Another Home Team Win 04/05/2014

Latin Formation © Aachener Zeitung - Steindl The unwritten rule was upheld once more when the panel of seven Adjudicators determined the European Latin Formation Champions. "The  home team always wins!"

While Düren does not have its own formation team, the cities of Aachen and Düsseldorf are both sufficiently close to make for an extended home identity.

FG Aachen/Düsseldorf, GER, kept the upper hand this time around. GGC Bremen, GER, the current World Champions who won their title six months ago in Bremen, came in second. Vera Tyumen, RUS, ended up in third.

The full results should soon become available! Here are the (still unofficial) results of the final.

1. FG TSZ Aachen / TD TSC Düsseldorf Rot-Weiß, GER 1 2 2 1 1 3 3
2. Grün-Gold-Club Bremen, GER 4 1 1 3 3 2 1
