Meeting the FIFA's World Cup

On September 2013, FIFA’s World Cup tour started to visit 88 countries in 267 days. On February, the tour stopped in Guatemala. Thanks to the generous donation of the 1850 channel, 16 young Safe Passage students had the opportunity to attend the showcase event of the World Cup held in Parque de la Industria in Guatemala City. The attendees are members of weekend Soccer Club at Safe Passage. They were very excited to have the opportunity to attend this activity. PE teacher, Maynor Koxaj, accompanied them.
