Hanoi/HCMC Cultural Exchange with SFC
Going back in time to the early spring days of 2022, Swinburne Football Club (SFC) HCM had the honor to welcome SFC Hanoi coming to Ho Chi Minh City. Students had a good time meeting each other and an indispensable highlight was the dramatic friendly match between two teams that ended in a 2-2 draw. After the game, SFC HCM made a promise to our Ha Thanh brothers about a rematch between two clubs taking place in the Capital City someday soon. And in December 2022, SFC Hanoi was able to welcome SFC HCM back for a match.
This reunion ended with a 4-1 score for the Hanoi team.
This activity represented SDG 11 which is to make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. In details, this event contributed to increasing the spirit of solidarity between students of the two regions, raising their awareness about balancing physical and mental health, and helping students better integrate into the environment at SVAP. After the sensational morning football match, our Swinners had chances to visit some notable monuments and to try some delicious dishes of Hanoi.
