1. Initiative proposal:
It will be a one-day football tournament open to 8-12 football teams of children of two age groups 10-13 years and 14-17 years. With full support of playing yards, coaches, facilities, referees, welcome and cheering ceremony, opening and closing ceremony, the tournament is designed to give the kids the feeling of “the little World Cup” where they gain full respect, appreciation, support and chances to show their passion, talent and characteristics.
2. Goals
Hope Cup is an annual football event organized for the Seeding Teams to play and compete with other peer football teams from other warm shelters, football schools, sports institutions and international schools in HCMC. After two Hope Cups in 2010 and 2011, we have been received plenty of support from various groups such as disadvantaged children, international students, parents, teachers, sponsors, other general audiences. Now, Hope Cup has become a unique football event in HCMC that is highly antcipated by the children and related community every summer time, where they have a chance not only to play football but also learn more about “another world” of their peers of diverse stratum.
