On Saturday May 25, 2019, it was time again for the traditional German Soccer Championship at a new venue: the British School of Beijing in Shunyi. The Sino-German business community came together to cheer for the twelve teams of the tournament, who competed with great commitment and passion for the title of the 8th German Soccer Champion in Beijing. The players as well as the more than 1,000 spectators enjoyed a great sports and family day.
After a day full of turbulent and exhilarating soccer matches, Ameco was in the finals for the third time in a row and competed against BMW for the trophy. In the end, BMW defeated Ameco 1:0 and won the tournament for the 4th time since the beginning of the German Soccer Championship Beijing in 2012. The Most Valuable Player and Top Scorer of the day was Christopher Homm from Ameco, the award for the Best Goalkeeper went to Li Xiaohang from BMW and this year’s Fair Play Award went to the team Aichelin.
For the first time this year the soccer championships were judged by a referee from Germany’s first league. The banner sponsor DEKRA as the official partner of the referees of the German Football Association (DFB) invited Marco Fritz to join the 8th German Soccer Championship in Beijing. Well-experienced trainers from Germany’s first league soccer club Bayer 04 Leverkusen gave children the great opportunity to gain first-hand practice in a professional soccer training.
