Youth Excels With Sweat
Football is hailed as the world's first sport. It is even seen as a mark of economic strength and civilization. Throughout the world, football has been a dream for many people when they were young. People are the most courageous in following their dreams while they are in their youth. This is the type of enthusiasm and energy that is relied upon before entering into society. In this worldwide trend, Waylong Sports International Co. Ltd., Xiamen Weirong Sports Culture Planning Co. Ltd., and Xiamen Xingcai Polytechnic have come together to hold the World University Football Cup and to provide the youth of each nation a stage where they can come together to sweat and record their youth.
There is no winning or losing, only a heart of glory.
There are no stars here, only a heart of struggle.
There are no halos here, only a heart of passion.
There is no failure here, only a heart of being tested.
The 2015 World University Football Cup is about to begin!
Held in Fujian Province's Xiamen City in 2015, the participants will come from four continents. The furthest from the host nation is Brazil, while the closest is neighboring Russia. Teams from 12 nations will participate in and witness history together. The WUFC Women's University Football international competition will be held in May of 2016, and the WUFC Men's University Football international competition will be held in July of 2016.
Once a Year
Every summer, a different nation is chosen to host the World University Football Cup. This gives the student-athletes an opportunity to exchange different practice techniques, to draw from teams' differing strengths, and to learn from each other by exchanging views.
Most traditional university sports events are passively covered by the media and are only broadcast to a few channels. This limits the attention that the matches can receive. The World University Football Cup has adopted an unconventional approach. By working with the media, the matches will be broadcast to almost 200 countries. This is a truly proactive initiative!
Football's Educational Function
Thinking is an important determinant of student learning progress. In organizing the WUFC university football competition, Waylong Sports Co. wanted to use electronic media to give children at elementary schools, junior high schools, high schools and universities across the world who love football an opportunity to watch the world's best university football teams from many nations compete in a fair contest. The WUFC football competition consists of university football teams from all continents and each team's style, tactics, training, discipline, etc is different. We hope to use this practical, observational, educational platform to help change the way children think, and to provide a higher level of football skill for students.
