7th German Soccer Championship in Beijing!
The Winner 2018 is…BMW!
On Saturday May 26, 2018, it was time again for the traditional German Soccer Championship and at 9 am, the Minister of the German Embassy, Mr. Regenbrecht, kicked off the games of the 7th Soccer Cup at Si’de Park in Beijing. Once again, the Sino-German business community came together to cheer for the twelve competing teams and to enjoy a sports and family day with delicious food, refreshments, and fun activities - offered by the various sponsors of this year’s tournament.
For the first time, two soccer clubs of Germany’s first league were part of the German Soccer Championship. Well-experienced trainers from Bayer 04 Leverkusen gave children the great opportunity to gain first-hand practice in a professional soccer training, while trainers from VFL Wolfsburg supported all guests at the goal shooting wall and helped them to improve their kicking skills.
After a full day of matches, Ameco competed against BMW for the trophy. In the end, BMW defeated Ameco in a thrilling penalty shootout and won the 7th tournament.
A grateful thank you goes out to all teams, event partners, sponsors, soccer clubs and volunteers as well as the soccer committee who made this tournament a memorable and enjoyable day.
