The love of sports brings people together. Already weeks in advance, Keyweb employees trained intensively as preparation for this event.

On July 5, 2015, about 240 motivated players met in the youth training center of the FC Rot-Weiß Erfurt. Warming up was unnecessary at 35 °C (95 °F), so the matches could start punctually at 10:00 a.m. and the 19 teams of well-known companies from Erfurt started passing the ball to one another in the sweaty heat.

As official technology partner of the FC Rot-Weiß Erfurt soccer team, Keyweb AG organized the 1st FC Rot-Weiß Erfurt sponsor tournament - and with great success. Since early July 2015, Keyweb belongs to the Club of 100 and will support FC RWE in the future. Among other things, the development of an online RWE TV format is being planned to keep the fans up to date with professional videos of press events and business meetings and, naturally, to also report live from the players' cabin.

In the opening match, Keyweb and KNV Logistik GmbH played against one another. True to Franz Beckenbauer's motto "Well, there is only one outcome: victory, tie or defeat!”, dribbling was played amicably and fairly from one round to the next. In the final analysis, the urge to move and have fun drove out the incentive to win and reach the victory podium. Friends and family were invited as the 12th man to motivate and cheer their players loudly to keep the ball.

The scorching heat and impending start of the week were not able to stop the Sunday exercise. From morning to late afternoon, men and women ran after the leather. The Keyweb team won a respectable 11th place. On third place, closely followed by the players of the Autohaus Peter SV Bielen 1926 Association, were the self-appointed RWE Büro players. The 1st FC Jüttner team defied the weather and heavy legs and proudly conquered the first place.

The evening started with a welcome shower and brief breather, followed by the subsequent after-show party in the Steigerwald stadium. In its VIP area, the Wernesgrüner Lounge, the celebration was extensive, the best were honored and secretly raved by Keyweb's amateur athletes: Floodlight, the crowd becomes crazy, a La-Ola wave breaks its way slowly through the fan masses. The excitement increases, the match has been decided and the cup handed over … in the middle of the Steigerwald stadium!

The renovation of Thuringia's second largest stadium should be completed in 2016. It should shine in the colors red and white according to the colors of FC Rot-Weiß Erfurt, Thuringia's state colors and those of the German Athletics Association (DLV). A second sponsor tournament in the home stadium of the FC Rot-Weiß Erfurt. That would be something.

In these temperatures, the ice cream cart certainly belonged to the personal highlight of most attendees. However, it should not be ignored that Keyweb created a successful project out of thin air in a short time together with the FC Rot-Weiß Erfurt, in which team spirit, dedication and sports commitment have priority.

Therefore, Keyweb thanks all participants and helpers with an edited version of the match that shows the highlights of this initial and successful first FC Rot-Weiß Erfurt sponsor tournament.
