Breeze 2018 witnessed a vibrant and zestful ‘Football and Futsal’ tournament organised during all the three lively days of the fest at Shiv Nadar University. The tournament was played amongst the best of teams from as many as 14 colleges and universities across North India. Boys played football while girls played futsal.

The matches were played on February 9, 10 and 11 on the well maintained football fields facing the Indoor Sports Complex. The matches used to start at about 10 in the morning and went on late in the evening when the numerous floodlights surrounding the field illuminated the atmosphere. The tournament was organised by Anmol Mahajan with help from Shubham Joshi, Amit Chalka, Aksh Khanna and others. Overall it was a well conducted event with professional referees and good playing turf complementing the smooth functioning of the tournament.
