Soccer match Europe vs. Africa ends with a final score of 8:4
02. Oct. 2018
On October 2, 2018, a soccer match of staff and students of FAU took place on the soccer field in Friedensau. Both teams had one thing in common: Everyone belongs to FAU where they are either registered as students or work as staff. However, they are from different European and African countries. English and German are the main languages for communication on campus. The “language” that unites them all and runs in their blood is sports. Fairness, speed, skill, and team spirit—in this match “Europe vs. Africa” it was all about goals like in any other soccer match.
The organizer Ebrahim Reshid Ahmed (student) sees great potential in this and upcoming matches, which, in the future, could also take place at other locations and in cooperation with other Central German universities: “Soccer is an effective means of appreciation, reliability, and acceptance.”
At the end, the referee, Rector Prof. Roland Fischer, announced a final score of 8:4 for the European team!
