JABONG TURF WAR – Football Gets Too Fashionable

What you think the combos work? Well, Combos not only work in sales, deals but works very well on the ground too in real life. The recent event “Jabong Turf War- Season2” attended by me was one such super hit combo where both F’s were brought together to engage Today’s Youth for a fun- filled experience.

Amazing combination of these two F’s i.e.  Football + Fashion have given confinement to a new era “Jabong Turf War” Season 2, Powered by Hummel. The event brought together 16 college teams, 10,000 spectators participating in the two-day campus tournament held at Greater Noida’s G.L. Bajaj Institute of Technology and Management (GLBITM).

GL Bajaj Institute Noida.jpgOMG, this was nostalgic because It took me back to my college days when I use to jump on the benches, shout out loud to cheer for my college teams while they were competing with other colleges.

Well, all this was happening here as students were cheering out with full energy to support their respective teams playing Football in a small Net.It was neck to neck competition between the teams and was more like “Do or Die” situation. In this fiery competition, Sharda University emerged as the champions of the Jabong Turf War Season II, picking up the Jabong Turf War trophy and cash prize of INR 25,000.
