For hosting the world championship in July, the fistball section of the TV Eibach 03 got the award of the BLSV (Bavarian sports association), handed over by the mayor of Nuremberg, Dr. Klemens Gsell and Jörg Ammon (BLSV).
Furthermore the representatives of the WC organizing committee met Alfons Hörmann, president of the German Olympic Sports Confederation. Perhaps a little step into fistball becoming part of the olympic family
