Winners and winners 
There were no losers in this tournament. 

Bad comments
Unfortunately all negative comments will refer to local community and authorities. As we have foresaw local authorities only appeared couple minutes before ending ceremony and only for photos and videos with the athletes. The organizers couldn't avoid "honoring" the local church or the local prefecture, although none of them helped the tournament. Anyway that wasn't so bad and it was part of the ceremony ritual. 
Local media hosted paid advertisements but didn't bother much to promote and/or support the tournament with an article or few lines. 

The worst comment is left for the Municipality and Major of the city. I felt really bad when i realized that the Major of the City wasn't there to honor the players and the teams. 

Hope for the future
Now that the tournament is almost over and most players are partying, there is only hope and wishes for a better future. See you at 4th Eurocup with more players and more teams.
