In an effort that combined the grit of a blue-collar English Premier League team and the skill and finesse of a top-flight Spanish club, SponsorPay took home the top prize at Startup Soccer Summit 2013. After narrowly missing the podium in each of the past two startup tournaments, the value-exchange advertising company finally reached the pinnacle of the tech and indoor football world.
The unit led by stalwart goalkeeper and tournament MVP, Greg Mansell, emerged at the top of the pool of 20 registered teams, including thrilling semifinals and finals matches decided by penalty kicks against Zalando and Wooga, respectively. Supporting Mansell on the championship roster were Conner Corwin, Hugo Serodio, Daniel Lynch, Hannes Engler, Lucas Tournier and the newly acquired Juan Jaramillo. After celebrating the milestone through the weekend, the team already has their sights set on defending the crown!
