FC Politekhnik Yerevan are through to the UEFA Futsal Cup Main round after a 4-2 win against Preliminary round Group D hosts Stella Rossa Vienna.
The meeting of Yerevan and Stella Rossa at the Hollgasse Hall in the Austrian capital was the decisive game of the four-team mini-tournament after both sides won their opening two matches. Shamrock Rovers FC, the Republic of Ireland's inaugural entrants in this competition, pickedup their first points and confirmed third place with a 6-3 defeat of Scottish rivals Fair City Santos in the day's early game. Politekhnik now go on to Main round Group 1 in September to meet 2003/04 runners-up SL Benfica, Ukrainian champions SK Energia and Bulgarian hosts MFC Varna.
On Thursday, Group A concludes as Israeli home side Hapoel Ironi Rishon Lezion need only a draw against FCK De Hommel to qualify at the expense of their Dutch opponents. Two of the three mini-tournaments yet to commence also begin tomorrow, with Slovenia's KMN Puntar playing London White Bear FC in the three-team Group F, and AGBU Ararat Nicosia FC meeting Montenegrin debutants KMF Municipium Casino Pljevlja and Albania's KS Ali Demi up against French hosts Issy Futsal in Group B.
