From 17 – 19 July 2015, the 28th International Zoo Football Tournament took place. Zoo Berlin took part for the third time in a row. This year's hosts: The Hanover Adventure Zoo.
in the first round we played against Zoo Karlsruhe (1:0), Zoo Leipzig (1:0) and Zoo Frankfurt (0:1). The qualifying round presented us with some very strong opponents. We didn't manage to come out of every game as winners...
We were much more successful here. The Berlin team beat both the Basel and Gelsenkirchen teams 2:0. We managed a draw against the hosts (0:0).
After a glorious victory in the semi-finals against Zoo Cologne, our team ultimately took their place in the final. Our final opponents were the host zoo, Hannover. Unfortunately, the team from Zoo Berlin were beat by the team from Hannover in the penalty shootout. At least we were runner's up!
Berlin, Berlin, we're off to Berlin!
And as they say "After the game is before the game" - we are already looking forward expectantly to the 29th Zoo Football Tournament next year. This will be in Gelsenkirchen and 2017 will see it being held in Berlin. All zoo teams will be roaring in chorus "Berlin, Berlin, we're off to Berlin!"
We're already looking forward to it!
Zoo Berlin are runner's up at the Football
