COLAS Team Cup - qualification five-a-side soccer
June 30, 2017
This year, Mr. Hervé Le Bouc, CEO and Chairman of the COLAS Management Board, decided to create a worldwide in-house sports event, called Colas Team Cup. Two sport were chosen - five-a-side soccer and running.
Three teams from the COLAS group in the Czech Republic were registered in the five-a-side soccer. The first football match took place on June 28th, 2017 between the team from Čermák a Hrachovec a.s. and Klíčovský Arzenál from COLAS CZ, a.s. The match was held at Sportcentrum Prosek, Litvínovská 500, Prague 9 - Prosek.
Both teams arrived before 15:00, Arzenál even earlier to train and familiarize themselves with the surface. Unfortunately, at the time of the start of the game, the storm came and it was raining, therefore, we were afraid that we would have to postpone the tournament, but fortunately, at about 3:30 PM, the sun started shining and the rain stopped so everyone was glad to go to the pitch. The match lasted 2 x 15 minutes, the referee came from the ranks of the staff. The mood was great, some fans harshly encouraged their favorites ... And it was worth watching. The team of Arzenál also included women who fought fiercely for every ball and in some cases used other weapons successfully... The event was also ensured in safety respect since Petr Vencl, OHS manager, supervised the game all the time. The match was "almost" balanced, however the team of Čermák a Hrachovec (Jan Fröhlich, Marek Dajčl, Jan Vašak, Vít Kučera, Tomáš Robb, Petr Zachar and Lukáš Sláma) eventually won the match and will play against the 3rd registered team after the summer holidays. The winner will then take part in the Central European Tournament, which will take place in Prague. The sole winner from Central Europe area will then qualify for Paris and will represent this area in February 2018 there. We firmly believe that this will be the Czech Republic team.
Both teams came together in a friendly session after the match to exchange their impressions. The mood was excellent. The teams also agreed to repeat a similar action soon.
