 DSC4756With a vision to create well-rounded individuals with strong values and skills to thrive within an ever-changing global society, Wellington College International Tianjin in tandem with Momentum Sports coordinated a Youth Football Tournament. It was hosted on the 13th of May at the Wellington College International Tianjin sports field. Seeing the success of the football tournament that commenced last year, the organizers wish to set up an annual event for the enthusiastic and trained players.

The players were also able to participate without a registration fee in a safe environment due to the services provided by the sponsors. Kelme provided the sports clothing and equipment such as the footballs, Chartwells provided scrumptious meal and drinks, CPIC insured all players and Raffles Medical provided medical services for the students.

In total there were approximately 300 children and 200 adults on campus either as spectators, coaches or proud parents cheering on their little ones.
