The anticipation is building with just a week to go until the 6-a-side World Cup in Essen. The purpose-built stadium proudly stands tall in the heart of Kennedyplatz Square, a sight to behold. As the picture above shows, it promises an unforgettable experience for the fans.
With a capacity to hold around 4,000 enthusiastic supporters, the stadium is ready to host two remarkable events. First, the women’s Socca Cup will grace the field, followed by the men’s World Cup. The atmosphere is electric, as players eagerly await the first whistle.
Tournament Director Tom Nash can’t contain his excitement as he praises the local organising committee for their tremendous efforts. “The local organising committee has done an outstanding job in bringing this vision to life. The stadium looks spectacular, and the facilities are top-notch. We couldn’t have asked for a better team behind this project,” Nash said.
As the days count down, the anticipation continues to build. The Stadium for the 6-a-side World Cup carries on the tradition of bringing football directly to the people. Following the successful 2018 World Cups held in Lisbon, Crete, and Budapest, the decision to construct this purpose-built stadium in Kennedyplatz Square is a testament to the sport’s unwavering popularity and commitment to creating memorable experiences for fans.
The action is all set to begin on the 2nd of June, at 9 pm, with the hosts taking on Cyprus. Excitement is building throughout the city.
