Inter-school du Football tournament was held in November, 2018 at the Zayed Sports City Grounds. Merryland International School participated in all categories, under 12, under 14 and under 16 boys.
Under 18 girls’ team also participated in this tournament.
Merryland played in the preliminary round of the league knock-out competition against various schools. Our boys’ team had a fantastic match and ultimately we won two matches.
The girls’ team of MIS School exhibited their brilliant performance in the various rounds and succeeded in getting into the quarter final of the tournament.
The main focus of holding such a festival is to provide a platform for students to showcase their football tactics rather than giving them a competition feel.
Objectives of this tournament also were to provide an opportunity for students to take part in football matches, to assist them display their skills in a fun environment and to teach students to work as a team and strengthen sportsmanship
