FSI bravely participated in a charity five a-side football tournament at Arsenal Football Club in June 2006, the last event to be held at the stadium before the team move to their new home: Emirates stadium. 

Organised by Facilities Recruitment Limited (FRL), one of the country's leading providers of recruitment and HR services to the Facilities Management industry (http://www.facilitiesrecruit.co.uk/), the football tournament was in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Research, and raised £6,575.00 for their cause.  The 2005 record of £4,335.00 was easily smashed this year, thanks to an impressive raffle, and fittest man/woman contests!

‘FSI Utd’ played two matches in the tournament, against hosts FRL, and Tower42.  Both matches were closely fought, and FSI Utd was narrowly ‘pipped to the post’ on both occasions.

Team line-up was as follows: Paul Bullard (Operations Director), Paul Durant (Implementation Consultant), James Styrka (Support Consultant), Syed Hassan (Application Developer), Tom Maton (Application Developer), Rob Sullivan (Software Tester), and Alex Pendrey (Application Developer, and FSI Utd Goalkeeper!).
