Friday, December 16, 2022, 1 p.m. – the starting signal for the first official DONAT foosball tournament. The nine teams started the tournament with a snack and were freshly fortified. In the group phase, three teams competed against each other and tried to collect as many points as possible in their matches.
Only the first-placed team from each group and the best runner-up from all groups could progress to the semi-finals. So the pressure was high. The game mode in the group stage was “best-of-three”. The first team to score six goals in a round wins the round. If a team has won two rounds, it has won the game.
After all the preliminary round matches had taken place, it quickly became clear which teams would be in the semi-finals. In addition to the teams Brothers in Law, 1st place and Dynamo Dosenbier, Team Heul leise qualified for the semi-finals with the best goal difference.
The four teams played exciting and nerve-wracking matches. The eliminated teams joined in the excitement and cheered for every goal.
The match for third place and the final went the full three rounds for the first time. The first team to score 10 goals won the round. Both matches were initially tied 1:1 until the winner emerged.
The tension between the teams could be felt throughout the room and it wasn’t just the players who were sweating, but also their colleagues who were cheering and cheering on the two exciting matches. In the end, the 1st place team won third place. In the grand final, the Brothers in Law team narrowly came out on top and won the first official DONAT foosball tournament.
Thanks to all the teams who took part in the tournament with lots of fun and enjoyment and, above all, fair play. Congratulations to 3rd place 1st place, 2nd place Howl quietly and 1st place Brothers in Law . All winners of the first three places received glass trophies as prizes.
