It is the second Hoffenheim Cup this year and eight teams joined the competition with over 150 SAP players.

The SAP Hoffenheim Cup also represents work-life balance in SAP Labs China.

Special Thanks
“I would like to extend my gratitude and respect to every team who played with passion and to our football fans for their passion. Special thanks to Clas Neumann, Ruicheng Li and MD Office for their great support as always. See you at the 2016 SAP Hoffenheim Cup next year.”

“I never expected that we could get into the current state this year. It seems that luck is always on our side. Thanks particularly to SME team for the sports spirit they presented in the last group match. Given the fact they beat SF, we could advance as group second.  After that, we won the penalty shootout in Semi Final match. To get champion is always not an easy mission, I would like to thank all of our players for their great effort to overcome difficulties like timing, weather, etc. With all that, we finally make another beautiful memory for 2015.”

—- Calvin Guo, SME team
