The following day, the Roca Team, the coaching staff, and the club’s president, Aleksiy Fedoricsev, were welcomed at the Prince’s Palace. Prince Jacques handed a commemorative medal to each of the players whilst the Roca Team offered the Princely family a signed shirt to commemorate the historic achievement.
