The Posidonia Shipsoccer Tournament, the unique soccer event that brings together the worldwide shipping community, concluded the Posidonia Games on June 3rd at the spectacular Star Sport Club, in Athens’ southern seafront suburb of Voula.

A total of 28 teams comprising 280 players battled it out at the venue’s synthetic-turfed, five-a-side pitches during an event which drew hundreds of spectators. Nico Koumbatis, Managing Director of the tournament’s main sponsor, Swift Marine, said: “Posidonia ShipSoccer Tournament is a truly exceptional event that gives participating companies the opportunity to promote the values of sportsmanship and team building. It is wonderful to meet with so many shipping professionals from around the world in such an extraordinary venue next to Athens’ Riviera seafront, to network, play football and relax ahead of the busy Posidonia week.”

George Paleokrassas, from Watson, Farley & Williams, said: “This is our first time at the Posidonia ShipSoccer Tournamernt and I must admit that we are very happy with the organisation and the quality of the event as well as with the spirit of competition between all participants. We have a lot of clients who participate in the event which is an excellent networking opportunity. For example, our team had the opportunity to train together for weeks before the event and today we have the support of many of our colleagues from the office.”

Sotiris Spathis, Drew Marine, Sales Manager stated: “The soccer event is really exceptional, it gets better and better each passing year. It is very important to see so many participants from the shipping community coming together in this great venue.
