In Austria, we organised a Pulmonary Hypertension Charity Tournament on Sunday 28.4.2013 for World PH Day, when football enthusiasts played for a good cause and supported the Pulmonary Hypertension Self-Help Group.
Our tournament took place at 1:00 pm at the Westside Soccer Arena in Hütteldorf, Vienna. All the teams started by playing in the group stages in order to reach the final.
FSV Hietzing and Team Lungenhochdruck (PH) met in the final. After an exciting game, FSV Hietzing beat Team Lungenhochdruck 6:5.
In the battle for third place, Sportfreunde K11 beat Sportfreunde Amateure, again by 6 goals to 5.
After the match there was a presentation ceremony and an enjoyable get-together in the canteen of the Westside Soccer Arena.
It was an enjoyable sporting afternoon in aid of a good cause and we are already looking forward to the next Pulmonary Hypertension Charity Tournament.
