image: Congratulations Georgia! Congratulations Georgia!

Tight, intense, teamwork and a lot of goals! That’s the Saturday 17 March football match between the Georgian Society in Estonia and SCCE in eight words and the match ended with a 10-7 victory for Georgia.

- Some might say they don’t understand the beauty of the most passionate game in the World. Some might say they don’t understand the point of running around in a very cold indoor hall in shorts in mid-March, kicking a ball. But all those who were there this Saturday, witnessed the passion for the sport we all love and together with our Georgian friends, we showed how fun it is to play football and how this sport brings people together, says SCCE’s football team captain Pelle Lindberg and concludes:

- No matter the result, the importance of meeting new people and enlarging your network will always be there. I sincerely thank the Georgian team for the challenge and for the spirit they showed and me and my players fully enjoyed the day. We will meet again!

- One of the beautiful aspects of the game was that it allowed to play together 60-year-old player with 13 years old and it was fun and exciting. Georgian team won 10-7, but scoring was not the only thing that mattered on that day. Smart, creative, heads-up play was just as
important to players and spectators. Smiles were on every player's face when their team scored a point and some even screamed in delight at the top of the lungs. Soccer is an international sport and this match gave another great chance to learn more about other cultures, comments the Georgian football team captain Zaza Tsereteli.

On behalf of the SCCE, I congratulate the Georgian team to the victory and look forward to the next time we can meet for a match.


Kristiina Sikk - SCCE Ombudsman
