Starting in June 2014, over 1 million Australians will choose bbc.com/sport for its world renowned football coverage* and to celebrate their ‘Mil for Brazil’ campaign, BBC.com will be hosting a 5 A-Side Football Agency Cup competition on Thursday 30th January at Centennial Parklands, followed by a Brazilian fiesta.

BBC.com is inviting agencies to join in the competition with a mixed team of five players to compete for the chance to be crowned the ‘BBC.com 5 A-Side Football Agency Cup Champions’!  Following the football there will be a Brazilian fiesta with food, music, drinks and dancers.

In 2014, the BBC will be there for all the matches, offering leading commentary, expert analysis and coverage. Going beyond the matches bbc.com will host a variety of great programming that explores the human stories behind the game, and how the game influences Brazil’s culture.

‘Every four years the world gathers around for one of the great sporting events, that brings people together from all different cultures and bbc.com will be there at the forefront covering it from all angles. There are plenty of budding Messis, Ronaldos and Rooneys in the industry so we're out to find the best agency team in Sydney and unearth some hidden talent in the process,’ said Alistair McEwan, Vice President ANZ, BBC Advertising.
