The 3rd BWMF Cup ended with the participation of a total of 53 teams from different nationalities, 21 in Under 13 category, 20 in Under 15 male category and 12 Under 15 female category. Nearly 700 players and more than 100 coaches and managers were at the Swimming Pool of Lloret de Mar.
In this third edition we have had teams from Croatia, Scotland, Spain, Hungary, England, Italy and Portugal. It's been almost two hundred matches played, including all categories and more than 2,000 goals scored. We have been enjoying a great semifinal and final, in all categories.
In this third edition, the Olympic championSalvador Gómez "chava" wanted to join us and shared his experiences with participants of the Under 15 tournament. We really appreciate his participation and interest in this competition. His words were certainly a big draw for players.
We also want to thank all the technical staff, referees and volunteers who selflessly worked to ensure that the tournament has been successful. Without them, it would not be possible.
