Schwabish Gmünd – June 13, 2018 – Footvolley’s blooming squads expected to shine in Germany this weekend for the 5th edition of the Sparkassen Footvolley Cup. Teams were drawn into three groups and six will earn an automatic berth into the Quarter Finals set to take place on Saturday. The additional two spots will be filled by two match-ups involving the 3rd place and best 4th place squads.
German favorites Dennis Weber/Roman Uhr will face the newly inducted European squad Amir Zohar/Ron Ben Ishai (ISR) in one of the highlight first round matches and must also overcome the strong Portuguese squad Juliano Silva/Gustavo Cavaco and Norwegians Kristoffer Arskog/Magnus Humeno to move into the playoff rounds.
Last year’s finalists Antonio Aurino/Jesse Van Oord (NED) come back to prove they are still the team to beat and will face the talented French squad Adrian Locicero/Lucas Cervera, before challenging the beloved German Star Mo Obeid with an interim partner Patrick Siebert. Raimund Wenning/Christopher Schieck (GER) and Simon Saurugger/Jakob Wellenhoff (AUT) complete the group.
The most even group includes upcoming German prodigy Mitch Weber along with his partner Jakob Domke, the highly technical Greeks, Yiannis Tsouris/Harris Papaspyrou, the experienced Swiss Nils Fehr/Michele Potita and the French Manu Pisani/Jean Felix Fideli. Every point will count tremendously as details will define what teams will remain following group stage matches.
