Magdala Claim First APP-APPL Tournament

APPL Rules in Force

On Friday 1 December, the Final of the first APP-APPL tournament took place in Pilar, Argentina. This tournament was the first of its kind to use the amended APPL tournament rules. Eight teams entered the tournament and fought for the coveted 20 Goal prize. Ultimately, Magdala came out victorious in the Final against Don Urbano Las Overas in a fast-paced match. Following the match, APPL creator Javier Tanoira said, “This is the first time we tried the rules in a competitive tournament and the outcome was great. We might have to revise a rule or two, like the format of the foul – mostly to see how we can organise the rest of the players, not the one who fouled or the one who was fouled, but the remaining six. We just need to tweak certain things. Everyone played really well and showed they were motivated. We are very grateful to the Association for their support and to Pilarchico for the fields. We hope to continue the tournaments in the autumn and spring seasons.”
