The Felix Schoeller Group supported this football tournament and its outstanding line-up with a unique photo promotion. Forty-eight teams in the U9 age group played in the second Scotch & Soda and Friends Cup on 11 and 12 April 2015 at TSG Burg Gretesch’s sports grounds. Participants included big international names such as Besiktas Istanbul, Juventus Turin and Arsenal London, junior Bundesliga teams from Bayern Munich, Schalke 04, Bayer Leverkusen, Werder Bremen and tournament champion 1. FC Köln, along with youth teams (7-to 8-year olds) from the Osnabrück area, including the Gretesch hosts, TuS Haste, VfR Voxtrup and TSV Wallenhorst.
On six mini-pitches, tomorrow’s stars produced everything football has to offer: joy and passion for the game, but also disappointment and the odd tear here and there. And Jürgen Fromme, one of Germany’s most acclaimed sports photographers (firo sportfoto), recorded it all for posterity with his thrilling photos. Dülmen-based Jürgen Fromme, who has already won three sports photograph of the year awards, was there at the invitation of the Felix Schoeller Group.
The company and the photographer share a love of high-quality sports photos – it doesn’t matter whether the football is a top notch Bundesliga game or a youth tournament. “I am so moved and fascinated each time by how emotional the kids are. Their misery and joy, and their passion for the game are completely authentic. Time and again I have managed to create impressive, sometimes even award-winning photos, taken at just the right moment and with the right focal length and angle,“ says Fromme, whose photos can be downloaded free of charge at http://privat.firodb.de/app/.
