SBS Cup Cage Football Tournament

When one talks about cage football, the first images that comes to one's mind is that of the famous Nike ad where the likes of Francesco Totti, Luis Figo, Cristiano Ronaldo, Roberto Carlos play against each other in a secret tournament hosted by Manchester United legend Eric Cantona in a moving ship. The Secret tournament (also known as Scorpion KO) was a Nike Campaign, which featured 24 - contemporary football players and Eric Cantona as the Tournament Referee. The concept was a fictional tournament involving eight teams of three of football’s top players in a first-goal-wins elimination.. The matches were staged in an enclosed pitch on a ship. This was a very unique concept which took the world by storm and the breathtaking skills by the legends of world football that made the campaign an overnight favorite.

SBS has helped in bringing a revolutionary change in the football scenario in Ahmedabad by bringing all the football enthusiasts on a single platform and making them compete in a closed cage. “It will be the T20 of football,” Abhishek Singh, the organizer of SBS Cup Cage10 said, adding, “Imagine ten people playing non-stop football for 20 minutes (each half ten minutes). With no corners and no offside it would be a treat to watch with action packed in every second of it.”
The Concept:
  • Its a shorter version of football played inside a cage and with 5 players on each side. The trend which is already very popular in cities like Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore has reached Ahmedabad.
  • Each Team consists of 5 players and 3 substitutes.
  • Each half is of ten minutes with a five minute break.
  • There is no outside or corner in this game, the cage ensures that the game continues without a hault, unless someone gets injured, the referee calls for a half time, in case of a foul or a goal is struck.
  • The cage Dimensions are 30*17*3 meters.
