Property 5-a-Side 2019
For the fourth year running, over 150 property professionals took over Powerleague in Shoreditch for an afternoon of football and networking.
Blayze Group was joined by dozens of companies from across the Property industry, including the likes of Paragon, Gardiner & Theobald, LOM Architecture & Design and Quartz!
The Property 5-a-Side has continued to grow every year; alongside the football, there was a BBQ, awards ceremony with celebratory drinks, a photographer and videographer (keep an eye out for the video footage appearing soon, but you can view all the photos here).
What has also continued to grow, year-on-year is the fundraising amount for LandAid. Each and every Property 5-a-Side Tournament is in support of this incredible charity, whose efforts take the UK closer to ending youth homelessness for good. This year, we are delighted to have raised £1,850 in total!
All donations from this year’s tournament will go directly to projects across the UK which aim to create safe, secure and affordable housing for young homeless people. Projects like the Cardinal Hume Centre in London, where LandAid’s grant is helping to refurbish a home for 32 young people. The residence will give vulnerable young people 24-hour support on-site, as well as providing English classes and a key support worker for each young person.
“It was a great event which we all enjoyed playing in. It was well organised and well managed on the day. We are hoping to return next year to try and get further in the competition whilst raising some more money for a good cause.” Tom Allgood – Senior M&E Cost Manager; Paragon Building Consultancy
Last Friday saw the return of the typical British summer, but the teams were spurred on by the rain. Congratulations to our reigning champions Gardiner & Theobald for bringing home 1st place for the third year running!

“In its fourth year, the 2019 Property 5-a-side tournament was another huge success. It was great to see such a strong variety of clients, some new and some that have been attending since its inception, all coming together to raise money for such a worthwhile cause as LandAid. Plans are already underway to ensure the 2020 tournament is the biggest to date. Thank you to all of the clients who make the event possible and a special mention goes to Gardiner & Theobald for winning the tournament for the 3rd year in a row, however it would be great to see someone new come out victorious next year!” Harry Macgregor – Consultancy Team Leader & Property 5-a-side Founder
