The ATLANTIS CUP children’s football tournament took place on Saturday, 17 August 2019 at the football pitch in Liesek. Our company, the ALUKO Group, was also a partner of this event this year. Children from Orava could once again meet up, play some sport, compete, and above all, make new friends.
Four teams from Klin, Brezovica, Tvrdošín, and of course, the home team from Liesek took part in the tournament. At times, the tension (of course, only sporting) was so thick that you could cut it with a knife. It was unclear until the very last moment which team would raise the winner’s trophy above their heads. In the end, victory was claimed by the Tvrdošín boys, who beat the home favourites Liesek in the final.
One point of interest was the penalty shooting competition, the so-called Liesek Penalty Shoot-Out. Ján Kubolek scored the best penalty, taking home a brand-new mountain bike in return for his impressive performance. The winner’s trophy was handed over by representatives of the ALUKO Group, Peter Kišš and Michal Feranec. Members of the home team also received a brand-new NIKE football kit.
