The Gazprom International football team has just won the 10th International Mini Football Gazprom Germania Cup that took place on 6th August at the Allianz Stadium in Berlin, bringing home victory for the fifth year in succession.
A similar feat had been previously achieved by the well-known German Schalke 04 veterans team who also won the Cup five years in succession from 2006 to 2011.
This year a total of nine teams competed for the chance to take home the Cup: PJSC Gazprom, Gazprom Germania, Gazprom Marketing & Trading, Gazprom Export, KazMunayGas, Verbundnetz Gas AG, Wingas, as well as the veteran teams - FC Zenit and Schalke 04.
Despite the amateur status of the competition, all players demonstrated great skill and the game remained tense and entertaining throughout.
In the Cup Final Gazprom International faced a strong opponent PJSC Gazprom who had triumphed over the veteran team of FC Zenit in the semi-final. Nonetheless, our team succeeded in securing a confident 2:0 victory.
We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate our team wholeheartedly on this remarkable victory, as well as to express our sincere gratitude to all Gazprom Germania employees for the professional and efficient way in which they successfully organized and hosted yet another year’s Cup.
