Football Rise As One,The David Vs Goliath China Story


 

This is a great story of just how far the football tidal wave hits in such remote areas around the world and in this story that tidal wave hits China. Football in China is the fastest growing sport and is getting more acclaimed with every year after decades of poor performance and lack of funding resulting in a decline and a sub standard culture of football in the country.This story shows how a team from Beijing travelled to play a team from a remote village in an extremely poor region in which the poverty is so bad that villagers explain that they used to sacrifice animals and blow up their bladders in order to play.The story shows how football is not just a game it is a tool and a force for good to improve relations and create communication links to some of the worlds most remote regions.

The game ended 13-7 to Beijing but the score wasn’t important, the important element is the legacy and footprints left behind to support and promote football for all and take away barriers to participation.Since the game there has been a major development for the people of Yuhu village as Budweiser have funded a full sized astro turfed pitch to be put in the village and you shall see in the video why that is such an important step for these rural communities.
