Group allocation will be the responsibility of Boris Vukcevic.
The team draw for the 25th Mercedes-Benz JuniorCup was already a very special occasion: The four groups for the two tournaments – consisting of two apprentice teams and two professionals teams – were drawn by Boris Vukcevic. In 2008, Vukcevic himself had donned the strip of the VfB Stuttgart team alongside Sebastian Rudy and Julian Schieber to play at the Sindelfingen Glaspalast. Following his early years playing for the VfB Stuttgart youth team, Boris Vukcevic turned professional to join TSG 1899 Hoffenheim (78 appearances in the German national league), while at the same time playing successfully for the German U21 team. “I was delighted to be the one asked to undertake the draw,” said Vukcevic, “this was a very special tournament for me and, I’m certain, also for all the other players.”
