Lufthansa Consulting joins 2nd World Aviation Football Cup

From 4 – 6 June 2015, Lufthansa Consulting’s football team again participated in the Lufthansa World Aviation Football Cup (WAFC), a charity tournament run by Global Goal e.V. in Frankfurt. 

For the second time, the consultancy was attending the WAFC not only as a participant but also as a sponsor. Lufthansa Consulting’s team captain and Associate Partner Panagiotis Poligenis took part in the opening event and the official captains’ meeting. Together with the other international football teams the Lufthansa Consulting players celebrated the beginning of the three-day event at the welcome party.

This time around, the tournament was held under the patronage of the Manuel Neuer Kids Foundation. All the proceeds and the generous donations raised from the charity tombola will go to the foundation in order to support the “Fussball trifft Kultur” (Football meets Culture) initiative. The project brings people together in the name of sport to enable less fortunate children and adults throughout the world to participate in sporting activities.

The Lufthansa Consulting crew competed for the trophy alongside 23 other domestic and international teams from airlines, airports and aviation-related companies. Even though the consultants did not make it through to the final round, the players fought particularly hard to support the good cause, which is traditionally their main motivation for participating in events of this kind.
