IMG-20190701-WA0034From 20-23 June 2019, IPA Romania, in partnership with IPA Region 2 Galati, organised the 6th edition of the Porto-Franco Cup, a minifootball and Oină tournament in the city of Galati.

18 teams from Romania and Moldova took part in the the minifootbal competition, which was won by the host team, IPA Region 2 Galati.IMG-20190701-WA0033

As every year, the highlight of this tournament, however, was the competition involving our own national sport, Oină (a form of baseball).  4 teams from Romania participated, and the winner of the tournament was the Harghita County Gendarmerie Inspectorate, who were also the winners of the last 4 editions of the Oină Championship of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

All participants in this sports event enjoyed a leisurely trip on the Danube on board of the pleasure boat ‘Kaptan M’, where they were able to socialise and enjoy friendship, with promises made for a future reunion.

So, dear friends, let’s meet up again for the 7th Porto-Franco Cup in 2020!
