TRIMET Cup | Plant soccer tournament in Voerde

Jun 15, 2019 | On Saturday, June 15, 2019, eleven teams from various TRIMET Aluminium SE plants met in Voerde for a soccer tournament with international participants. Eleven teams from five locations of the aluminium manufacturer competed for the TRIMET Cup, including three teams from the aluminium smelter in Voerde and a team from Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne in France, where TRIMET also operates an aluminium smelter. The coveted trophy was won by the French team from Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne, who will be given the opportunity to defend the title at the next TRIMET Cup in 2021.

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.
