IGCC Soccer Tournament won by German Team

The Second Annual IGCC (International Group of Chambers of Commerce) soccer tournament was won this year by a 'Germany 2'! A team representing the German Chamber of Commerce in Poland. The team won after a nerve-racking encounter with the Irish Chamber's side - with cheering fans treated to great goals and near-misses. 

We look forward to resolving the matter at the Euro 2014 IGCC tournament. 

The Irish team won the inaugural inter-chamber competition in 2013.
