image: SCCE’s Winning Team took the Gold! SCCE’s Winning Team took the Gold!

- Yes, we want to finally win this tournament, wrote SCCE’s team captain Pelle Lindberg a few days before this year’s International Chambers' of Commerce Football Tournament powered by Danske Bank kicked off at Maarjamäe Staadion in Tallinn, Saturday 28 May. And indeed, this year it happened; SCCE took the gold!! Good job and very well done!!!


As always, Pelle’s pre-Tournament message to the players also focused on team spirit and teamwork:


- But, the real victory we achieve is if we all have fun and play as one team and that we at the end can look at each other and state that we did what we could and we had great fun. And that, we have done every year so far! As always, we make the tactics prior to the actual games but no matter what tactics we apply, we need to remember that we come as one TEAM, we PLAY as one TEAM and we leave as one TEAM, wrote Pelle.


SCCE’s winning team consisted of team players from our members Bigbank, DHL, Ericsson, Stoneridge and the Swedish Embassy in Tallinn; Per Lindberg, Allan Illipe, Valentin Bnatov, Valentin Naumov, Aleksandr Tsingisser, Edoardo Boscarolo, Pontus Hermansson, Emil Brorsson, Tarmo Künnapuu, Lars Hillar, and Rasmus Widing.


Including SCCE, eight countries were represented in the Tournament; Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Holland, and the UK. Apart from losing to France and Denmark in the group stage, SCCE didn’t have any major problems to reach play off. With a 10 – 5 positive goal difference and 13 points earned, we went to the semi final and won over Finland with 1 – 0. And, 1 – 0 also became the result in the final against France!


This was the seventh consecutive edition of the International Chambers' of Commerce Football Tournament. The first year, in 2010, SCCE took the 2nd place, in 2011 and 2012 we came in on 4th place, in 2013 3rd, and in 2014 and 2015 4th place again.


On behalf of the entire SCCE, I congratulate our team to the gold! And of course my congratulations also go to France who took the silver, Denmark who took the bronze, and all the other teams participating this year; all of you made this Saturday to a real football fiesta! Many very special thanks also go to our members and partners who turned up and cheered for our team during the day, among them Yvonne Leipalu and several of her pupils from Svenska Skolföreningen i Estland!
