We are delighted to partner with Teqball and provide yet another way for refugees across the USA to engage their soccer talents and ambitions in fun, healthy, and productive ways.
As part of this effort at Refugee Soccer to introduce this novel soccer-based sport, loved by Messi and Ronaldinho, to the refugee community, Teqbll has donated five (5) tables to be used by refugee kids at various centers around Salt Lake City and beyond here in Utah. (We look forward to expanding this initiative around the US soon.)
Here is how this program will work-
1. Find a location near you in Utah (see list below).
2. Register as a player below.
3. Show up often and play, practice, and prepare for competitions. Bring your friends!
4. Consider entering upcoming competitions around the USA (Ages 15+). More info soon.
5. Submit pics and videos for us to post to our dedicated Instagram account.
