Dylan Malpas (goalkeeper of the English national team, recently awarded the best goalkeeper prize): A massive thank you to Jitka Graclíková and Tomáš Bukovský for hosting the 6th Bučovice Blind Football Tournament. By far the best club championships in Europe. Fantastic to play against such strong competitive opposition as well as having a great laugh off the pitch with incredible people who share the same passion for Blind Football as us. Couldn't be any prouder of our lads beating a very strong and talented Bnfit Once Madrid 2-0 in the final by playing some great football. None of this would of been possible without the organisation of Dan James, so a huge thank you for giving us all the opportunity to play and be part of this tournament. Finally a great honour personally to be named the best goalkeeper of this tournament, an achievement that I am very proud off. Thank you once again for having us all, for me events like this really puts the love back in playing blind football!!!!!!

Andreas Sorsky (coach of the Vienna team): From 30 June to 1 July 2018, we took part in a top tournament with our B1 team. Many thanks to the organizers of the 6th annual Bučovice Blind Football Cup 2018. The tournament was very well organized and planned with great passion and professionalism. Our players could not only find new friends but also gain a lot of knowledge and experience. The results were not what they should be ;) But we have left a good impression that we can play against high-quality rivals, better results will soon come. In this respect, we are going with great hope for the summer break and with fresh energy we will start preparing for the next matches.
Adrien Bonaert (goalkeeper of the Belgian national football team, goalkeeper of the Anderlecht team): Thanks a lot for all the help with all our needs and also for the brilliant organization. Once again, the tournament was amazing ! :) Congratulations to you and all the organizers and volunteers (especially Boris ;-) Once again, thank you for all !!! :)
Daniel James (coach of the winning Worcester team): Thank you once again for an incredible tournament. All of your team are fantastic people. Thank you for what you do for Blind football and giving us a chance to play :)
Jitka Medová (physiotherapist): Jitka, it was terrific! Thank you very much for the chance to be around your team. It was a really unique event, well, that's probably what everyone says and what everyone looks forward to all year long!
Tanja Hengl (goalkeeper of the Vienna team): It was a great tournament in Bučovice. We gained a lot of experience and found new friends. The result is not important for us, the main thing is that we had opportunity to play football. Congratulations to the winners of the tournament from Worcester.
Jan Bango (Avoy MU Brno’s player): This is the second BBFC I could attend. I have been playing blind football for one year and a half, and I haven’t attended a better tournament so far. Not only because we took third place but also thanks to the great atmosphere there. The former British national team’s captain Keryn Seal played with us at BBFC and gave us a lot of valuable advice. Thanks to Keryn we got so far. I appreciate this result very much because we played against the best. I have deep respect for Jitka and Buky for organizing the tournament so well. I had a great time the whole weekend, met lots of new people, and most importantly, I played soccer. I believe there will be another BBFC!
Michal Jašek (photographer): Jitka, thank you. You and Buky are incredible pros and I honestly believe that the number of people who happily (in most cases :)) volunteer shows how much they love you and what an outstanding atmosphere you are able to create.
Vojtěch Polášek (Avoy MU Brno’s player): Being a player of the Avoy MU Brno team I consider the Bučovice Blind Football Cup the height of the season. The team has the opportunity to capitalize on the experience gained during training sessions and other football tournaments. It is also very motivating to play in front of local spectators. As an added benefit, we get the chance to play against teams we wouldn’t meet otherwise.
Chloé Goussin (Anderlecht’s team navigator): It was a great tournament, congrats for all the work done and the organization, I was impressed!
