Soccer time in Sinthian
Sep 27, 2016
For the second year in a row, the field across from Thread is playing host to a regional soccer tournament.
Ten teams, whose players all come from villages surrounding Sinthian, are vying for the championship. The first qualifying matches were held on September 18 and 19, and now four teams will play in the semifinals on September 29, with the final match taking place on October 6.
The tournament, which has already brought 2000 spectators to Sinthian in its opening days, is a unique opportunity to unite the area’s inhabitants. It also allows more people in the region to learn about Thread’s programming — agricultural, cultural, and educational — and avail themselves of the center’s resources.
