Long-standing tradition in professional soccer
For years, the renowned tournament in the Deutschlandhalle had been firmly established in professional soccer. However, with the Bundesliga business becoming more and more demanding and the Europa League and Champions League gaining importance, the winter break has long become too short to hold a tournament in which Bundesliga pros can participate. This is why the legendary tournament was renamed into FlexStrom Cup and kicked off with a new concept in 2010. The next Cup will take place in Berlin on 8 January 2011. In the preliminary round, six renowned teams consisting of merited players traditionally connected to their clubs will compete against each other. In two groups with three teams each, the players will fight to qualify for the next round. The four best teams enter the semi-finals and mark the beginning of the tournament's knockout round. Active soccer players and ex-players of 1.FC Köln (2010 champion), Hertha BSC Berlin, 1. FC Union Berlin, Bayer 04 Leverkusen, Werder Bremen and Galatasaray Istanbul participate in the tournament. "More than 6,100 spectators watched the 2010 tournament in the Max-Schmeling Halle. In 2011, the number is expected to be even greater. And of course, we will be on site to cheer on the players", Ulrich Dietzel is pleased to comment on the presence of www.diedruckerei.de in the tournament.
