Designed to offer an inexpensive activity for students who were remaining in the city during the festive break, the tournament was enjoyed by over 50 students. Entry was only £5 per team with all proceeds being donated to the Volunteer Zambia fund. In  a close fought tournament it was the team from Edinburgh University Futsal club who came out on top in the final.
