finance space is competitive, you want to see its participants playing football against each other for the coveted Cup - because that took competitiveness to a whole new level this year!” he adds.
All being well, Octane will be running the competition at Goals Wembley once again in 2023. We can feel the tension already.
