IMG 3875As part of the European elections, the municipalities of Dinkelland (Netherlands) and Nordhorn (Germany) held a festive gathering on Saturday afternoon. Together with the cross-border club known as JCI WJ Noabers, a soccer match was also organized – and the Emsland Group had a team in the running. The gathering was intended to promote Europe and the forthcoming European Parliament election.


After the mayors of the Dinkelland and Nordhorn municipalities each held interesting talks about Europe and the importance of the upcoming election, the soccer tournament got started under sunny skies on the grounds of the Ijssalon de Ijskuip in Denekamp.


Altogether, six teams from the Netherlands and Germany played against each other for eight minutes apiece on a specially constructed soccer field. With its strong, six-player team, the Emsland Group won the first two games. But in the end, it was only the winner of the tournament, the Rosen Europe B.V. company, that managed to beat the Emsland squad by a close score of 2:1. Winning and losing aside, the name of the game was fun, and so the evening ended according to Dutch tradition: in a very “gregarious” manner.
