Fifteen businesses from across Greater Manchester took part to fight for the Forever Manchester shield on FC United of Manchester’s 3G Community Pitch.
After a number of closely fought group matches, where even Tunafish media managed to score a goal and pick up 3 points, AutoTrader #2, MediaCom, Digitl and Brother UK found themselves in the semi-finals.
After a tense penalty shoot-out in the semi final against MediaCom, AutoTrader #2 qualified for the final against Digtl, who qualified after a victory against Brother UK.
The final turned into a comfortable 10 minutes for AutoTrader who won 3-0. The players clearly enjoyed by their success.

Great team effort for a battling 1-0 semi-final win against @Brother_UK, but just a step too far to compete with worthy winners @AutoTraderLife! #FMFootball#alwaysthebridesmaid #dejavu @wearedigitl

Nine brave men. Valiant in their efforts. No team could score past them. Until the final. AutoTrader put us to the sword in a 3-0 loss. Two years running and two years in the final. Maybe next year we won’t go as easy on you all! #fmfootball #football #soccer #teamwork pic.twitter.com/sVKe9RNUqd
