4 COUNTRIES, 3 OPPONENTS, 2 FINALISTS & 1 WINNER!

Werder Bremen got their names on the trophy today as the first winners of the Audi quattro Cup presented by SalzburgerLand at the Red Bull Arena.

The German Bundesliga club won the final 3-2 on penalties in front of 10,832 spectators against FC Valencia (with the tie ending goalless after 45 minutes).
 

Red Bulls finish third


In the third-place play-off, FC Red Bull Salzburg won 2-0 against Southampton of the Premier League thanks to goals from Havard Nielsen and new signing Dimitri Oberlin.

After their 0-4 defeat at the start of the tournament against Werder Bremen, the Red Bulls were much improved in their second appearance of the day to deservedly win third spot.

Coach Peter Zeidler says:

There are two big lessons for us today. If you play football in such an ambitious way that we do, you can’t forget the basics. The basics are being compact, closing down, the defence stepping up when you go forward and having a certain defensive mentality. The second match was then very refreshing and you saw a lot of youthful enthusiasm in our team. That’s the way we want to play, even if not everything was perfect. We know that we have a few things to work on over the coming weeks. Training always starts in thinking about the fundamentals of successful football and training for that.

The sponsors of the Audi quattro Cup powered by SalzburgerLand were also very pleased with the successful tournament.

Thomas Beran, brand manager of Audi Austria, says:

Football plays a very important role in the global sport sponsoring strategy of Audi. The Audi quattro Cup, with its world-class footballers and top clubs, a compact format and an exciting side programme, is a real festival of football. As a premium partner [since 2005] and official car partner of FC Red Bull Salzburg, it is an honour for us to lend our name to the tournament as title sponsor. Four clubs, four matches – we knew it had to be called the Audi quattro Cup.

Leo Bauernberger, CEO of SalzburgerLand Tourismus, is delighted at the good atmosphere in the stadium and is hoping that the tournament becomes a permanent fixture, saying:

The Audi quattro Cup 2015 was an important way for SalzburgerLand to promote itself and an outstanding opportunity to position the region even better as a training base for international football clubs.
