PASCHEN Soccer Team Hosts Kick Off Cup in Cologne

The Cologne intermural soccer team, founded by XING – the social network and sponsored by PASCHEN will host the Street Soccer Kick Off Cup for the first time. Twenty-four teams competed at the Jahnwiesen in front of the Rhein-Energie Stadium under the eyes of ex-soccer pro Matthias Scherz and Cologne´s mayor, Hans-Werner Bartsch.

The proceeds of the competition were donated to local social projects subsidized by 1.FC-Köln-Stiftung (First FC Cologne Foundation). These exhilarating matches were moderated by Lifestyle-presenter Khadra Sufi and renowned First FC Cologne stadium announcer Michael Trippel.

What’s so special about this three year old Soccer Competition? In every match, there has to be at least one woman playing on each team. As a sponsor, PASCHEN supports the XING Cologne Team in their effort to put women on a level playing field, one goal at time.
