PluSport Football Tournament in Solothurn
In cooperation with the Football Club Solothurn, on September 9, 2023, PluSport held a tournament in Solothurn for the first time. Parallel to the tournament for adults, children and young people with disabilities played their own tournament. 45 children and young people from different regions of Switzerland took part in the event on this sunny Saturday. The joy was great to play the last grass tournament of the season. After a joint warm-up, the parties started punctually at 10 a.m.
The Special Kickers Lucerne quickly emerged as the favourite team. Five matches were played before, and another five parties were played after the lunch break. In the end, the favourite team prevailed and won the tournament by gaining the most points. The second place was hard-fought. The Ponte Kickers Windisch, despite having the same total of points and the same goal difference as the third-placed team, were able to celebrate their runner-up position because they won the direct encounters.
PluSport expressed gratitude to the People’s Sport Foundation for the financial support, which facilitates the participation of children and youth in football, their preferred sport. The joyful and beaming expressions demonstrate and affirm the significance of providing everyone with access to exercise and sports.
