The first ever international women minifootball competition started today as part of the Mini4EU Cities Festival, in Székesfehérvár. The Women Cities Cup saw eight teams – from Romania, Serbia, Hungary, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Croatia, Slovakia and Moldova – fighting for a place in Saturday’s semi-finals.
The teams were placed into two groups and played all three of their group-stage matches during the joyful and sunny day. In Group A, local Csepel started the day confidently with a 5:0 match against Šabac, but the other two teams of the group proved to be too strong for the Hungarians.
Brussels won the group almost effortlessly, finishing the day with 7 points. The Belgian women beat Šabac 5:0 and group’s second Drobeta 3:0, before drawing their last match 2:2 with Csepel.
In group B, Ciobruciu finished the day in unbeaten fashion, while Prešov came second behind the Moldavian team with six points. The Slovakian team will meet Brussels in tomorrow’s semi-finals, while on another pitch, Ciobruciu will face Romanian Drobeta trying to secure a place in the final.
The final of the Women Cities Cup will be played at 1.15 pm. on Saturday, the 29th of September.
