Shocks on first day of FISTF Champions League

Some big names fell during the qualification round of the FISTF Champions League on Saturday.
World #1 Tiburones of Spain were the biggest casualty, finishing fourth in their group.
Seeding went pretty much to expectations. Apart from Tiburones’ elimination, #2 Stembert (BEL) came second in their group but qualified; #3 Reggio Emilia (ITA), #4 TSC Falcons Athens (GRE) and #5 Fiamme Azzurre (ITA) all won their groups.
#6 Rochefort also fell, coming third in their group but missing out on one of the best 3rd placegetters to move through to the round of 16.
