Playing for children with Jakub Błaszczykowski!
On 21 and 22 June this year, another edition of Summer Kuba Cup was held. This football tournament is dedicated to children and young people who love football. For many years, Drutex has been supporting various sports initiatives, and has once again become one of the partnering sponsors of this football event.
The tournament is organised by the Ludzki Gest Foundation run by Jakub Błaszczykowski. This year, participants included elementary school boys and girls, born between the years 2004–2006. Matches were played by 32 unprofessional teams, each with 3 players in the field + 4 substitutions.
The competition had a formula similar to the one of the Champions League (32 teams competing in 8 groups of 4 teams, where each team was randomly selected as one of the football clubs playing in the 2016/2017 Champions League).
After the tournament, the best players could participate in various attractions and received numerous awards. The event’s hosts made sure everybody was full of positive energy and had a great time.
“We are enthusiastic about getting involved in any activities promoting sports and a healthy lifestyle, especially among young people. Our few years of cooperation with Kuba Błaszczykowski have proven to be a success. He is a great man and an excellent player. We are proud to be part of this event run by his foundation, and we supported all the players and admire their enthusiasm, persistence and fighting spirit. These are the qualities you need both in the field and in business,” said Adam Leik, Marketing Manager at Drutex.
