Work for a big company? Why not organise teams amongst your departments or even better, management vs. staff!


The chosen charity for this event is Folia Agapis, an organisation highly respected in Cyprus for supporting foster families and promoting the well-being of youngsters under their care. The charity works alongside new and experienced foster parents and promotes the importance of fostering to the general community. Folia Agapis also arranges a wealth of fun activities to encourage the social interaction and development of foster children.

Speaking of the upcoming paintball tournament, TradeSocio CTO Wael Salem said:

“At TradeSocio we strongly believe in giving back to the community and are thrilled to be backing Folia Agapi’s remarkable work which undoubtedly changes the lives of many children and families for the better. What they do is inspirational, and we hope to raise plenty of money. We’re also excited about uniting the financial sector in what should be a fiery, fun and competitive day out. Who will win? I guess we’ve just got to wait and find out – but I’m sure everyone’s going to put up a good battle.”

Paintball Cyprus offers a wide range of game scenarios and exciting backdrops to make the experience as exciting as possible. With themed arenas and plenty of outdoor space to run around and dodge enemies, competitors can get in the zone and unleash their inner paint shooting warrior. Protective clothing and safety equipment is provided but it’s advised that everyone taking part comes wearing old clothes.

While this is primarily an industry event designed to unite the finance world for a deserving cause, participants are welcome and encouraged to bring their families along to the tournament for support. A kid’s corner will be available to keep the little ones occupied and there will be food, music and other games taking place throughout the day.

All the latest news and information about the 1st charity financial industry paintball tournament can be found on the TradeSocio Facebook page. This will be updated regularly with announcements regarding the event as well as photographs from the big day.

Cyprus, are you up for the challenge? If so, register your team today and take part in one of the most unique charity events on the island in 2018. Seize the opportunity to raise money for a good cause, shoot your competition and have a great day out with your colleagues!
