Having a couple representing a city or a country is one thing, having eight is - consequently - eight times one.

The media impact of the European Latin Formation in the cities and countries with the biggest Latin formation tradition (as well as the strongest teams) was again considerable.

An international press review reveals that media exposure levels were again high in Germany, Lithuania and Russia.
