The inaugural OBA Football Tournament, was held over two weekends -on 29 November and 6 December, 2015. The event was divided into two tournaments -for the pre-1990 and post-1990 batches. A total of 18 teams participated. Every team played in the true Josephite spirit. While competition was fierce, no red cards were awarded. The semi-final and final-were played under floodlights.
The Batch of 1990won the pre-1990 tournament while the Batch of 2006 won the post-1990 tournament. Anto (Batch of 2004) won the Player of the Tournament prize. Anup Raj (Batch of 2007) won the prize for scoring the most goals. The winners’ trophies and individual prizes were distributed on 12 December during the Christmas dinner.
The tournament was in fact the first-of-its-kind in Bangalore. The OBA thanks the sponsors for their support. BFC supported us with goalposts, balls and referees. Old Boys helped secure water from Himalaya and energy beverages from Tata Global. The OBA thanks Old Boys for enthusiastic participation and is keen on conducting the 2016 edition of the tournament. It truly felt like the clock had been wound back, playing on the school ground all over again.
