This year’s tournament event brought something new to the flow by inserting a “crowd pleaser” segment where spectators were invited into the court for a game of CROSSBAR Challenge. Volunteers took turns to kick the ball towards the goal post without having it to go into the goal. The crowd were entertained by some of the actions and determination showcased by these volunteers. The top two game players were given game vouchers for their effort. Vouchers were sponsored by Real Sports Arena Klang.
