University Football Tournament Among International Students: Congratulations to the Winners

On June 5, 2018, there took place the football tournament among the University international students.

The event was attended by the Director of the University Institute of International Education, Oleksii Navrotskyi, the Deputy Director of Educational and Adaptation Work of the University Institute of International Education, Andrii Polivantsev, the Head of the International Student Council, Qasim Mohammad Salman.

“Today we have a special sports event, a football tournament between international students. I hope you will enjoy the game and this event will bring you closer to Ukraine, you will feel more comfortable. May the best team win”, pointed out Mr. Polivantsev at the beginning of the event.

The Head of the International Student Council, Qasim Mohammad Salman, greeted the teams, “First of all, we are grateful to the University President, Vil Bakirov, for the excellent opportunity to realize the sports potential. In my opinion, in order to succeed in life, sports and studies must be harmoniously combined. I can tell from my own experience that football teaches us never to give up and always go ahead, because it is no matter in the game what religion you follow, the color of your skin is, and where you come from. Sports unites us.”

In total, the participants of the tournament were six teams: “Arab Stars”, “Uzbek Tigers”, “Beeta Blockers”, “Gladiators”, “Lion Riders”, “Medical Kings”.

By the results of the tournament, the victory was gained by the Medical Kings team, the II place was awarded to the Beeta Blockers team, the III place was taken by the Gladiators team.

“I am convinced that we will hold such events on a regular basis, because today I have seen a real game! Only the best university can have so many great students who play each match as a final of the Champions League”, said Mr. Navrotskyi.

At the end of the event, the winners received medals and cups.

The full photo report is available  on the University’s official page in Facebook.
