BMW became the first EUCCC Cup Champions on Saturday, 10th of June after a hard fought 1-0 victory over Volkswagen in the final. Tournament top scorer and final MVP Liu Hailiang precisely converted a late first half penalty to seal victory for his side who impressed throughout the tournament. Ernst & Young claimed victory in the tournament’s consolation Shield competition, overcoming Thyssenkrupp in another close final.
The event brought together 16 teams representing 14 companies, with over 600 attendees joining the event over the course of the day. In addition to the football action, kids enjoyed the bouncy castle, face painting and games, while Belgian brewer Vedett and local wine suppliers Cheers were on site to provide refreshments for the adults. Beijing’s favorite expat cover band the Beijing Beatles provided the entertainment in the pre-final show, performing some of the band’s greatest hits.
Through direct contributions from the competing teams and the raffle of three premium Sennheiser headsets, RMB 15,625 was raised for local orphanage, Alenah’s home. Children from Alenah’s home were there to pick the winners of the Sennheiser headsets available for the raffle and thoroughly enjoyed their day out.
