Novo Fogo hosts a “Bartenders Soccer Cup” annually at Portland Futsal. And, annually, the Seattle Bartenders pour the proper ingredients to win the thing. They have done it in 2012, 2013 and now again in 2014.
The winning team in the 5-v-5 tournament gains possession of the Novo Fogo Cup, and receives a $1,000 prize to fund a wellness activity for bartenders in their city. Other prizes were awarded for the Hottest Team (New York) and the Best Team Spirit (Missouri).
About the tournament, Novo Fogo says:
We may be a liquor company (CACHAÇA!), but we believe in living rich lives outside of the bar and striking a sustainable balance between the two worlds. This is why our hearts go pitter-patter when we find bartenders who do the same, especially through music and sports.
Our objective: promote health and wellness to our craft, especially during boozy Cocktail Weeks. Think about it: you can be a role model!
