Each team played intense, challenging games against opposition from Australia, Indonesia, Philippines and Malaysia.

The BISP U13s Football team finished in 4th place while the U15s finished 2nd. Both teams gained valuable experience from this tournament.

Their team spirit, fair play and football skills impressed the officials, resulting in an invitation to represent Brazil in partnership with Cruzeiro Philippines at the Boy’s U15s Bali International Football Championship in Indonesia.

This is a very prestigious tournament created by the Republic of Indonesia’s Youth and Sports Ministry and highly supported by the Indonesian government.

BISP Cruzeiro Football Academy’s Head Coach, Jonathas Candido, commented, “If we do well in this tournament, we will be at a higher level internationally. The fact that we have been invited due to our performance during the Borneo Cup is positive recognition that we are going in the right direction with our training and program.”
