Slovenia has inaugurated its very first water-based pitch after a donation from TEC Darmstadt. The official opening of the pitch took place last Saturday, August 27th, with a Veternans and U10 tournament during the day. At 18:00, the Slovenian national team  met the Hungary side for the inaugural match. The Mayor of Beltinci, Milan Kerman, was present, as well as the President of HK Lipovci, Fran Maučec.
