歐洲撞球協會聯盟新聞官、克拉根福市市長、克恩頓州州長與奧地利撞球協會會長近日在奧地利的克拉根福市共同招開了記者發布會。

在克恩頓州州長、克拉根福市市長與奧地利撞球協會等多方支持之下,克拉根福市正式宣布今年第五站的歐巡賽將於10月在當地的克拉根福體育場 (Sportpark Klagenfurt) 開打。在此之前,歐巡賽自1999年起每年均有一站在奧地利進行,而自2010年起至去年為止,則已連續在薩爾茨堡州 蓬高地區聖約翰 (St. Johann im Pongau) 的 Alpina Sports & Wellness 酒店舉辦 7年,今年賽事則將在下週 5月18-21日登場。當日與會出席發布會的有 Jasmin Ouschan, Albin OuschanMario He 與 Maximilian Lechner 4位地主球員。

克拉根福 (Klagenfurt) 坐落於克拉根福谷地的韋爾特湖畔 (Wörthersee),其為奧地利克恩頓邦的首府,奧地利的第六大城市! 如果說到奧地利撞球,率先讓人聯想到的也就非Ouschan姊弟莫屬。倆人無疑地是現今奧地利撞球的指標性球員,而克拉根福更是兩人從小出生長大的地方,相信對他們來說此次賽事的舉辦將更加地別具意義。
