Die Mädchen erreichen das Finale der B-Division!
In the first weekend of May, 16 teams from all over Europe (the champion and vice-champions of every participating nation) gathered in Rome for the 14th Euroclubs: the European UWH Championship for clubs. The main goal of the Munich Men team, with players very diverse in both origin and experience, was to win at least one game.
After logical defeats against the vice-champions of France and champions of the Netherlands and England, Rennes, Barramoenda and Southsea respectively, the Munich Men team was relegated to the second group the following day. Sunday started with expected defeats against the champions of Scotland, Portugal and vice-champions of Spain. But nothing was played though and the following game against the champions of Czech Republic we won by the smallest of margins (1-0), after a fierce battle. Mission accomplished! Hungry for more, we played some more strong games, most notably against the champions of Italy who beat us with 2-0. The final result was a 7th place (of 8) in group B, a very promising standing for upcoming tournaments.
In between games, we had the time to cheer the Munich Girls team towards multiple victories against Belgium, Czech, and Turkey for example, as they played a very strong tournament, finishing 2nd in their group B. A very impressive and well-deserved result!
