image: The eighth International Chambers’ of Commerce Football Tournament The eighth International Chambers’ of Commerce Football Tournament

There was nothing wrong with the ball. It was round and nice as footballs tend to be, but it definitely didn’t go where we wanted it to go at this year’s edition of the International Chambers’ of Commerce Football Tournament, Saturday 27 May at Maarjamäe Staadion.

The final outcome of the Tournament was that Britain won, USA came second, Denmark third, France fourth, and Sweden fifth. SCCE congratulates the British Team to the gold this year!

Sweden fought well despite a somewhat decimated team. Two of our players, including Team Captain and goalie Pelle Lindberg, couldn’t participate, and Sebastian, our new player this year, injured his leg and couldn’t play in his planned forward position and took on the goalie role instead.

Thus, SCCE’s fighting spirited team consisted of team players from DHL, Embassy of Sweden, Ericsson, and Greencarrier; Kauri Aaslaid, Valentin Bnatov, Lars Hillar, Allan Illipe (who took on the role as Team Captain this day), Sebastian Koljak, Christopher Kvete, Joonas Laasberg, Aleksandr Tsingisser, and Taimo Tuvi.

Sweden’s games ended with 0-0 against Britain and Denmark, a 2-1 loss against USA, and a 2-0 loss against France.

This was the eighth consecutive edition of the Tournament. The first year, in 2010, SCCE took the 2nd place, in 2011 and 2012 we came in on 4th place, in 2013 3rd, in 2014 and 2015 4th place again, and last year we took the gold.

On behalf of the SCCE, I thank all our team players for their fantastic fighting spirit! 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!
