Wholesale Clearance win the Tamebay Cup
It was a close run competition, but Wholesale Clearance beat Genie and the Geek in the final of the Tamebay Cup. Having already played earlier in the competition and held each other to a draw, it was a nail biting final to see if Genie and the Geek could win for a second year in a row.
It wasn’t to be however, and Wholesale Clearance triumphed to be named Tamebay Ecommerce Cup managed by Genie and the Geek champions for 2013.
There was plenty of action during the night with some key must watch games. eBay and Amazon held each other to a draw unlike last year when eBay were trounced 4-1. Drawn in the same group which Linnworks was leading, eBay and Amazon both won their final group stage matches knocking Linnworks out and proceeding to the quarter finals.
We’ve not confirmed ages, but we think the oldest players were probably Keith Bird, CEO of eSellerPro, and Steve Boland of Seller Dynamics.
All in all it was a great night, we’ll have more photos and full match results later, but in the mean time congratulations to all teams who took part, thanks to the team from Genie and the Geek of organising, keeping score and generally making sure people knew which pitch they were playing on at what time, and especially a huge cheer to the champions – the guys from Wholesale Clearance.
What was the final score in the end?
Sorry I missed the tournament but well done for organising, I’m sure everyone enjoyed it!
Waiting for all the scores to come over later today, but ChannelAdvisor acquitted themselves well 🙂
Hi Julia, we’ve got all the match scores published now at http://tamebaynew.wpengine.com/2013/05/tamebay-cup-results.html
Luzern must try and organise the Irish version of this – plenty of potential teams located here here ( eBay, PayPal etc )
Then we’ll get Geenie and the Geek to organise the Champions League version.
Well done to everyone …sounded like a great event.
Next year you should get a team over for the night, but do let us know if you get an Irish league running 🙂
Super evening and very well organised by Tayyab and the Genies on each pitch door!
Well done to Wholesale Clearance — professional quality goal-keeping was on display last night: my vote for man of the tournament for the fella in black!
Congrats to the Wholesale Clearance guys – well done for winning the eCommerce world’s biggest event!
Amazing tournament once again, thank you goes to organisers and participated teams.
Till the next year!
Well done Guys !
Well that’s us back at work after a long drive back to Scotland yesterday. Still a bit tired and stiff but we had an absolutely fantastic time at the tournament. All the guys are definitely up for doing it again next year although we’ll need to bring more subs and work on our fitness! Thanks again for organising it, the pictures are great.
PS- Paul Taylor of Seller Dynamics is actually a few months older than Steve!
