Is prepared for the Europeada quarter-finals with the South Tyrol selection: Coach Harald Kiem © Sarah Mitterer

The preliminary round at the 4th edition of the Europeada is history. From Thursday things get down to business, i.e. the quarter-finals are on the agenda. At the traditional culture day of all participating teams in Pilberk/Bleiburg, the pairings were drawn at random on Wednesday.

The South Tyrolean gentlemen were given a feasible but difficult task with the Slovenians in Italy. At 5 p.m., Ritsch & Co. meet a team from the area around Trieste (Friuli) in Zelezna Kapla/Bad Eisenkappel, which is taking part in the Europeada for the first time this year.

In Group E, the Slovenians in Italy won with 7 points from 3 games only thanks to the better goal difference in front of the Serbs in Croatia. They scored 7 goals and conceded only one goal.
