The Obermaiser Cup adventure is over

After triumphing in the regional cup final, FC Obermais qualified for the national phase of the Italian Amateur Cup. This adventure now ends early for the South Tyrolean top league team.

After the home defeat against Villafranca Veronese, the chances of progressing in the group of three were slim anyway. On Wednesday afternoon the FCO was a guest in the Adriatic seaside resort of Lignano. In the end, the Merano team had to admit defeat against Brian Lignano 0:4. This means that Flavio Toccoli's team is eliminated, as only the first team in the group advances anyway.


The Obermaisern team was missing Lukas Höller and Manuel Brusco, among others. “The opponent was extremely strong today. It's not for nothing that they lead their league by a large margin. “But we held up well at times,” said Christian Platzer, the man in charge of the first team SportNews-Demand. Around 400 spectators attended the game, including 30 Obermaiser Curva Sud fans, which made Platzer particularly happy.
