Who is Hillar Otto?
It is safe to say that it was his idea to start organising Tartu Cup as well. Thanks to him, Estonian boys have had a chance to play football with such strong opponent as HJK, Honka and TPS from Finland, Skonto and Liepaja Metalurgs from Latvia, Zalgiris from Lithuania, Dinamo Minsk from Belarus, Histon and West Ham United from England, Bialistok from Poland, Lvovi Karpaty from Ukraine, and Zenit, Smena and Megasfera from Russia.
Hillar Otto passed away in 2011, but his memory lives on to this day.
His contribution to Tartu’s and Estonian football continues through his students and coworkers. It is a great honour to organise one of the largest football events in Estonia in memory of Hillar Otto!
