Teqball launched in China
Brazilian football legend Cafu joined a FITEQ delegation to officially launch the sport of teqball in China during the 2019 World Youth Leaders Summit in Hangzhou at the end of September, helping promote the sport amongst young people.
Vice-President of FITEQ Viktor Huszar, Head of the Sport Diplomacy department, Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Hungary) István Iglói-Nagy and FITEQ Head of Diplomatic Relations Gergely Murányi also held positive meetings with a number of senior sports officials.
Following a meeting with the President of the Shanghai Sports Bureau and the President of Shanghai Football Club, FITEQ donated a table to the City of Shanghai, as part of efforts to further the growth of the sport in China.
Cafu then flew from China to Budapest and joined up with Spanish football legend Carles Puyol to visit underdeveloped areas in Northeast Hungary where they promoted teqball and honoured teqball youth teams and coaches who have been helping promote the sport in the region.
FITEQ Vice-President György Gattyán was delighted with the impact of Cafu and Puyol’s presence and efforts to promote the sport, saying: “They believe in our vision and will be crucial to our engagement strategy in the years ahead.”
