Martin Hinterger’s full statement:
“It’s unbelievable that a stranger can claim such things about me. Like the Sickl family, I have roots in Sirnitz. I would like to express my appreciation and thank my fans, sponsors, and supporters since childhood with ‘Hinti Cup.’ Which is why I looked around for a location Appropriate.
Needless to say, Albeck Castle, the property and the surrounding area are perfect for this. In the past 35 years, there have been countless concerts, exhibitions and theater performances by local and international artists such as Otto Schenk, Bluatschink, Franziska Pietsch and many more at Albeck Castle.
I have no knowledge of any past or future activities on the part of the Sickl family, I just want to host a football tournament and nothing more.
Any business relationship with the Sickl family will be terminated with immediate effect based on the current state of knowledge, and a ‘Hinti-Cup’ event will be examined as an alternative to indicate an additional course of action.
I have friends all over the world throughout my career in professional football as well as on a private level, and I obviously reject accusations that I am right-wing and still stand up against any kind of discrimination! “
