Impressions of the Celtics Cup 2015

The Celtics Cup 2015 that will be held annually from now on took place in Klagenfurt, Austria for the very first time on Saturday the 12th September 2015 with maybe 100 visitors.  About three weeks ago we have reported about the tournament and now we want to present you the actual impressions.

As we already reported, the four participating teams were:
1. Carinthian Celtics
2. Graz Gladiators
3. Olimpija Lacrosse
4. Zagreb Bulldogs

The Zagreb Bulldogs from Croatia were the team with the longest journey, namely about 230 kilometers.

Additionally to the 6 games on this day, in which also old rivals such as the Zagreb Bulldogs and the Olimpija Lacrosse faced each other, there was also a tombola, in which the tickets were sold out until lunchtime. The first prize went to Stefan Odreitz of the Graz Gladiators. He won a spa weekend for two. The second and third prizes went to Stefanie Vavti and Christoph Warmuth. They each won a hotel voucher for one person.
After the first two games the “Fastest Shot Contest” took place during the lunch break, which was sponsored by Captain Lax. Matthias Vavti of the Carinthian Celtics won it, with a speed of 138 km/h. So he was allowed to take the 15€-voucher home.
After the last game the suckling pig was already served. In the evening began the great announced Award Night of the Celtics Cup 2015. This year’s winners of awards were:
Thomas Hribernig, Martin Hribernik, Lukas Ertler, Lukas Pfeiler, Manuel Lexer, Martin Appe, Philipp Preschern, Harry Schellander and Dino Gregoric.

After six exciting games the Olimpija lacrosse was declared as the winners of the day after the direct comparison, because the Olimpija lacrosse and the Carinthian Celtics had equal points and equal goal difference.


The Celtics Cup 2015 was a success! There were great games, a fantastic atmosphere, wonderful players, a super community and so on. We think it is very good, that this tournament was started and we hope you are looking forward to the next year just like us!
