Olympia will be the first British team to enter the Annliz Cup when they compete in the pre-season tournament in Sweden this weekend.
League champions last season, Olympia’s women will compete in the Elite Class against top teams from Sweden’s Allsvenskan and Division 1 leagues. Teams such as CSM Bucuresti and TTH Holsterbro played in this cup last weekend in the Super Elite class.
Olympia’s coach Aurelian Gug says the Cup will be a good chance to see how pre-season training has gone. ”It will be an intense weekend as we will play four games in three days. We have had an intensive pre-season programme over the summer, so this tournament will be a good opportunity to test our team play against some strong opposition from the Swedish Allsvenskan and Division 1”.
The tournament takes place on Saturday and Sunday.
