Metz was free in the opening ECLW round, thus it opens ongoing season in the Round 2 against defending champion Fenerbahce (October 9th, 19:30 CET). Turkish club was stretched to full distance by Hungarian Postas in the Round 1, but now they are encouraged by newly crowned individual European champion Elizabeta SAMARA. Home side has former gold medalist in Single Event, WU Jiaduo.
“It is always a great honor to receive Turkish team Fenerbahce Istanbul at home. In this case we play our first match in ECLW group against the actual champion. Fu YU was in semi final of European Championships in Russia and Elizabeta SAMARA is the winner! Congratulations and respect! Big fight and event for sure will be held this Friday at Metz”, emphasized Philippe BORDES, President of METZ TT.
