Polish teams shine at Rawlplug-sponsored Wrocław Trophy 2014
With the world in the throws of football fever thanks to the World Cup, Poland played host to the second annual Wrocław Trophy football tournament.
Played between the 4th and 6th July 2014, children and teenagers aged 11-19 from Poland and nine other countries (Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Ukraine, the Netherlands, Hungary, Romania, Denmark and Kosovo) contested a whopping 370 matches over three days in Wrocław’s Olympic Stadium.
Rawlplug as a promoter of social good through sport
As part of our ongoing efforts to support youth development through sport, Rawlplug was proud to sponsor this international festival of youth football and give children and young adults the opportunity to learn the value of teamwork and pit their skills against their international counterparts.
Rawlplug’s CEO, Radosław Koelner, beaming with pride, remarked:
“We feel privileged to sponsor this wonderful event. We are passionate about the value of sport and its contribution to good health, cultural awareness and the appreciation for the value of teamwork. It is an absolute pleasure to watch these young global citizens test themselves against their international counterparts and, above all, enjoy themselves in such a wonderful and professionally organised environment. We hope to be a part of this initiative for many years to come.”
Wrocław Trophy by the numbers
Across the different age groups and categories, the three days of action can be summarised as follows:
