British clubs receive tournament invite
 Women's Football News 30 Nov 2012
 
Arsenal and Glasgow City have been invited to compete in an international 'Meet the Champions' Indoor Tournament by German side FFC Turbine Potsdam in February. 
 
To celebrate Potsdam's 40th Anniversary, the two British sides are amongst seven Champions hand-picked by Potsdam to play in the eight-team competition, the first tournament of its kind ever to be hosted by the German giants.
 
The exclusive invitation-only tournament will be made up of some of Europe's top sides and is an impressive invitation list, containing three UEFA Women's Champions League Winners, including the current holders - French Champions Olympique Lyonnais.
 
The invited teams are:
 
FFC Turbine Potsdam (Germany)
Glasgow City (Scotland)
Olympique Lyonnais (France)
Arsenal Ladies (England)
ROA Oslo (Norway)
Brondy IF (Denmark)
AC Sparta Praha (Czech Republic)
SV Neulengbach (Austria)
 
 
The tournament will take place on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd February in the brand new indoor MBS-Arena Potsdam and will be played in front of a crowd of 2,000.
 
Commenting on the tournament, Glasgow City Club Manager, Laura Montgomery said: "To be invited to such an exclusive and high standard tournament is fantastic and very flattering for our club. If you look at the potential participants it is incredibly exciting with three Champions League winners in there alone.
 
"For our players to be able to test themselves against this level of competition in pre-season is simply fantastic and I am sure they will enjoy every minute of it.
 
"We will be playing in a very unusual arena of indoor football, which will be a brand new challenge for us, but we know that this type of indoor football is very popular in Europe, particularly in Germany. It will be 8-a-side on a pitch and with rules we have obviously never faced before, but this will be at the start of our pre-season and will be a key stage in our fitness preparations for the beginning of the new campaign in March.
 
"To be able to take the girls to Germany for four days for this level of competition at this time in pre-season is an opportunity we could never turn down."
