Here at VMware we pride ourselves on having a healthy and fun work-life balance. Recently, the VMware Cork office, in Cork, Ireland highlighted this balance by starting up the VMware International Football Club this year. Managed by Andrew Mulcahy (Senior HR Business Partner at VMware) and coached by Jonathan Perrott (former employee of VMware), the team trains twice a week, and consists of between 25-30 individuals who form a match day squad of 15 for each weeks match based on their availability.
From Inside Sales, Global Support Services, Finance, and IT, the team truly encompasses a cross-section of different departments within the Cork office. Robert Cameron, Manager of Technical Support stated, "The great thing is that it has really gotten different departments of VMware talking and getting to know each other outside of work making it easier to build relations within the work environment."

VMware International's pre-season training has definitely paid off. Having won three of their four games, with 9 goals scored, the team is hopeful to move up the ranks in the local Cork Business & Shipping League. Their first match of the 2011-2012 season vs. Cork City Council, a local government team was a victory with a final score of 2-1.
