Redbull hosted the Neymar Jr’s Five QLD State Qualifier at the Brisbane City Indoor Sports Center over the weekend. 14 teams from around the state attended this Brisbane event to battle it out for a spot in the all expenses paid trip to the National Qualifier, in Melbourne June 10.
The State Qualifier consisted of three rounds: group stage; knock outs; finals. In the group stage 3 wins and 1 loss saw the boys finish on 9 points placing them second in their group.
