TRIMET Cup | Plant soccer tournament in Voerde
In 2017, the tradition of a soccer tournament between the various TRIMET locations was revived. That year, the team from Voerde won the cup and, as defending champion, hosted this year’s tournament on the Lower Rhine. For the players, coaches and some 300 spectators, the day was above all a big family celebration.
“It was a great tournament with some outstanding soccer. There was a touch of Champions League atmosphere in Voerde with a team of colleagues from the country of the reigning world soccer champion,” commented Dr. Till Reek, Plant Manager of the TRIMET plant in Voerde, with a twinkle in his eye. He thanked the organizational team in particular for the successful event. Employees of the Voerde aluminium smelter provided for the physical well-being of players and fans with kebabs, beverages and cake. Part of the net proceeds will be donated to Löwenzahn & Pusteblume e.V. in Wesel, which is dedicated to pediatric palliative care.
