The winning futsal team of John Keells Holdings (JKH) will this weekend savour a lifetime opportunity at Liverpool Anfield, courtesy of Standard Chartered Bank.

Having emerged as champions of the SC Cup 2019, a competition for customers of the Standard Chartered Bank, the 7-member JKH team will participate at a training session at Liverpool FC Academy today, and tomorrow will enjoy a tour of the Anfield Stadium followed by witnessing the blockbuster Premier League clash between Liverpool FC and Manchester City.

The Standard Chartered’s five-a-side futsal tournament, the SC Cup 2019 was held in June at the Racecourse Grounds with 17 client teams representing the Commercial and Global Banking businesses participating. JKH won the competition and the opportunity to tour United Kingdom and enjoy the Anfield experience.

The JKH team comprises of Lahir Muhammad Nabeel, Seimon Yolan Roncarl, Singhawansa Mohomed Hishan, Haariz Mohamed Atif, Siriwardena Mahanama Ruvinya, Valentine Russel Devin Joseph and Azmy Mohamed Azeem.

This opportunity is made possible by the longstanding global sponsorship between Standard Chartered and the Liverpool Football Club. The Bank’s sponsorship agreement was renewed last year, making 2019 the ninth year as partners. The SC Cup 2019 was for the fourth year and the Anfield opportunity is part of the Bank’s commitment to offer the best experiences to its Sri Lankan clients using the strength of global sponsorship.

Past winners of SC Cup were MAS Active Trading (Kreeda Division), Expolanka Group and WNS Global Services.
