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.
