This year, the UoG players have had some unique opportunities in the football world. The team had the recent opportunity to attend a Champions League game between Manchester City and the Belgium champions, Club Brugge at The Etihad in Manchester. Following that win, the students came back for another Premier League match between Manchester City and Brentford. Finally, the UDA UoG squad attended an FA Cup game between Liverpool and Norwich at Anfield.
We strive to create a football experience for every UDA student-athlete. "What an achievement for these players" said Programme Director, Mal Salville. Opportunities to attend professional matches are integral to the student-athlete experience and allow them to immerse themselves in British culture during their time in the UK.
In addition to visiting some of the top world class sites for football, the students get to bond with one another during their excursions. It's more than just building a football team, it's about building a team for life on and off the pitch.
