As anyone who remembers the farcical 1982 World Cup final draw can attest, it’s tough to make pulling numbers from a bag an exhilarating experience.

Cup winners CBRE

Defending champions CBRE are again in with a shout of winning the trophy

Yet excitement filled the air  last week when representatives of property’s finest firms arrived at Lambert Smith Hampton’s London HQ for the draw of the 2018 Property Week Cup. This year’s event, which will take place on 9 May at QPR’s Loftus Road ground, features an expanded field of 16 teams.

The draw, hosted by LSH chief executive Ezra Nahome, saw QPR’s Neil Sayer and PW’s Richard Hook tasked with picking numbered Kinder Eggs out of a bag.

LSH might think twice about inviting PW to participate in future draws after the company was placed in the ‘group of death’ alongside defending cup winners CBRE, last year’s plate winners Gardiner Theobald and dark horses Titlestone.

One definite winner is the Bobby Moore Foundation for Cancer Research UK, with the charity set to again receive proceeds raised at the event - to donate you can visit
