Up to 30 adult and junior teams are expected to attend one of Bali's biggest football events in late May, the 2006 Crown Bali Soccer Sixes. Held at the Canggu Club, Bali’s only private member's sporting and recreational club, on Saturday May 27, 2006, the event is attracting interest from teams from across Indonesia.
Planned as an annual event, this year event’s main sponsor is Crown Worldwide Indonesia.
The event will see teams from Jakarta, Surabaya, Sumbawa and Bali play each other in a one day, round-robin format. Normal football rules apply, with the exception of a decrease in number of players per team to only six and a reduced pitch size; all leading to faster games with higher scores. Junior teams will also feature in this year’s events, with games being played in Under 12, Under 14 and Under 16 divisions. Those attending the fun day of soccer competition will also be able to participate in a number of side events and attractions including "hit the crossbar" and juggling competitions.
Tournament Director Peter Muir said that the international standard facilities available at the Canggu Club means players and spectators will enjoy this year's event even more than in past years. "With a player's café, a great pitch surface and brand new amenities - it will be a great day for both players and spectators. And with the inclusion of our junior divisions, the whole family can now make the most of the day."
