FZJ soccer tournament 2018

Success for IEK-1 team

Jülich, 31. August 2018 – The IEK-1 football team, put together by coach Ralf Steinert, took part in the football tournament organized by the DocTeam of the FZJ for the second time. After the 3rd place in 2017 the expectations were high. This year 11 teams took part divided into two groups.

The first three games of the IEK-1 team against PGI, Biometrics and IEK-6 ended goalless 0:0. Against last year's winner FZJ Ausbildung the first victory was finally reached in the fourth game with 2:0. Also the last game in the preliminary round against Planen and Bauen ended 0:0, which was sufficient to reach the semi-finals. In the semi-final against IEK-2 and in the final against Planen und Bauen the IEK-1 team had a significant increase in performance. Against IEK-2 our team won 1:0 and could extend the victory against Planen und Bauen with 2:0, whereby the tournament was won.

The victory was mainly due to the cohesion and the joy of playing of the 14 players (13 men and one lady) from all departments and areas of the institute. Also the large staff of supporters of the institute contributed significantly to the success and the good atmosphere. Ultimately, the tournament was not only a sporting success, but also substantially promoted the good cohesion of the employees. The monthly training rounds will be continued. Let's see what's in next year.

Last but not least we thank the FZJ-Doc organization team for the excellent organization.
