Being one of the hosts, WMF Vice-President Mr. Miguel Angel Maron shared insider bits of the live draw process and how it was like: “A great atmosphere in the room and the whole event, super positive in every way, everyone loved it and said it was super professionally ran; lots of passion in the speeches and the MC was outstanding, also the impression of the Cup was totally acceptable and people didn’t expect the Cup was such a fantastic piece of art.”
And being a leader of the WMF growth, Mr. Filip Juda emphasized the importance of the support Minifootball receives from all the present guests at the live draw and expressed many thanks in making Minifootball trending and progressively developing.
With joint efforts – the increase in the value of this sport is guaranteed.
Anticipating the biggest Minifootball event this year, Mr. Juda shared: “I’m personally looking forward to welcome 32 teams, and would like to thank them for contribution in their country and congratulate them for their qualification to Australia and personally – for me the WMF World Cup means I will have the possibility to see how these 32 countries increased their performance, how they are ready with respect to organization, because performance is not the only measurement – I would like to see how teams are organized.
It also means I would have the possibility to deepen the friendship with many of other Federations; I will see the WMF community in one location together.
At the same time, I’m looking forward to new friendships with people that are coming with the Federations, with people from local districts, and again I would like to thank all the partner's thanks to whom we were able to organize this event.”
The promise that Minifootball will in future directly bring more children to sport and bring a positive contribution to society and social policies is the target set and something to work on, not only in Australia currently but around the world.
WMF is a global family.
