Provincial Councilor Buchmann visits the PSG stars!

Provincial Councilor Buchmann meets the world-class stars of Paris Saint-Germain!

Graz/Schladming, July 14th, 2016 – Also this summer numerous European top teams come to Styria to acquire the finishing touches for the coming tasks in the football season 2016/17. Top of the list is the squad of the French double winner Paris St-Germain (PSG), currently residing in Schladming´s Falkensteiner Hotel. Styria´s Provincial Councilor for Economics Christian Buchmann came to visit the team of PSG and had nice chats with the Brazilian stars Thiago Silva and David Luiz. He also chatted with PSG´s new manager Unai Emery.
Mr. Buchmann is pleased that the international top clubs know about our ideal training conditions and obviously appreciate the top quality of our accommodation facilities and the Styrian hospitality. These annual pre-season training camps can be seen as perfect promotion for Styria as a holiday destination. On the one hand, they provide for additional overnight stays, on the other hand, media reports about these training camps and the test matches illustrate Styria as a real showcase. David Luiz presented Buchmann a self-signed jersey as a gift. Buchmann expressed his gratitude to manager Emery by giving him a Styrian cake (“Steirertorte”). After all, Emery – with his former club FC Sevilla – succeeded in winning the UEFA Europa League three times in a row. The greatest of all gifts, however, was the PSG management´s announcement to come back to Styria again, for sure.
