As RIASA continues to prosper, this brings with it, more and more chances to enrich the programme, and for student/athletes to gain further opportunities to travel and experience new and exciting places. On that note, Richmond University recently received an invite, for RIASA, asking if they would like to participate in the 2019 Junior Football Championships in Shenzhen, China in October.
This competition is presently in its 4th year and part of China’s National Football Campaign, endorsed by President Xi Jinping’s love of the beautiful game.
The trip will be open to both RIASA undergraduate and postgraduate students and is a funded event. The final squad, if this event goes ahead, will be chosen by Head Academy Coach and Assistant, Rob Jones, and Kamran Stead.
