U6/7 Diamond Conference Final
In this matchup, we saw Coach Tee and Jerrell’s Panthers take on Coach Tyler’s Lakers. The Lakers who won the regular season were looking to make it their second trophy of the season. Coach Tee and Jerrell were determined to lift the Superbowl trophy with their team. The game started out with the Panthers putting on early pressure but the Lakers worked well early in the second half to get it back to level at 2-2. After that, the Panthers stepped it up another gear and after going ahead, in the last few minutes they capitalised on the Lakers going for a late goal, and ran out eventual 6-2 winners.

U8/9 Western Conference Final
In the U8/9 Western Conference Superbowl, we saw Coach Abdi’s Grizzlies take on Coach Akin and Bobby’s Heat! This was an end-to-end game which saw drama right until the last second! The Heat came out of the blocks fast and raced into a 2-0 lead with a brace from Elijah H. But Coach Abdi has taught his team to never give up! The atmosphere was incredible from both sets of fans throughout, this seemed to help the Grizzlies… They fought back tirelessly and managed to finish the game 4-3 winners! This game was amazing and really showcased the quality of our internal league.

U8/9 Eastern Conference Final
This might be the best game we have ever seen at Pro Elite! Our U8/9 Eastern Conference matchup saw Coach Cem’s Lakers go up against top-of-the-table Rockets managed by Coach Tee! The Rockets finished the regular season with a whopping +47 goal difference, this game was guaranteed to have goals! The game started as it meant to go on, high intensity, great football and goals! The Rockets went 2-0 up but just before half-time, the Lakers got a very important goal. In the second half, you could’ve cut the tension with a knife. With around 10 minutes to go the Rockets went 3-1 up and many thought that was game over… A moment that left everyone speechless!
Then out of nowhere, Rayyan for the Lakers scored 2 goals in the last couple of minutes to send the game to penalties!
In the penalty shootout, there was one person who really stood up in the moment and that was the Lakers goalkeeper Hani P! He saved all 3 of the penalties he faced and helped his team to lift the Superbowl trophy!

U10/11/12 Platinum Conference Final
In our oldest Internal League, we saw our Rockets, managed by Coach Akin go up against Coach Connor’s Panthers. The Rockets, who went unbeaten during the regular season went up against the fearless Panthers team in what set up to be a very exciting game! The Panthers took an early lead but that was quickly overturned by the Rockets who went up 3-1 in the match. Connor’s Panthers then got another goal which set up a very tense ending to the match, with the Panthers attacking and trying to send the game to penalties. In doing so they left themselves open at the back and with 5 minutes to go, the Rockets took advantage and scored another and made the final score 4-2.
Rockets showed their incredible ability but both sides showed so much quality and fight to make a great game!
