FIFA Visit the British International School Abu Dhabi

09 October 2013

Since late October, the Emirate of Abu Dhabi has hosted 24 national football teams, competing to be crowned the FIFA Under 17 World Champions. In October, the British International School Abu Dhabi was selected for a very special visit from the FIFA organisers, including the official tournament mascot, Shaqran.

FIFA visited the school to launch the in-school programme. They spent time meeting and talking with students and also held a photo shoot with some of the younger students. Later in November, FIFA will again be visiting the school to run an activation zone with students. A number of students have also been asked to be part of the opening and closing ceremonies for the tournament – an exciting honour!
