The Sudanese-British presenter was delighted to endorse a project that she has called 'a great student initiative'. Badawi graduated with post-graduate degree on the Middle East from the University of London's School of Oriental and African Studies.
The endorsement was timely, as the action kicks off tomorrow at 1pm with the University of London FC defending their home turf against the visiting Paysandu University team from Uruguay and SOAS University squaring off against the University of Helsinki, who have travelled from Finland. At 3pm, the well-organized AUC squad from Egypt go head to head with Adnan Mederes from Turkey. The games will take place at The Hive Football Center in Edgware - please come down and support the teams!
