MFLL Soccer Tournament 2013

Sidebar graphic or photoThis past April, MFLL held its first soccer tournament, and it was a big success!

The event was organized by the UTK Italian Club and took place at the Regal Soccer Stadium on campus. Sixteen teams of students and faculty representing all languages of MFLL participated. The bleachers filled with fans wearing the flag colors of their language affiliation, and team-support was enthusiastic and cheerful to say the least. Even the volunteer faculty referees did a great job in keeping order and rules under control! After very challenging matches, the Final saw the German and Brazilian teams competing for the cup, and there was a lot of heat. Brazil won! Channel 6 discussed the tournament at its Live@5. Students have said the tournament was one of the highlights of the academic year.

The event was so successful that we are all looking forward to the next tournament in Spring 2014!
