EDI Schools Football Tournament 2019

  • Disha Bhatia
We are hosting the first edition of the EDI Schools’ Football Tournament 2019 in association with the UAE School Sports Association!
At EDI, we believe that driving on our roads and playing sports share the need for skills such as anticipation, planning, and timing with the judgment of speed and distance, making quick decisions with fast reactions. With the success of the football tournament, we aim to include basketball, badminton and other sports for school students across the UAE in the future. Students from sixteen schools in Dubai participated in the tournament. The first round was held on April 27 and the finals were on May 1.
