Russian ATCOs Win World Football Championship For the Sixth Time


Last weekend the team of FSUE “State ATM Corporation”, “Rossiya”, won the VI World Controllers’ Cup, which took place in Miami, USA.

In the semi-finals, our team won a 2:0 victory against the home team, whom they had already beaten at the group stage. Despite the score, it was a rather strenuous game: firstly, because the USA team felt comfortable at home; and secondly, it is always hard to defeat the same rival twice in one tournament.

The struggle in the final was also very tough, resulting in our footballers winning a close 1-0 against their colleagues from “Europe” international team.

Thus, the Russian team have been defending their leadership of the world football championship for six years in a row and remain the only team to have ever won the World Controllers’ Cup.
