The April 1st, 2009 will stay forever on fans memories in Switzerland, but it is also an important date for Powerchair Football international development. We will remember for a long time this first official Powerchair game between Vevey and Geneva, the two first structured teams in this country. If Vevey finally won by 6 goals to 2, the main part of this day was somewhere else… . »I would like to thank our fabulous team of Geneva which players have given their best this wednesday versus a strong team of Vevey Eagles, really good today ! A special thought to Danny and Maggie who scored our 2 wonderful goals which filled us with emotion » These are the first words of Matthias Neri, team manager of Geneva after the game, one of the most influent person for the development of Powerchair Football in Switzerland.
This firt game is only a step. It shows the strong will of our Swiss friends to practice our sport in competition in a few. The revenge between Vevey and Geneva is yet planned for the next weeks. We will follow it with attention !
