UNICEF to host charity tournament

 Soccer is the world’s sport. And on Oct. 8, the Society for International students will host a two-day UNICEF soccer tournament on the Front Lawn.
 United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund is an agency devoted to promoting the welfare of children and their needs. UNICEF currently helps over 115 developing countries and has a steady focus on providing emergency relief and rehabilitation for children.
 UNICEF collects money to support children around the world, and is a multi-purpose organization with the goal of achieving children’s rights, survival, development, and protection and can also help with scholarships, vaccines, basic education, and whatever else is needed.
  “Soccer is a very important sport especially outside the United States and is an excellent way to raise funds while having fun,” Antonija Tangar, the President of the Society for International Students, said.  There are around 300 international students at Valdosta State and a lot of them play on Wednesdays and Sundays on the front lawn. They had been asking for someone to have a tournament event, and this way it’s perfect and it provides an organization for the players and reserves the field.”
 The tournament plans to have a DJ and refreshments for those who attend. Each team will play a set amount of games, and the two undefeatable teams will play head-to-head at the end of the tournament.
  The number of teams will be chosen at the start of the tournament. Age requirement is at least 16-years-old or older. Fees include $90 per team or $10 per player.
 Students interested in registering for the soccer tournament can register in the front office of the Center of International Programs, which is located next to the Student Health Center on Georgia Ave.
  Students are also required to pay the fee of $90 by cash or check and show a valid VSU ID. A team name and complete team roster are also required.
