Erchim wins Mongolian Football Federation Cup

Erchim FC has won the Mongolian Football Federation Cup, beating Khasiin Khulguud FC in the final on Saturday. The match ended in the extra time with a 1-1 draw. After a penalty shoot-out, Erchim scored one more goal than Khasiin Khulguud and won the Federation Cup championships. The Cup tournament has been played since September 5 at the newly built Erchim football pitch, located in front of Thermal Power Plant 4. A total of ten clubs -six leagues clubs and four amateur teams- participated. It is notable that every team competing this year had a foreign player in it. Erchim had two players from Brazil and Serbia, and Khoromkhon FC had players from Canada, Nigeria, Trinidad and Tobago and Japan. Khasiin Khulguud also had a Brazillian player and Ulaanbaatar FC had players from the Ivory Coast and Liberia. The Super Cup 2012 tournament will now be held on September 30 between seven-time National Niislel League winners Erchim and silver and bronze medalists Khasiin Khulguud. Normally, winners of the Niislel League and the Mongolian Football Federation Cup go head-to-head in the Super Cup, however, Erchim won both titles this year. The Mongolian Football Federation made a decision to allow Khasiin Khulguud to compete in the Super Cup. The winner of the Super Cup will participate in the AFC President’s Cup representing Mongolia.
