The second FootGolf World Cup started on Tuesday with the practice day, a press conference and the opening ceremony. The biggest FootGolf tournament has just started.
Javier de Ancizar, president of the Argentine federation opened the press conference after the practice day.
”I am so happy, that we are here in the second World Cup. It was a difficult year from the announcement that said we were going to organise the biggest FootGolf event ever. I want to say thank you for everybody who was involved in our long journey.”
Gábor Gelencsér, vice-president of the FIFG, the organizer of the first World Cup, told to the press, that the facilities and course were fantastic.
„We came here to defend our title. The weather conditions are better for the Argentine players than the others who come from Europe. They have world class players, and the British, Swiss and US footgolfers have the chance to grab the gold medal. I am delighted seeing, how many press workers came to here to broadcast our biggest event. This sport is growing from week to week, there are countries, who applied yet to get involved in the FIFG’s plans.”
Javier de Ancizar added, the international federation could join the Sportaccord, but it needed more time.
“We want to join to them, but we have to organize a lot of international events, we need more countries, and so on. The final goal is to join to the Olympic family.”
The individual competition starts on Wednesday morning. Every flight has a marshall during the game to control the rules.
