The day before, the 40th World Peace Indoor Soccer Tournament 2022 among policemen and firefighters was held in the Netherlands. Two Ukrainian teams “IPA Avangard Safety Ukraine” (in the 35+ category) and “IPA Rivne Fire Brigade Ukraine” (in the general men’s category) took part in the tournament.

Before one of the games, representatives of the Ukrainian delegation drew attention to the fact that in the hall there is a symbol of Russia, which unleashed a full-scale war in Ukraine. The Ukrainians pointed out that the symbols of the aggressor country are unacceptable, and under the pressure of our compatriots, the organizers of the competition tore down the flag of the Russian Federation. 

Fans in the stands of the sports complex in Eibergen supported the actions of the technical staff and shouted “Glory to Ukraine!” and “Putin is f***ing!” the Russian flag was taken out of the hall.

It should be noted that both Ukrainian teams won the competition. 

The “World Peace Indoor Soccer Tournament 2022” trophy in the 35+ category was won by the “IPA Avangard Safety Ukraine” team, which defeated the Polish team “State Fire Service Poland” in the final. 

“This is a victory for Ukraine, for the Armed Forces of Ukraine!” – wrote on his Facebook page patrol policeman Taras Pryslupskyi, who plays for the “IPA Avangard Safety Ukraine” team.

In the men’s general category, the Ukrainian team “IPA Rivne Fire Brigade Ukraine” won, beating “State Fire Service Poland” in the final with a score of 3:0.

Thus, for the first time in forty cup draws, Ukraine is winning two championship trophies at once.
