The Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Singapore kicked off the annual CPA Games with a street soccer tournament on Saturday (September 11) at the Singapore Indian Association. ICPAS has been organising the CPA Games, the Olympics of the local accountancy profession, since the 1980s. More than twenty years on, the Games continue to attract strong participation from the CPA Firms, including many from the Big 4 firms.
This year, close to 200 teams will be participating in 18 sports including cricket, paintball and beach volleyball. For the first time, staff from the Auditor-General’s Office are participating in this year’s Games.
ICPAS President Dr Ernest Kan said: “The CPA Games celebrate the spirit of sportsmanship and promote the sporting values of excellence, friendship and respect. The Games are also an avenue for those in the profession to interact and build friendships. With this annual event, we hope to help strengthen the bonds among participants and build a cohesive CPA Singapore community.”
The CPA Games are held from now till November this year. This year, ICPAS has added new games as darts and beach volleyball.
