Heydar Aliyev Cup - 2012, Austria
2012-05-12 - Vienna
The Heydar Aliyev Cup football tournament organized by Odlar Yurdu continued in Austria. Teams from Azerbaijan, Turkey, Austria, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Georgia and Germany participated in the tournament, which is dedicated to the memory of Heydar Aliyev, the National Leader.
After Romania and the Czech Republic, the Austrian capital city of Vienna became the next destination for the football tournament. In the event, in which local students and representatives of sports associations participate alongside our compatriots who are studying or permanently residing in the country, eight teams speaking different languages, demonstrate their skills. The significance of the tournament was clear as the opening ceremony was attended by our country’s ambassador to Austria.
In the opinion of the guests, the tournament is of great significance in terms of strengthening solidarity between young international students in Austria. Such events have a positive influence on Azerbaijan’s image.
The tournament, which was tense, ended in victory for the Georgian team.
