Big Mango FC takes the GGWCup Trophy! And Bangkok Wins Our Hearts
GGWCup Bangkok was our fifth tournament on four continent in 17 months. It has been an eventful year. But one thing is clear to us: We are just getting started! And it is probably not the last time we will be playing for the Global Goals in Bangkok; Our great host and partners made us feel like this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship. The teams where so amazingly passionate, the venue and weather was perfect. And the skilled crew of coaches from Chelsea Foundation's Development Programme made sure that, as Nikolaj Coster-Waldau stated in the press conference: The Global Goals World Cup football matches have never been so well organized as they were in Bangkok :)
We would like to extend a heart felt THANK YOU! To all the people who worked incredibly hard behind the scenes to make this event spectacular: All the support staff on the school, the student volunteers, the medical crew from Vejthani Hospital and the crew of referees.
Thank you to all the Little Pink Falcons, Tiny Peace Panthers and Miniature Seekers of Justice.
We would also like to give a special thank you to the next generation of Global Citizens who came out to cheer for their mothers and teachers. We truly hope that you all had a great time seeing the Global Goals come to life, and that you will always remember seeing your mothers and teachers as the super cool, super stars they always are, but in particular were this Saturday!
