More great news for Football Beyond Borders, as the NUS has officially declared their support for the project.
International Students Officer Christina Yan Zang said the NUS were pleased to offer their support to the project, which she says;
"is a great development following your previously successful trips in both 2009 and 2010. From the planning and development you have already put in we are sure that this will be a fantastic event and provide a wonderful platform for football but more widely promoting cultural exchange and celebrating diversity.
With the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games coming to London next year this project embodies the values of respect, excellence, friendship, courage, determination, inspiration and equality. This will prove a great opportunity to celebrate the global Games and provide an opportunity to inspire fellow students about the power of London 2012, especially given the global appeal of Football."
More good news to come soon, as the full line-up of participating teams is almost in place! In the meantime make sure to follow us on Twitter and 'Like' us on Facebook!
