Good luck England!

As the World Cup gets underway in South Africa I would just like to wish Fabio Capello and the England team the very best of luck in the tournament. Here’s hoping that they can bring the Cup back home for the first time since 1966!

Travelling around the City, I have been really impressed with all the flags and posters that people have displayed on their cars, houses and along their streets. It is great that people feel able to show such patriotism about their national team. For our part, we shall be flying the St. George cross from our council buildings for the duration of the tournament, so let’s hope England make it all the way to July 11th!

To celebrate the World Cup locally we have helped to organise a beach soccer tournament with the Nivea Sun Yellowave Beach Sports Venue and the Brighton & Hove School Sports Partnership as part of the TAKEPART school sports festival. Children from 12 primary schools will be taking part and if anyone is interested in watching, it happens on Monday 21st June. Teams will be allocated a country that is playing in the World Cup and schools are being encouraged to get involved by designing flags and learning about their allocated country’s culture.

Let’s hope that both tournaments are a great success!

    Please, anyone but England. I look forward to the unbiased media coverage we get once they’re out!
